Tech N9ne Live Interview Recap

Published: February 22, 2012 in Strange Music by

Tech N9ne

On Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 3:30 PM CST, that Klusterfuk that you know and love, Tech N9ne was on the air to take your calls and answer your questions.

With the Klusterfuk EP on the way, a world-record setting tour about to kick off, and a video on 106 And Park‘s rotation, there was a lot to talk about!

Here were some of the many highlights of the interview:


  • Tech reveals that he recorded the entire EP in four days, a total of seven tracks, one intro and six songs.
  • The EP features a lot of storytelling from Tech (as has already been displayed in the pre-release song “Blur”) and also many sung choruses from Tech, who revealed that he sings on four choruses. Some of the titles revealed were “Awkward”, “Can’t Stand Me”, and “DKNY (Different Kind of Nigga You)”, which Tech said was his favorite song and closes out the EP.


  • For the Hostile Takeover 2012 tour, Tech reveals that he is switching up the set a lot, pulling out a lot of old songs, many which he had to remove from the final set list due to time constraints (one verses on classics such as “Imma Tell” and “Planet Rock 2K”).
  • Tech reveals that he will be performing his verse from “Unfair” on the new tour.
  • Tech says that the “drinking section” is the best it has ever been, with new additions such as “Hard Liquor”, “I Need A Drink”, and “KC Tea”.
  • On Machine Gun Kelly, co-headliner for Hostile Takeover 2012: “It’s going to be wild to have somebody that wild on tour with me and bring that much energy to the stage….MY fucking crowd is going to LOVE MGK. I’ve seen it. This motherfucker is rock and roll, punk, hip hop–everything.”

Next Album

  • Tech reveals he’s headed to Los Angeles to collaborate for his next album: “What I’m about to do in LA is going to fuck everybody up.” Who is he collaborating with in LA? Only time will tell.
  • Tech reveals that he’s highly interested in working with rock and roll bands for his next album and that it is going to be something totally different from anything he’s ever done.
  • The phrase he’s using to guide Seven during the beatmaking process is “Bigger. Bigger than All 6’s and 7’s, bigger than Welcome to Strangeland.” Seven has already submitted a beat for the next album and that fits the bill. Tech described it as “humungous.”

      I’m a vey eclectic music listener, one of my favorite songs you’ve done is Little Pills. I’d like to hear Tech weigh in on working with acts such as Hed PE and KMK, Rock is where my heart is and hip hop is where I was raised. Also what acts are out there that you my be anxious to work with in the future?

    • BrianGGibbs

      Do something Truely Strange, seek out and collab With the group Die Antwoord. I could only imagine the dopeness.

    • When are you going to sign Flawless Real Talk!! You taking forever Tech!! I was going to buy VIP but I change my mind since he wont be there!!

    • Hunter Hill67

      Hey tech n9ne I rap myself and I was wondering if I could get some rapping tips and ways to make my rap way better

    • Mharrison693

      I just have one question or you Tech. Why are you doing your show in Phoenix, AZ at celebrity theatre and not at the Marquee theatre in Tempe, AZ like you always do?

    • Dmdedbeetz

      I was thinking the same thing. He is playing a youth hockey rink here in Pittsburgh instead of an entire outdoor stage. Whats the deal tech?
