It takes a special kind of artist to still be hungry after 20 years in the game. Tech N9ne is that kind of artist…and then some, as he reveals in this interview with The Huffington Post.
When asked what continues to fuel his boundless creativity, Tech N9ne revealed to The Huffington Post that just because his success as an artist is at an all time high, it doesn’t take away from the simple fact that life happens. In his answer, he also reveals a brand new lyric to one of his upcoming verses (for Strangeulation 2? The Storm?).
What still inspires you as an artist?
Life, my fans, my children. I write my life. Life is happening to me everyday. Some years ago, the IRS came after me because me being young and not knowing too much about handling my business, I had to pay back a lot of money. So when the IRS takes all your money, either you’re going to break down or you’re going to use that pain. I’ve been using that pain for a while because I’ve been building my life back up after my mistake. It could have been jail time. They ain’t playing. By the grace of God, thank the Lord that I have fans that can help me fix this problem. If I was an artist that was failing, I don’t think it would have been a brighter day. I’ve always been hungry, even before they took my money. It fueled me. It’s still fueling me. ‘People want to know how I’m still hungry but they don’t know how the IRS hung me’ is what I say in a new rhyme.
