Get a behind-the-scenes look into the making of Special Effects from the man himself.
In this interview with Nuvo, Tech N9ne reveals some of the original features he had in mind for Special Effects. Because of scheduling, there were two in particular who were not able to make Tech N9ne’s much-heralded album, featuring features from the likes of Eminem, Lil Wayne, Audio Push, Corey Taylor, Excision and more.
NUVO: Are last minute verses common?
Tech: Not usually. Sometimes yes, but with this caliber of artist, yeah. These are the artists at the top of their game, they’re busy man. It was harder this time. Only thing that didn’t come in was Jay-Z.
NUVO: There was a Jay-Z verse on this album?
Tech: Yeah he was going to do “Give it All,” the one with Audio Push. It was beautiful but he just didn’t have time to do it. Childish Gambino didn’t have time to do it either.
NUVO: What track was Gambino going to be on?
Tech: I was going to put him on the same one as Jay. That’s a mashup: Tech N9ne, Childish Gambino and Jay-Z, WHAT. And guess who was going to sing the chorus first. Lenny Kravitz. That was my idea.
