Just before the release of Tech N9ne’s KLUSTERFUK, ¡MAYDAY!’s own Gianni Cash dropped in on the Strange Music Podcast for a live interview regarding his production on KLUSTERFUK as well as ¡MAYDAY!’s Take Me To Your Leader. In case you weren’t able to tune in, here’s what you missed.
On Tech N9ne’s Welcome To Strangeland, fans got a first taste of what can happen when The Mental Giant mixes with the unique talents of ¡MAYDAY! Now, with KLUSTERFUK nearing its official release, listeners are once again bracing themselves for a one of a kind ride on the collision course between Tech N9ne and the Miami group.
Tech N9ne’s long awaited KLUSTERFUK EP will mark the first release from the Kansas City King in 2012, but more importantly, the EP will also mark the first Tech N9ne project to be entirely produced by a band. Strange Music’s resident group of Miami maniacs, ¡MAYDAY!, has taken the helm on the EP with exclusive production. With the release of “Blur” featuring ¡MAYDAY!’s Wrekonize, it became abundantly clear that Tech N9ne was once again opening the doors to a new chapter in his legacy. Much like the arrival of Everready: The Religion, could KLUSTERFUK be the catalyst to a new Tech N9ne experience?
Strange Music is kicking off 2012 right with Klusterfuk, the new EP from Tech N9ne. With production by Plex Luthor, Gianni Ca$h and Wrekonize of Mayday, along with features from Krizz Kaliko, Wrekonize and more, Klusterfuk will definitely get fans amped up for the Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour!

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.
