Based off a looped sample of the 1980’s classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)” Tech N9ne’s latest, “Don’t Nobody Want None,” is a call back to the earliest days of hip-hop.
The difference is, back then (and…come to think of it…now), nobody was rapping like Tech N9ne.
Back then emcee’s were more about keeping the party going than showcasing lyrics and a swift flow.
That’s what makes “Don’t Nobody Want None” such an energetic, colorful track; the perfect blend of old and new.
It’s not just a lesson in the history of hip-hop either; the song can teach us just as much about the history of Tech N9ne.
“Don’t Nobody Want None” may be Tech’s newest song, but it takes him back to the very beginning.
In a recent interview, we asked Tech about the song, and what it was like to fuse the two styles, and his response took it way back to the beginning.
So the first song we did with Gangsta Bop…we were down in his basement on 55th and Michigan, and he said,” we gonna rap over Planet Rock”…So, I’ve been doing that shit since I was in my teens…but now I can rap better. That’s why it was easy for me to do it… I’m so glad I got to do it, because did it justice; I’m doing so many styles in that motherfucker dawg.
