Tech N9ne SLAMS ‘Fan’, Addresses Wayne Collabo Via Twitter [Social]
Ever since Tech chose to accept Lil Wayne’s offer of a future collaboration he has received much negative feedback from his diehard fan base. Many fans identify Tech as a voice of the underdog and view a collaboration with Wayne as “selling out.” Some simply do not like Lil Wayne as an MC and think that a collaboration would be a disservice to Tech’s skills as a mic controller. For whatever reason, the backlash has been immense. Tech, seemingly fed up with it all, decided to air out his opinion on the matter on his Twitter.
First Tech forwarded his followers a message he received from a fan:
“Fwd: Ur gna lose ur uniqueness if u do a song wit wayne and a lot of ur fans…bad mooove….. < beautifuL>”
Tech’s comments on the message with disgust:
“That’s the bull shit I gotta wake up to . Now Imma send Yaw my response to the bitch”
Tech then forwards his response:
“Fwd: Fuck you and the fans who talk shit bout my blood homie.”
“Fwd: How the Fuck you gonna come to an up close and personal tech show and see all that emotion and uniqueness then turn right around an …” (Tech often tweets beyond the word limit)
“38 years of weird and raw cause I do a song with one of the biggest rappers in the world. Fuck you and all the simple minded mutha fuc …”
The fan replied to this, which Tech forwarded to his followers:
Here Tech seems to be saying that the perception of his creative message doesn’t mean anything compared to what he wants to do. Tech’s method has always been to do whatever he wants, rap about whatever he wants, with whoever he wants, whenever he wants. Evidence of this mentality can be found with the release of K.O.D., an album made full of dark content despite pressure to continue his commercial hot streak that started with Killer and continued with Sickology 101. If Tech caved into the pressure, and chose not to collaborate with Lil Wayne because of angry fans, then in all reality he would be going back on what he’s always stood for: complete artistic freedom. Tech goes on to hypothesize where the cited fan’s anger is really coming from:
“Fwd: Fuck last night bitch just cause you couldn’t Fuck me you mad?“
Kutt Calhoun shared his two cents on the matter:
“@TechN9ne ppl dnt understand shit do they? Strange musics uniqueness will b brought to the forefront on a national level n continue to fly!!”
Fans have come out in droves on his Twitter account to support Tech in his moment of frustration.
What do you think of the collaboration and Tech N9ne’s response?
