2011 was a big year for hip hop. The same year that saw debuts from artists like Big Sean and J. Cole also proved to be one of the most successful for Kansas City’s own independent giant, Tech N9ne.
Following a week of critical acclaim from all over the web and the award for HipHopDX’s Emcee Of The Year, Tech N9ne once again makes waves as HipHopDX has included All 6’s And 7’s among its Top 25 Albums Of 2011. The list, which includes releases from Joell Ortiz, Watch The Throne, and Kendrick Lamar, takes a look at the very best releases from the past year. Praising the album’s unique approach, HipHopDX writes:
“Tech N9ne pulled out all the stops for All 6’s & 7’s, recruiting an assortment of features and producers alike that hadn’t visited Strangeland before. And yet, he made it all work, as if there was any doubt his plan would fail. In the process, he also expanded his brand of rapid-fire lyricism and compelling content, a customary style that ‘Technicians’ have lauded for over a decade. At 40 years old, Tech N9ne is arguably at the pinnacle of his career, and All 6’s & 7’s is a good indicator of why.”
With less than a week to go in 2011, Tech N9ne’s tremendous year continues to earn him respect and admiration from critics all over.
