Thanksgiving With Tech N9ne [EXCLUSIVE AUDIO]

Published: November 25, 2010 in Tech N9ne by

What’s Thanksgiving like for an elite MC? For a more personal bit, we asked Tech, Kutt, and Krizz some questions centered around the holiday that brings us all together for some good eating. Here’s what Tech had to say.

Editor’s Note: Upon asking Tech what he was the most thankful for in 2010, the answer he gave was more poignant than expected, and we felt it was important to let the fans hear it for themelves. From now on we will attempt to implement more audio clips for our exclusive interviews with Strange Music Artists. Click on the hyperlink below to hear Tech N9ne.

What are you the most thankful for in 2010?
What Tech is thankful for in 2010

What are some of the traditions you and your family have for thanksgiving?
We eat, we sleep, and we go to the movie. I don’t know how I’m going to go this year. [referring to autograph requests, etc.]

Do you have any traditional foods for Thanksgiving within your family?
Yes. We get smoked turkey…and dressing…macaroni…and cheese…and broccoli-and-cheese casserole–I love it. Candy yams. Cranberry sauce to go with the turkey and dressing–not with the nuts in it though I like the plain cranberry sauce. Then we go to [my wife’s] people’s house. They’re French-Creole so they make dirty rice that’s wonderful. They make Louisiana food. It’s wonderful. I live for that dirty rice because we only have it once a year.

Do you have any memories from a certain Thanksgiving that stand out to you the most?
Yeah but it aint good so I don’t want to talk about it! [laughs]
It was family oriented so…you know what I’m saying? It wasn’t cool.

Is there a certain relative you don’t normally get to see that you look forward to seeing on the holidays?
My children. They’re flying in. Dontez is already here with me. My two girls man, you know what I’m sizzlin’? Rainbow and Aaliyah. I get to laugh for a whole week–they’re the funniest people I’ve ever met.

Who cuts the turkey?
The wife. She cuts it.

Pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie?
I like pumpkin pie.

Cool whip or no?
I mean I can do it but I don’t really have to have it. I’m not really a sweets type of dude. I don’t eat dessert or nothing like that. I don’t munch on candy. Dessert to me is liquor. Every time I eat, whether it’s lunch, dinner, or a late-night snack, I always have me a drink afterwards.
(It’s important to note here that Jim Morrison was quite the drinker. Coincidence?)

    Hell yeah Tech, Thats some good eating. I had something similar to that tonight. Happy thanksgiving! strange music all night and day, yup yup TECH N9NE!!

  • I couldn’t believe when people were trashin’ the Gates Mixed Plate, albums definitely sick. I didn’t even know Tech heard all the shit people were talkin’. I’ve bought every Tech album & still haven’t found one reason to not buy Strange albums, it’s crazy how ill Tech and these dudes are. I feel that Tech’s fans are scared of change & just bitched out & jumped ship on his music cuz they’re so anti-mainstream and think that their too cool for that shit but they ain’t. Nobody is. Everyone wants Tech to hate the industry and be against it & not conform to it. He’s successful, isn’t success the best revenge? Tech N9ne already buried the mainstream.

  • I seriously cried when i listened to that audio. It pisses me off people on trtn are so mean and critical about sh*t. & actually went so far to push Tech into a dark place, it aint right! This is why I <3 TGMP after I listened to that audio i was so upset….Im listenin to TGMP now, and it brought me back into a happy place. Thanks Tech, ive always loved everything you did, always will 🙂 Much love, always <3

    yo The Gates Mixed Plate….. there were a couple songs on there that were a lil disappointing but nothing too bad. Since day 1 I been blastin TGMP. Far Out, Pow Pow, Loud, Too Many Girls, all dat shit! its a straight banger! straight club shit! party shit! some street shit! There were some moments when Tech’s lyrics weren’t all that but I didn’t complain. cuz the same shit happened on MLK. We all know Tech does kind of lighter music on his Collabos discs. So what? Yall a bunch of emo motherfuckers? always dark n shit? hell naw, sometimes I listen to dark shit, sometimes light shit. sometimes GOOD, sometimes BAD. sometimes 6, sometimes 7. sometimes Ang, sometimes Hellic. Get it? stop bitchin and enjoy music cuz Tech N9ne gives us a lot of music to enjoy.
