TECH N9NE prepared his fans for his current masterpiece, K.O.D. when he dropped Sickology 101, the hottest collaboration album of the year. He announced the farewell of the TECH N9NE everyone had known. His music was getting darker, and this, he explained, was his specialty. On Oct. 27, the new TECH N9NE arrives.
With memorable features from Academy Award winners Three 6 Mafia, Strange affiliates Krizz Kaliko, Brotha Lynch Hung and Kutt Calhoun, K.O.D. allows TECH N9NE to paint the most vivid pictures hes ever attempted. Powered by tracks like Show Me A God and Leave Me Alone, it may be his most personal collection of songs yet.
Ive seen so much pain recently, TECH N9NE divulges, so many dark things. I had to take those experiences and make something beautiful out of them. I couldnt let myself fall into that hole with no chance of getting out.
It was a deep despair that, regardless of his success, TECH N9NE could not shake. While touring, appearing on TV and acknowledging his support from an ever-growing fan base, his mother was waging war with her health. Its these intimate battles that pushed his music to new corners that helped him climb out of the hole and release his anger and pain on the tracks of K.O.D.
I know people are feeling some of the same things I am, TECH N9NE confesses, and maybe this will let them see that everyone has those dark things they go through. Everyone can face them and be stronger in the end.
Boasting a career most rappers strive for, TECH N9NE has consistently proved himself to be one of the hardest working entertainers in the game. In 2008, he reaped the rewards of his tireless efforts: He SoundScanned over 1 million units, making him the most successful Independent Hip-Hop artist in history.
With hits like Im A Playa, Caribou Lou (which boasts 7.2 million MySpace plays), Riotmaker, Like Yeah and Everybody Move, its no wonder he counts a total of over 4.5 million YouTube video plays and an average of 40,000 MySpace visitors each day.
