Tech N9ne's Independent Powerhouse Tour

For the Independent Powerhouse Tour 2016, acts such as Ces Cru, Stevie Stone, ¡Mayday!, Rittz, Krizz Kaliko will accompany rapper Tech N9ne. Last year, he had the biggest radio hit of his career with "Hood Go Crazy," a song that features 2 Chainz and B.O.B. “I was trying to prove to the industry that I can do anything as an independent,” he says when asked about last year’s Special Effects. “If I set out to do a song with Eminem, I did it. If I set out to do a song with Corey Taylor from Slipknot, I did it. If I set out to a song with 2Chainz and Lil’ Wayne and B.O.B. and all these people, I did it. I was trying to show the industry that talent still exists. I wanted to show that I could lock these songs down and get them cleared. I showed them that I could do and they didn’t charge me out of respect for the art. That made me feel so special.” Yates pushed the boundaries of conventional hip-hop too. A choir performs on the song “Lacrimosa,” making it sound like something by the classic rock group Queen. At a time when critics say hip-hop is dead, Tech N9ne continues to be prolific. He has another studio release slated to come out this year. (Niesel)
