The latest release from Tech N9ne has reached far beyond the Strange Music community as hip hop fans everywhere are tuning in to see who he will catch next. Continue reading
When Tech N9ne arrived in Tucson, he didn’t just bring fans a hip hop show, he brought them the ultimate Strange Music party. The Lost Cities Tour, which features Flawless, Jay Rock, Krizz Kaliko, and Kutt Calhoun, took over the Rialto Theatre in Tucson for a night of explosive performances. Jason Krell of DailyWildcat.com attended the spectacle and watched in awe as the hardest working man in hip hop put on a one of a kind show for his loyal fans. Reviewing the show, Jason wrote:
“It’s obvious Tech knows how to put on a show. His label, Strange Music, is overflowing with talent and his technicians — a nickname for his fans — are some of the most dedicated followers in music. What it boils down to, in the end, is that if you are just now discovering your fandom of Tech N9ne, you’re about 13 years too late to the party.”
As one of Tech’s biggest markets, Tucson has clearly earned its place inside Strangeland. Click here to read the full review.

Tech N9ne has been around more than a decade, and gone platinum without a major label. He’s been touring on and off since May in support of his last album All 6′s and 7′s, which was #4 on the Billboard Top 200. He’s on Tha Carter IV. Not exactly a lightweight.
In fact, he’s got another album, Welcome to Strangeland coming out on Nov. 8, his 40th birthday. But he still performs like a beast, and his sold-out show at The Roxy showcased his skills as a live performer.
As Tech N9ne and the rest of the Strange Music artists put on shows around the nation, the performances on all ends are impressing people.
The Silver Tongue contributor Travis Phillips published a review from the July 27th show in Atlanta, and needless to say, the author of this piece was more than impressed.
“I honestly couldn’t tell you a single song that ¡Mayday! performed,with that said, they put on a amazing show. It didn’t feel like a rock set, more like hip-hop with an amazing live band. The crowd was completely hypnotized by the insane energy, hands being thrown in the air, everyone on their feet, and yet no one was reciting a single word.”
Phillips also expresses his feelings when Tech N9ne finally stepped out onto the stage.
“So with expectations high Tech N9ne finally appears on stage. The thunderous roar of yells, applauds, screams, and even squeals were let out. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
