‘Worldwide Choppers’ Premiere Recap [Video]
The “Worldwide Choppers” premiere on XXL Magazine’s UStream channel was a resounding success of lyrical showmanship and fan viewership, reaching up to 3100+ viewers at the height of it’s popularity, setting an all-time high for Tech N9ne UStream broadcasts.
Yelawolf, who is one of the Choppers featured on the song, Skyped in towards the beginning of the broadcast, but due to technical difficulties, was only able to stay on the line for a little while. During the track’s play, the social stream of fans across the world scrolled almost as fast as the spitters featured on the song. While the song played you could see everyone responding at a rapid pace, commenting on who’s verse was was being heard. So many people tuned in that they played the song THREE times and also snuck in “I Love Music”, which features Kendrick Lamar and Oobergeek, also set to be released on All 6′s and 7′s.
Tech explained how everyone laid their verse down, describing a funny story behind Busta Rhymes verse. As it tuns out, Rhymes got the track with Tech’s verse recorded, and called Tech to ask “Who were those five niggas you got on there!?” It turns out it was just Tech the whole time, to which Busta replied “You’s a crazy nigga son!”
Tech went on to talk about the upcoming album: explaining the meaning behind the title, commenting on the features (Jay Rock, B.o.B., Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Mint Condition, members of Deftones, and more), and also the production behind the album.
The song “So Lonely” was mentioned, a song that was supposed to feature Eminem, but due to deadlines did not. The song almost got disposed of until Tech found out about Blind Fury, the skilled battle MC who was crowned Freestyle Friday champ on 106 and Park. Tech was so impressed that he threw Blind Fury on the track, resulting in one more gem for the fans come June 7, 2011 (the release date for All 6′s and 7′s).
Before he left, Tech was sure to mention Big Scoob’s Damn Fool, citing that “Drunk and Stupid” was a song that has garnered a lot of positive fan response. Vanessa Satten, Editor-in-Chief at XXL Magazine, mentioned that she thought “White Bitch” was an “interesting” song and one that she had liked.
