‘Seepage’ [Song]

Published: October 29, 2010 in Tech N9ne by

The title track ‘Seepage’ is the first song to kick off Tech N9ne’s latest Seepage EP. The track opens up with leftover dialogue from the preceding “Choking From It” skit. In what sounds like an ancient tape that was recovered amongst wreckage, Tech describes the purpose behind his K.O.D. album: “my angel’s dyin’…”

Then Tech explodes into a verse that possesses more verve and passion than we’ve heard from him since the aforementioned album. The beat he raps over is as ominous as can be, featuring a single bass note that continuously goes up and down an octave, offering no musical resolution, as if there’s no escape from the darkness that Tech has tried to brush off time and time again. Most telling is the second verse, where at the end he addresses all his critics that thought he went soft on The Gates Mixed Plate:

“Big Yates, he’s stuck in the sick state
Some speakin that his fate to be wack when he gets cake
Well, he gets cake and the critics they spit hate
But the sinister shit shakes, so long to the mixed plate
I just ate, pretty punany and mustard
cycles in lust, stars eating seepage, these nuts charred
What I got to say to the people who pick at and gut stars
Thinkin Imma lose the ability to bust hard, YOU FUCKTARDS!”

“Seepage” is a declaration: Tech’s still got it, but not only that, he never lost it in the first place.

    That second verse always gets me so pumped! What a great musical piece of art given birth to by life’s struggle.

  • Zach

    EP is hot, the flow on alucard is sick

  • In my 11 years of listening to Tech N9ne, I have never had any doubt in him!!!

  • PeepingTomETTE2

    What doubt?…see that is the difference between a diehard fan who is LISTENING, and a fly by night who is hearing his songs, his cry out for several things, and if you can truly understand and get to the core of what it all means…(I do, and I can)…then u know that he may or may not go in cycles etc…this man cannot be pinned down. He isn’t the easiest to read as to what come next, and if you’ve REALLY, I mean REALLY have been listening…then you know simplicity is not Tech N9ne! Nor, is predictability. I knew when K.O.D. hit….that cannot be it…WHY, because when u’re in tune w/ soulful things….it grabs you and you can sense things. + plus when darkness is in u…the dissapation is not as quick as we’d like, ANYWHO like I wrote and got published in the comment section of XXL for Oct. ( they put me as PeepingTom…hahahah its PeepingTomETTE2) I under “Strange” Therapy daily, and will continue. All hail the King!!!

    People are gonna hate on Tech no matter what he does. It’s what people do, they have no lives. He just keeps gettin’ sicker in my opinion.
