More rave reviews for Tech N9ne’s most recent studio album, Something Else.

Over 20 years in the game, and Tech still continues to impress and prove himself as an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Tech makes holistic albums that touch on various subjects, and that paint vivid pictures.

According to Steve “Flash” Juon from rapreviews.com, Tech presents Something Elselike a horror/science fiction movie.” Steve continues to express that he thinks Tech gave the album this type of feeling because “It might be easier for some people to understand Aaron Yates if they perceive him as an alien.” Given Tech’s constant battle with being negatively judged pre-emptively just based on his appearance and not his content…I wouldn’t doubt it. This would cause anyone to feel unnecessarily alienated.

But as Tech always does, he embraces the “strange” and continues to create inspirational and positive content that moves others.

From the review

You may find him scary and disturbing at first, but that facade covers a much deeper and complex persona that is largely positive (though he does still like to party and fuck bitches too). On the balance though, Tech N9ne’s single greatest attribute is his individuality. Showing yet again why his unique look, sound, and style attract followers. Tech is a true rebel rocker in an era of homogenized hip-hop.

Don’t just take our word for it though…
