Strange Music proudly presents this exclusive clip of Tech N9ne performing in the city that started it all: Kansas City, Missouri. Along with Krizz Kaliko and Kutt Calhoun, Tech N9ne performs a dramatic set for his adoring fans at the Uptown Theater. Tech enters the stage, waiting to be disrobed by two scantily clad women before launching into “Like Yeah” from Killer. Tech then does his “Stamina” verse before pumping up the crowd with the song that has been the riot maker before “Riot Maker”: “Einstein”. After the track is over we get to see Kutt Calhoun break it down on stage by getting his walk on and flashing some funky dance moves. Watch below for another exclusive video from Strange Music.
Ah, that psycho you know and love. Remember your introduction to Tech N9ne? Was it around Anghellic or Absolute Power? Did you ask yourself: “Who the hell is this guy with the insane haircut ripping the microphone to pieces?” Here’s a vintage reel we put together featuring clips of Tech N9ne’s Wicked Wonka Tour performance at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Krizz Kaliko and Kutt Calhoun join Tech as they all entertain a massive crowd of Juggaloes and Juggalettes. Notable are the costume changes and early-day theatrics of the performance–throughout the reel, Tech raps in a priest’s robe, his signature red Dickies outfit, and a Kansas City Chiefs “9″ jersey. Tech runs through his early-Strange classics: “Stamina”, “Industry Is Punks”, “Sinister Tech”, “Einstein”, “Psycho Bitch”, “This Ring”, “Imma Tell”, and “It’s Alive”. Kutt Calhoun makes his stage-presence known by getting his walk on during “Einstein” and diving face-first into the crowd!
Here’s a clip of some “vintage” Tech performing his classic “Psycho Bitch” from Anghellic. The clip also features a verse from Liquid Assassin of Grave Plott throwing in his own two cents with a verse dedicated to psychotic females. It’s easy to see how Tech became hip hop president: he set the bar high early on for live performances and hasn’t fallen below it once.
At The Independent Grind Tour’s stop in Fresno, California, one fan was able to capture the action from the very front, resulting in this remarkable short clip of Tech N9ne and Kutt Calhoun. The video opens up with Tech N9ne doing his standard “Stamina“. With the video being shot from so close to the stage, the result is nothing short of breathtaking. Tech then launches into “Too Much” and at 1:32, introduces Kutt Calhoun. Kutt launches into his verse with the ferocity you expect from a Strange Music performer but mixes it with the sly ghetto swagger that has become synonymous with the Bunk Rock King.
During his time in New York while he handled various business dealings and other things on his to-do list (including a visit to Riker’s Island to meet with Lil Wayne and talks with MTV), Tech N9ne stopped by the offices of XXL Magazine to do a live UStream broadcast for their weekly “Spotlight” show. As usual nothing could contain the over-brimming energy of Tech: once you get him going, he’s not going to stop. An interesting and little-known tidbit is dropped near the beginning as Tech broke down the origin of Caribou Lou. Tech went on to give props to XXL for their six-page spread in their July issue, citing that eversince the article was published, his name has started to spread out into the mainstream, putting a “face to the name” of Tech N9ne. The interview goes on as tech candidly discusses various topics: the talent pool in Kansas City, his plans for All 6s and 7s, his favorite rappers and movie, and the breakdown of Strange Music’s success. Krizz Kaliko joined the conversation midway to add his two cents to whatever the conversation turned into and to promote his upcoming Shock Treatment release. Continue reading
