It’s official, 2011 was the year of the N9ne. Capping off an already spectacular year, HipHopDX has named Tech N9ne 2011 Emcee Of The Year.
With the year winding down, HipHopDX has begun its annual Year End Awards which highlight everything 2011 had to offer hip hop. Giving Tech N9ne his due for a breakthrough year, the editors at HipHopDX have officially named the Kansas City King the Emcee Of The Year:
“Nobody in 2011 deserved to win this honor more than Kansas City veteran Tech N9ne. Tech released two acclaimed albums this year and appeared in several high-profile places, with All 6’s & 7’s proving to be his magnum opus. As Rap drifted towards limp lyricism and swagger over substance, Tecca Nina’s ‘chopping’ was a rude awakening that it should take precision to be an emcee. Meanwhile, the subject matter on Tech’s two releases, as well as profiled features with the likes of Lil Wayne, Jay Rock and Travis Barker was both personal and inspirational to his hundreds of thousands of ‘technicians’. With the traditional label system is in limbo, Tech N9ne’s 20 years of grinding have scraped the face off the industry as we knew it”
With the release of All 6’s And 7’s and Welcome To Strangeland, Tech N9ne demonstrated a work ethic unlike any other in 2011. The general of Strange Music now stands at the top of 2011 and looks to reach even more success in 2012. Congratulations to Tech N9ne for being named 2011 Emcee Of The Year!
