(PCM) Tech N9ne will be releasing his Strangeulation (Collabos) LP next Tuesday, May 6 and let me just say it is nothing short of amazing. After having a chance to check out the new LP and see Tech N9ne live during his recent tour stop at the TLA in Philadelphia, PA, I feel that Tech N9ne is an absolute breath of fresh air within an industry that has gotten a bit stale. His no holds barred honesty and commentary about the industry is refreshing and it is my sincere hope that people will open up their ears and listen.
The independent rap superstar has also just dropped the first video from the Strangeulation (Collabos) LP for “Over It” which featured Ryan Bradley. The song and video for “Over It” give a glimpse of the overall concept for Strangeualtion. You can view the video here.
The 21-cut Strangeulation features the entire Strange Music roster, including recent Strange Music signee, MURS, the independent rap pioneer who makes his first appearance on a Strange Music release since inking with the independent music titan. Since the signing, MURS and Strange Music labelmates ¡Mayday! announced they will be dropping their collaboration LP ¡MursDay! on June 10.
I recently had a chance to catch up with Tech N9ne prior to his Philadelphia concert to chat about Strangeulation, his thoughts and comment on the music industry, the up rise of social media, Google Glass and much more! You can view our full interview below:
