    Tech N9ne: All 6's and 7's(In retrospect)

    It has now been a year since the release of this album....looking back on it, what are your thoughts on it today? Do you feel it made Tech's career stronger? If YOU can personally make any changes to the album, what would they be and why?

    The songs on the album are either great or horrible, but few fall in between. It really feels like Tech is trying to please too many groups and is trying to make a variety of songs so everybody is happy. Its that struggle between staying true to his core fan base but trying to branch out and gain more fans. I dont fault him at all for that. However, I think that in his quest to appeal to everyone, he is forcing himself to make songs that he is not necessarily in the mindstate to make. There are many highs on the album but there is also a record number of songs that I wont listen to. Personally, I believe that there has been a steady decline in his creativity and passion for years. Other elements in his music (production, flow, etc) have become better but the decline in creativity and passion have left me yearning for more. Im at a crossroad on Tech. Hes still an incredible artist. However, hes engulfed himself in his work so much that it feels like he needs to take a break to really focus on his work. It wont happen because he is finally getting some well deserved recognition so Ill just continue to buy his new albums and search for the dwindling number of songs where I can still feel his heart and passion.

    I completely agree with this. And as far as making changes, i would've liked to see some of the bonus tracks such as F.A.N.S., Face Paint, and/or This Is Hip Hop be on the album instead of tracks like You Owe Like Pookie, Pornographic, etc.

    I would also remove pookie and pornographic. What I love about the album is that all the people I know who were only familiar with Tech from me,became fans because of it....

    all 6's and 7's was the beginning of a different phase of tech. i hate to say the word but its more "mainstream" than real tech. i don't have a problem with mainstream whatsoever..i just choose not to listen to it because its overrated. i think all 6's and 7's was a masterpiece, it had its flops (pornographic, pookie) but what album doesn't? k.o.d. was super dark, gates mixed plate was all party (because tech was done with his dark phase and wanted to party) and then 6's and 7's brought it all home and solidified it. it had some BIG names on it (wayne, bust rhymes, yela, twista, snoop, e-40, t-pain) which is why i think the album targeted a bigger crowd, not just tech/strange fans. its all part of the process of getting your name out there. people started noticing tech and being like "holy hell this dude is incredible" and then tech picked up on it so he then released welcome to strangeland (his worst work to date) to give the newer fans something to listen to. its a genius process. AND with the hostile takeover tour, he's spreading his work all throughout the usa. all in all i am very pleased with 6's and 7's.
