Jomeezius The Genius Reflects On ‘Welcome To Strangeland’ [SM Exclusive]
Tech N9ne’s Welcome To Strangeland sought to take everyone within the Strange Music world past the stars and into God status. The massively popular Collabos album gave the Kansas City King the opportunity to experiment with a new formula and give fans collaborations based from the Strange Music roster. Thanks to his creative vision, Tech also managed to put together some of the most unique music to ever land on any of his albums. Producers like Jomeezius The Genius helped Tech create a new musical landscape that Tech best described as “enchanting”. With the album now locked into rotation for fans everywhere, we briefly caught up with Denver’s own Jomeezius The Genius and got a few quick thoughts regarding his impressions of the album.
Now that you’ve heard the album, what are some of your favorite tracks and why?
“My Favorite”, I really like that one a lot. I don’t know, the hook on that was really something special. I really like that hook and the whole concept that they came up with on that record. “Won’t You Come Dirty”, I really like that song . That song was really dope. The whole feel of it, the real heavy bass I put on it, the way they ride that. The way the hook comes in, I just love what they did with that song. Also, “Bang Out”. I was talking to Seven very briefly this morning just to let him know I really liked what he did, especially with the hi-hats on that song. Something just about those hi-hats that’s ridiculous to me. “Unfair”, that song is crazy. I don’t know, those violins, the strings that Seven put in there…it’s just crazy.
What are your thoughts on the collaborations that took place over your tracks?
I definitely liked the artists that were on the tracks. I wouldn’t have chosen any differently. I haven’t really listened to Prozak, but he’s on “My Favorite”. That was a good introduction to his work, I’m definitely a fan . Brotha Lynch, I’ve heard a lot about him since way back when I was in high school. It was crazy to have him on one of my tracks. Krizz Kaliko, I’ve always been a big fan of his. Young Bleed, I was a big No Limit fan back in the day so I’m definitely familiar with his work as well. Yeah, all the collaborations were awesome.
