Tech N9ne Announces ‘Special Effects’ Album and Tour And Unveils Album Cover Art

Independent rap mogul Tech N9ne has announced the release of his next studio album, Special Effects, dropping worldwide on May 5, 2015. An all-star list of features and producers has yet to be disclosed, but the veteran rhymer says it will be his biggest album to date. “We’re not giving it all away just yet, but what I can say to all my Technicians who have been patiently waiting for this, get ready for your minds to be blown! We made some dreams come true on this album. You WILL NOT be disappointed. It’s a beautiful thing.” The Special Effects cover art was created by world-renowned artist, Rob Prior, who has collaborated with Tech N9ne recently on a series of special edition paintings.

2015 will also see another massive year of touring for Tech N9ne. The Kansas City rapper will be heading out on Tech N9ne’s Special Effects Tour 2015 this Spring. Tech will be joined by indie-rap mainstay Chris Webby, along with label mates Krizz Kaliko and MURS, Flint, Michigan’s King 810 and Jamaican rap-phenom, ZUSE. The tour will kick off April 8 and conclude on June 3. A complete tour itinerary will be announced in the coming weeks. Prior to the Special Effects Tour 2015, Tech will be heading back down-under for a tour throughout Australia and New Zealand in March.

The Special Effects album and tour arrive after a banner 2014 for Tech N9ne. In May, he released his Strangeulation Collabos album, which debuted as the #1 independent, #1 rap and #5 overall album in the country on The Billboard Top 200.

Tech N9ne’s “Fragile” single, which also features Kendrick Lamar, ¡Mayday! and Kendall Morgan, was Tech’s biggest radio hit to date, peaking at #11 on the Rhythmic radio chart. The cut’s success led to Tech performing the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in June.

As Strangeulation and “Fragile” ruled the charts and radio, respectively, Tech N9ne was traversing the United States and Canada in 2014, headlining three tours. The Independent Grind Tour featured Freddie Gibbs, Jarren Benton and Psych Ward Druggies, while his Tech N9ne’s Band Of Psychos Tour paired Tech N9ne with a live band for the first time in his career. Tech N9ne also went north of the border for the 2014 Strangeulation Canadian Tour and performed at several festivals including The Aftershock Music Festival and Slipknot’s annual Knotfest Festival.

    Pumped Chris Webby is goin on tour with them. I’ll tell ya, May 5th seems like an eternity away though.

    So it was delayed again..might be a good thing maybe he finally got Eminem on a track. That’s a great reason to delay it 2 months.

  • jesse

    I know right? Lol I was agonizing over waiting until march but now may. But that’s alright. Don’t want him to rush it

  • jesse

    He said some dreams are coming true on this album. Maybe he actually got eminem on it

    They better hit the Music Farm in Charleston, SC they owed us because they pulled it off from Tech’s Independent Grind tour last year.

  • RandomViolentActs

    He skipped right passed las Vegas I really hope he goes there this time

    While on tour your coming through the Midwest right, to that O,NE place where all the hunny’s be. Where we are corn fed and drink and drive still struggling to survive probation can lick my nuts but it will be all good as long as you come to the location I can attend, court order does not allow to visit other states. See u when u come through…see you when I see you

  • Tony the Technician

    cant wait for these tour dates to be released, every year i get myself (or my girl gets em for me) tickets to his show for my birthday. Last year saw him up in mass, year before that in a small ass venue in NY, year before that we were in mass again, year before that we were in Heartford CT, it just keeps going on and on. I wanna see him at another small venue this year, i love how close you can get and how he can actually see you!! see you soon tech!!!!
