The infection is out and there’s no stopping it. E-40′s ghoulish collaboration with Tech N9ne and Brotha Lynch Hung gets its highly anticipated official music video and no one survives this one!
For the second part of his epic hip hop horror saga, Coathanga Strangla, Brotha Lynch Hung featured The King of Darkness himself on two of the tracks to explore the darker corners of the soul. Both songs feature Tech on the last verse: “ICU” a spooky and moodier Tech N9ne with a modulating volume and cadence, boasting an incredibly intricate rhyme scheme (what else would you expect?). “Takin’ Online Orders” features a Tech N9ne let out of his cage, ripping a beat to pieces in triple time, undoubtedly rising to the challenge of sharing the spot with an MC as elite and intricate as Brotha Lynch Hung.
