Independent Grind Tour 2010: Tech N9ne & Co. Are Taking Over
Featuring E-40, Jay Rock, Glasses Malone and Strange Music’s Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and Big Scoob

This fall, TECH N9NE hits the road with the some of the biggest names in independent Hip Hop. Starting Sept. 15 for six weeks, the Kansas City star brings audiences the chillest West Coast rap and the hottest Midwest Hip Hop. “TECH N9NE’s Independent Grind Tour 2010” melds a wide range of audiences into a single, unified Hip Hop crowd.

TECH N9NE has earned the title of hardest working Hip Hop artist. He recently wrapped his “Strange Days Tour,” went into the studio to complete his latest collabos album, The Gates Mixed Plate, and then hit the road for a five-week European tour. His hustle and flow has paid off: He’s racked up over 80.8 million song plays on MySpace, ranking him #1 on the list of Top 10 Indie Artists.

The Gates Mixed Plate – featuring Jay Rock, Glasses Malone as well as familiar Strange Music cohorts Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and Big Scoob – provides the basis for “TECH N9NE’s Independent Grind Tour.” Each of the featured artists has gained popularity through their own sweat and skills. E-40 needs no introduction as the Rap Ambassador of the Bay Area, while Cash Money’s Glasses Malone and Jay Rock rule the streets and airwaves of L.A. Long known for sharing the stage with TECH N9NE, Strange Music’s Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and Big Scoob will again treat fans to the high-energy, crowd-hyping, hit-delivering performances they expect.

TECH N9NE and Strange Music prove once again that they continue to change the face and perceptions of Hip Hop.
