Hollywood Ready For Tech N9ne?

Published: November 9, 2010 in Tech N9ne by

There are many things that draw people into the world of Tech N9ne. His music touches different people around the world. His personality is like none other. When Tech hits the stage, it’s like he is the star of a large Hollywood production. Already a master of his craft, would it be so far fetched for Tech N9ne to consider a career in movies? As recently reported by our blog, Tech N9ne has joined the cast of Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D. A re-imagining of sorts, Tech N9ne is set to appear in a cameo role. Acting though, is not something new to the Kansas City rapper.

Tech has appeared sporadically in a few films in the past. Mostly in minor roles, the rapper has had a little experience in front of the camera. Among several documentaries, Tech appeared in the 2006 film Vengeance. The independent release also starred Danny Trejo, Baby Bash, Diamond Dallas Page, and Jason Mewes. Later that same year, Tech was asked to head up the score for the real life drama Alpha Dog. Although plans later changed, Tech N9ne’s music was still prominently featured in the major motion picture.

In 2009, Tech appeared as himself in the comedy faux-documentary Life of Lucky Cucumber. Starring Preston Lacy, of Jackass fame, this film was also an independent release. Knowing just how theatrical Tech N9ne could be on stage and in real life, it is no wonder he was cast as himself. Taking that into consideration, its not really a stretch to think that Tech N9ne could one day be cast in a leading role.

Rappers like Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube have been staples of Hollywood films for years. They have found another outlet to express their creativity, not to mention the money to be made. Comedies such as Next Friday and The Wash benefited from the blend of Hollywood and hip hop. In more recent years, rappers like T.I. have found moderate success in a string of films. It has become evident that movie studios are turning to rappers’ drawing power to boost ticket sales in an otherwise uncertain industry.

Following in the footsteps of many before him, should Tech N9ne step into the world of acting? Could he be the next action star? Perhaps Tech could tap into his dark side and give the performance of a lifetime as a criminal mastermind. We are all aware of Tech’s split personalities: The Clown, The King, and The G. Tech N9ne’s personal life plays out like a movie over the span of his albums. Would Tech ever consider playing himself in a bio-pic?

We would like to hear what you, the fans, make of all this. Would you ever like to see Tech N9ne conquer the world of acting or would you prefer he stick to music?

  • THE3millionThug

    tech lynch and proz should team up and direct/produce and maybe even star in their own horror film

  • I would definitely love to see Tech N9ne act. I’m already anticipating the release of this new “Night Of The Living Dead” movie because he’s in it (and the movie itself should be fun to watch.)

  • Hell yeah! I think Tech would be an amazing actor! That would be fuckin bomb to see him in a movie! I could see him as a criminal mastermind. Haha I say go for it Tech.

  • That would be the shit!!!!

  • Dsflettersornumbers

  • Scotts2big

    Wow first comment. Tech, I believe I am one of your biggest fans. I love your music. But I think you should do what make you happy bro. If you just stick to music cool, I you start acting cool I would support you you have never put out anything that even came close to being bad, and I think it would be interesting. Do you.

  • daniel wengel

    Don’t sell out like ice cube and do stupid ass comedies, keep it gangster, that’s all I have to say! Do whatever you feel is right tech!!

  • Lisa Marie

    I think that Tech could do a cross over into movies without conflicting with his talents as a musical artist. He’s talented period, it doesn’t have to stop with music.

  • Extjerry

    Tech Would Make Some Bad Ass Movies, He Should Do It

  • Delson Pushetonequa

    hell yeah now that would be the shit….. a horror movie made by prozak, brotha lynch, and tech n9ne…… no telling what kind of dark, sick, twisted fucked up movie these 3 minds can come up with…….

  • J.Phatts

    I just want to see him takeover the world… He deserves it.

  • @J.Phatts
    exactly what i was gonna say.

  • Stonecold41886

    fuck ya that would the shit ….. you guys would make money off me for sure…… TECH N9NE !!!!!

  • Krisjunck

  • Mjohnson0513

    he would be a guy villian in a big money type movie w/ icp

  • Mjonson0513

    he would be a great villian in a big money type movie w/ icp

  • Hollywood Films

    This post about Hollywood films was helpful. I found another site http://movies.desimartini.com where you can information about hollywood films.

  • Heavens_sword_18

    hell yea tech should do movies it would be sick to go see him in theaters

  • Tech should deff. do a criminal mastermind role, he would be damn good at it. Or play a role of a psycho who becomes lost in his own mind, and has to fight off the spilt personalities! just throwin it out there

  • Like doing a movie about the song “Trapped in a Pyscho’s Body”, would be sick to see him fight between the King the Clown and the G.

  • Carm!3

    That criminal mastermind role sounded really really awesome!! Would love to see that:). Tech N9ne playing a role as somewhat of a deranged or psychotic person that was very intellegient would be amazing. Even though I’m not all into Hollywood and stuff I think that Tech would do an awesome job lol, If Tech wants to try it out so be it!! Have Fun! 🙂

  • Aaron Ross

    Is that really a question? I would like to think that any real Tech N9ne fan (which is all of them) would like to see Tech take over everything. We want to see Tech take over music (which he already has in mi opinion), acting, create his own tv show, make a comedy stand up, write a book….do watever he feels he is ready to commit his mind and time to for us (his loyal fans). But we will stay loyal and support him no matter what he does. I am just eagerly awaiting his next move.

  • BlazingReaper

    hell yes Tech should go for movies but he should continue his rapping he kicks ass id love to see him portray a dark oriented person that is where he can do his best work it seems i doubt he will see this but Go Tech N9ne! your amazing the only musician i can relate to your shit has helped me through some of the toughest times of my life keep doing what your doing and thank you for making your music
