Sep 15 2010

Tech N9ne has brought together some of the hottest independently-wealthy hustlers in the game to travel across America and show everyone what live hip hop is all about for the Independent Grind Tour. Celebrating their status as a monumentally successful grounds-up operation, Strange Music promises nothing less than the livest show around, the same show that fans have come to expect, the same show that built Strange Music as the most successful independent record label in the world. Tech has brought his usual partners in rhyme from The Strange Music label: Kutt Calhoun, Krizz Kaliko, and Big Scoob but has also put together the likes of E-40, Jay Rock, and Glasses Malone. With a line up like that this tour is undoubtedly in contention for best live show of the year. The dates are as follows:
