So, I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile now. I just wanted to talk about some of the general misconceptions made by newer Tech fans. Of course, the main topic being that Tech N9ne is actually a group of rappers. And you all know how bad we (as life long fans) bash new comers when they make this misconception. Well, in reality, we shouldn’t be doing that. In 99% of Tech’s most popular songs, he has Kutty, Krizz and usually someone else on the track. So, these new fans that hear all Tech’s popular songs, are hearing the same other voices on the track as well. I think its obvious why this misconception is made, isn’t it? I mean, say a new rapper comes out; and all his popular songs feature the same group of rappers. Wouldn’t a lot of us assume that these new songs are from a group? And the name “Tech N9ne” in-itself doesn’t exactly scream “solo artist”. If Lil Wayne had a different name that wasn’t so directly solo, I bet a lot of people would assume that Cash Money was a group, instead of the reality that they are a label. You see what I’m saying? I just think we should be more … friendly… to new fans. Simply explain why they are wrong. Not ALL new fans deserve this treatment of course. If their favorite song is “Ima Player” or “Caribou Lou”… you still have my full permission to e-slap their momma.
I agree and will ad that if anyone goes to a Tech show who are they going to see? Tech, Kutt, and Krizz. I really dont think its that big of a deal if people that dont know think Tech is a group, my girl says they all the time and it dont bother me.
i think no matter what 85% of strange music fans are mentally challenged. lack of education and the massive intake of drugs and liqour help that factor. but hey if you love it, fuck it think what you wanna think!
I agree with the newbie bashing. Give em a chance and if they are repeatedly stupid then they deserve it. I still get bashed so its whatever but it could be done better. But i think tech N9Ne is a solo name. Its a singular gun in real life. Its a cool name. Its original. If people don’t get that then fuck em. And if anyone actually listens to tech then they will know that he’s not a group. That misconception to me atleast is an easy fix. Especially if your checking out this site you should know by now that he’s only one dude. I like the fact that he has other people on alot of his songs cause i think it breaks up the monotony of just one voice doing the hook and verses. It makes for better music. But completely understand where your coming from on the post.
the biggest misconception that Tech is dealing with now is fans thinking he is going industry…when in fact he is simply in a different place in his life, so his music isnt as dark as it use to be. every album changes with Tech’s personal turmoil…for example…KOD is dark as all hell because of what he was going through at the time, his mother and issues with fans being the main influence…Everready was mainly what you would call “club hits” (even though they are hard as hell) because he was celebrating his life and the fact that he didnt die on the Montana highway that has taken many lives in the past. Tech will forever change his image and music with his life experiences and i think that fans should embrace that rather than shun him for being happy with his life…
