As 2011 approaches a halt we can expect an outpour of “Best of” lists to start appearing all over the web, and with Tech N9ne’s monumental All 6’s and 7’s release catching the attention of the industry and the underground alike we can expect Tech to have a prominent presence as editors recount the best releases of the year.
Boombox.com just listed All 6’s and 7’s as the ninth best release of 2011. Tech shares company with Drake, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Beyonce to name a few. On All 6’s and 7’s, The Boombox writes:
“Known for his often-disturbing lyrical imagery, which coined him the title ‘King of Darkness,’ ‘All 6’s and 7’s’ — as Tech N9ne puts — sheds ‘some light with the dark,’ thanks to tracks like ‘I Love Music’ and the upbeat, Busta Rhymes-featured ‘Worldwide Choppers’. But Tech N9ne still stuck to his old tricks on tracks like ‘Pornographic’, a XXX-detailed song about making a porno; and the masochistic, B.o.B-produced ‘Am I Psycho?’ Appreciation for the rapper was dutifully noted when the album debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, Tech’s highest chart debut ever.”
