‘The Apex’ – XXL Reviews Tech N9ne’s ‘Special Effects’

Special Effects Reviews XXL

XXL took to reviewing Tech N9ne’s latest masterpiece with Special Effects.

Tech’s 15th studio album got its share of print in the famed hip hop publication, as XXL took to reviewing the magnum opus. XXL gave the album a positive, glowing review, citing that Special Effects should be the album that ushers Tech N9ne into mainstream consciousness. They also point out the effortless dexterity in which Tech N9ne tackles different genres of music on one cohesive album.

PEEP

While the affectionate themes wholly resonate as Special Effects unfolds, if there’s one thing aside from his lyrical skill that has separated Tech N9ne from his peers over time it’s his experimentation with different genres as a base for diverse subject matter. While it’s the same approach that has deterred some potential listeners in the past, at this point, Tech’s genre-crossing (hardcore rap, alternative rock, metal, electronic, gospel, etc.) has become more of a distinctive and welcomed trait instead of bizarre or disjointed. With a colossal 20 features from the likes of Eminem, Lil Wayne, E-40, T.I., Hopsin, 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti and Corey Taylor of Slipknot, to name a few, the album is as diverse as possible.
