The Kansas City Star published a review of Tech N9ne’s Seepage EP today. The review, for the most part, is a typical write up of Tech’s music and the basis for the EP. The author, Joel Francis, really helps set the tone of the dark music on the EP, and seems to have a good handle on Tech N9ne’s catalog. In trying to highlight the darkest points of the CD, the author had the following to say:
The blackest moment is the brief “Bite Me.” Stopping shy of two minutes, the song opens with a snippet from an unmade porno before Tech N9ne fantasizes about vampirically raping a “teen ho.” The female-sung chorus of “bite me/excite me” suggests the act is consensual, but the screams and pleas to stop through the song’s fade reveal the truth. The sick savagery is reinforced with a creepy violin loop that recalls the “Transylvanian Lullaby” in “Young Frankenstein.”
Tech took exception to the comments about rape and voiced his concern over his official Twitter. Turning to his fans for their thoughts, he tweeted this:
“Help me out Yaw! If dracula bites a girl against her will its not rape right?”
“Well maybe even attempted murder cause dracula kills but not rape right?”
He later showed his concern over the article as well:
“Well why the Fuck the kc star say I’m raping a teen on BITE ME?”
“she asked me to bite her DURING consensual sex then I bit all the way and she said stop biting.”
“They said I’m talkin bout raping a teen Ho when she was down for the sex PLUS asked for the biting!”
“I won’t take slanders like this. She was all the way wit it till I went super nosferatu on her! NOT RAPE!”
“WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN WHEN MY MAMA READS THE KC STAR TODAY AND READS THAT?”
“AND MY MOTHER IN LAW AND AUNTS AND MY PREACHER UNCLES& MY MUSLIM STEP DAD!”
Obviously disheartened by the words chosen in the review, Tech N9ne has shown that he is not shying away from voicing his opinion.
