Tech N9ne offers his invaluable input on the art of rapping in the book How To Rap: The Art and Science of the Hip Hop MC. Written and complied by Paul Edwards, the book features interviews from a great variety of new-and-old school emcees such as Nelly, Big Daddy Kane, Mobb Deep, Twista, Public Enemy, E-40, Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9, and many more. Tech and others offer advice on a variety of topics such as rhythm, flow, content, delivery, pitch, and breath control. Here’s a pearl of Tech N9ne’s wisdom as he discusses his signature pitch:

“I always loved pitch. A lot of rappers are bland, but Tech N9ne, I love pitch. Like I could easily tell you my name…what’s your name? ‘Tech N9ne,’ but you’ll remember ‘Tech N9nnnNne!’ It’s all in the pitch- that makes people remember it.”

How To Rap: The Art and Science of the Hip Hop MC is available online at Amazon.com as well as your local bookstore. You can also visit the book’s website for more information.
