Tech is on one of E-40′s new albums, but you shouldn’t just check out the album as a Tech fan. E-40 is a legend, setting records and releasing records consistently. Just released for 40 is Revenue Retrievin’: Graveyard Shift and Revenue Retrievin’: Overtime Shift. That’s right two albums. Not only did he just release these two, but two more albums prior (Revenue Retrievin’: Day Shift and Revenue Retrievin’: Night Shift) to make it four in 12 months time. Many of the track’s are produced by 40′s son Droop-E who is also an up-and-coming rapper recently featured in XXL Magazine as a new rapper with family ties in the business.
Tech makes his appearance on Revenue Retrievin’: Graveyard Shift with Marty James on the hook in the song “Fried”. The track is a banger produced by Jelly Roll. “40 Water they can’t touch us like a Vamp in holy water.” Make that a great collabo for two legends.
Check out the Pitchfork review of the Retrievin’ albums here, where Tech is quoted as “one of rap’s more under-recognized grassroots success stories.”
HipHopDx.com has premiered a brand new track from E-40′s Revenue Retrievin’: Graveyard Shift. “Fried” features Tech N9ne and Marty James over a banging synth production that booms in typical Bay area fashion.

On this exceptional collaboration, Tech teams up with fellow Kansas City musician Steven Cooper. The two rappers fly over the beat and deliver rapid fire verses. “Broken Chains” boasts the change in each rapper’s life and deals with overcoming the adversity they each faced. In typical Tech N9ne fashion, he steals the show with his sped up rhymes. There is a lot about this particular song that feels like ‘vintage’ Tech N9ne. Fans old and new are sure to feel this.
Tech N9ne was recently featured in a Bun B song called “Million Miles”. Tech rips it up (as always) on the second verse and spits about the difficulties of living the rock star life and not being able to see his kids as often as he’d like. Tech is simply sharing a piece of what it’s like to live the life of the Kansas City King, and his homie Big B has surely had his Strange influences being that Big B is currently touring with Tech’s friend and label mate Kutt Calhoun for the Strange Noize Tour.
What do you think of the “Million Miles” song?
Tech N9ne is featured in The Kottonmouth Kings’ new single “Party Monsters” from their new album Long Live The Kings. “Party monsters, a special guest has just arrived! Please direct your attention to the red carpet; here comes none other than the most sinister monster of them all, Tech N9ne!” Tech spits the second verse over the beat’s restless synth-line that perfectly conveys the non-stop nature of the song’s party-all-the-time subject matter. This song is definitely a banger that encourages excess, debauchery, and the all-night clowning around that has become synonymous with The Kottomouth Kings.
