Just when emcees thought it was safe, Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, and CES Cru struck back with the release of a live performance video for the hit collaboration, “Unfair”. With furious flows and high adrenaline deliveries, the exciting new video landed on some of the biggest websites in hop hop media.
What we have here is a two minute video of various underground artists introducing themselves from Australia’s Uncovered – you may remember Uncovered from the interview they did with Tech and Krizz Kaliko a few weeks back. While one may not know all the featured artists, check out the 1:05 mark for Krizz (Kali Baby!), 1:17 for Obie Trice, and 1:29 for Tech N9ne stating The Pledge followed immediately by fellow psycho Hopsin.

Somewhat reminiscent of that old Monty Python sketch where a man is interviewing another and there is only one microphone and that microphone was always on the person who WASN’T talking, Underground TV brings you this exclusive interview of Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko when they were ‘down under’ earlier this month. In addition to touching on his favorite part of 2011 – Tech visiting the troops in Kuwait, Tech states he has “a lot of plans but not enough time” for 2012 – including Klusterfuk AND an untitled solo album AND the highly anticipated Kabosh album, add Kali’s Kicking and Screaming and you got yourself a mighty fine year.

Though incorrectly labeled as a new track off of Tech’s upcoming, and insanely anticipated, new EP Klusterfuk, this song “Quick Flick” may just help tie you over until the album drops. Continue reading
While the user has the video labeled as “Alucard” live, and it most certainly is, for the first 22 seconds at least when Tech performs the chorus a capella, then the lights die down and flames engulf the stage as he and Krizz jump right into the first verse of “Seepage”. Both tracks can be found on Tech’s Seepage EP.
Tech’s most recent tour took him to some of the biggest cities in Australia. Joined by Krizz Kaliko, the Kansas City King stormed the HeatWave music festival before sitting down for one of their funniest backstage interviews yet.

The No. 1 Independent Rapper In The World Announces Tour With Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Krizz Kaliko And Others Scheduled For 90 Shows In 99 Days, Making It The Longest Rap Tour Of All Time
January 18, 2012
(Los Angeles, CA) Independent rap superstar Tech N9ne is scheduled to make history and shatter records in 2012. The Strange Music maven is slated to headline the “Hostile Takeover 2012” Tour, which will launch in March and includes 90 shows in 99 days, making it the longest tour in rap history. It will make stops in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Denver and Seattle, among other cities.
“I started planting the seeds for this music thing to expand more than 10 years ago and to see it be recognized globally like this is a beautiful thing,” says Tech N9ne, who will be joined on “Hostile Takeover 2012” Tour by Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Krizz Kaliko, Mayday, Prozak and Stevie Stone. “We started Strange Music so we could make the music we wanted to make and tour like we wanted to tour. Now, to be able to make history like this is a wonderful accomplishment.” The Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour will be the only domestic tour of 2012 where fans can see Tech N9ne perform.
During the last decade, Tech N9ne has built a rock-solid fanbase by touring relentlessly. By the mid-2000s, Tech N9ne was performing in excess of 200 shows a year. His professional performances and polished routines have earned the endorsement of such platinum superstar rappers as Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Wayne, E-40 and Twista, among many others.
“A decade ago, we encountered so many obstacles when we first began touring,” says Travis O’Guin, Strange Music’s CEO and Tech’s business partner in the label. “Now we’re getting ready to set a new benchmark for rap music. It’s been a remarkable and rewarding journey.”
Tech N9ne is coming off of an incredible year. In 2011 the rapper released his album All 6’s & 7’s to much acclaim, debuting as Billboard’s No. 1 Indie, No. 1 Rap, No. 1 Hip-Hop and R&B and No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart, overall. Tech was also featured on Lil’ Wayne’s The Carter IV last summer, which sold nearly 1 million units in its first week of release.
A complete list of all 90 shows will be announced next week.
