So I was at the park smoking a blunt with some Friends and I put “Im a Slacker” by Tech n9ne from his Absolute Power Album on and one of my friends noticed something Tech said and he told me to play Hypnotized by Notorious B.I.G. And I instantly dropped my jaw from what I heard.
Has anyone else noticed that on Slacker At around 40 Seconds Tech says
“So I just, grip my piece, rip off fleece Out to take ya lip off chief, with my peeps”
On Hypnotized by Biggie at around the same time He says
“So I just speak my piece, keep my piece Cubans with the Jesus piece, with my peeps”
Listen to the 2 songs yourself, It sounds the same Flow wise aswell, Now Im not here to EXPOSE TECH N9NE Saying hes a terrible rapper or anything like Lilwayne, Drake ETC But I just thought Its kind of funny that he pulled that, I could not find anything on the internet about it either so I figured id ask to see what others think. I still love Tech N9ne and will Continue to buy all of his albums but That shit struck me hard, What do yall think about this. Biting is Biting no-matter how you look at it keep that in mind. I hope I didn’t Ruin Tech N9ne for anyone Because hes still one of the best.
LOL I just read at the very end it saying and I quote : “I hope I didn’t Ruin Tech N9ne for anyone Because hes still one of the best.” HAHA yea, I’m gonna go & cry and stop listening to Tech cuz he does what EVERY rapper has pretty much done.
I like when rappers do that every now and then. A lot of rappers will take their favorite lines from a song and twist it up. When I hear that it doesn’t pop in my head that ohh he just bit off of Biggie, it just tells me that Tech listens or use to listen to Biggie. Now Lil Wayne I’ve heard his ass take other peoples lines and say em exactly the way they were not putting any kinda twist on it at all and that’s what you call biting off some one. I heard him use almost an entire verse from an r&b singer in one of his mixtapes. Lame!!
