When it comes to the radio game, Tech N9ne is starting to take over. According to the independent giant, this is the way it should be.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Tech N9ne hints at the features on his next album, discusses the success of Special Effects, and touches on crossing over to black audiences through his music. A revealing bit of the interview is when he talks about mainstream acceptance.

Peep

Did it hurt your feelings that the mainstream wasn’t open to you?

Fuck yes! Fuck yes, man! Because I always felt like I was better than everybody, man. I don’t fucking like barriers. Yes, you start on the street level, but if it’s good, it’s going to reach everybody and that’s what was happening. How you gonna not take chances with our shit and you do [on] these replicas? You put these replicas on the radio. You put these replicas on video. And that’s what our kids turn into. Fuck that — put innovators on the fucking radio, so our kids aren’t listening to that shit and there will be an Eminem, there will be a Kendrick Lamar.
