The King remains at the top for this one.
Known as one of the most – if not THE most, successful independent rappers of all time, Tech N9ne has long amazed the outside world by building an empire and garnering worldwide recognition without the help of traditional mainstream media.
Between breaking records on tours and hitting #4 on Billboard with All 6’s And 7’s, Tech has been pretty on point the last few years.
It’s appropriate then that Complex Magazine list the Midwest monster at #1 on their list of “The 50 Most Slept-On Rappers Of All Time”. The brand new list seeks to rank to the biggest underdogs in the rap game – in other words, who’s been overlooked the most?
With a lengthy list that included Big Pun, Proof, Mac Dre, and Obie Trice, Complex gave the top spot to Tech N9ne with a complete breakdown of how it is he came to sit at the throne:
We’ll never understand why hip-hop heads front on Tech. He’s a rapper’s rapper, a first-rate lyricist capable of a variety of styles who can spit double-time with the best of them. Plus, he puts on one of the best live shows in all of hip-hop (he was highly offended when the L.A. Times accused him of lip-syncing). In other words, he’s the exact opposite of all the things bitter rap fans say is wrong with rap music today.
It must be good to be King.
