Tech talked about a mainstream invasion, touring with Paul Wall, and buying his 1st Benz in cash.
I hear you’re already working on a new album. Is this like your 100th project or something?
(laughs) Yeah, something like that. I’ve been doing this for a long while now. I can’t even think of how many CDs I’ve done. This new album Killer is many steps up from anything I’ve ever done. All the producers I’m working with are brand new. And the subject matter…you know how you rap so many albums and you think like Jay-Z, what more can I say? It’s so many more things I’ve been talking about on this new album. I just did an album in July last year called Mizery Loves Kompany – the collabos album. And Everready is still selling just like MLK. Killer is gonna be a monster because the subject matter is a lot broader. I got a lot to say; I’m doing 32 songs on the album. The sampler is up on TheRealTechN9ne.com
So the tour and album money must be good. I hear you just bought a new Benz.
The funny thing about that is I always said I wasn’t gonna get me a car until I could afford the Benz I wanted. From this last tour we did I was able to pay for it in cash. It’s a wonderful feeling being independent and getting that money to buy it outright. This is rap money; it’s music money. This ain’t dope money or nothing. It’s funny because I bought it and I ain’t even got my license. I’ve been in the studio for so long I haven’t had time to go get my license. It’s just sitting in my garage waiting on me. Plus, it’s been icing in Kansas City. I didn’t want to ruin my rims and everything. When I get back from this Fire and Ice tour with Paul Wall, them I’ma get in my Benz. Read more…
