Pick of the Day: Tech N9ne at Exit/In



Tech N9ne
When: Tue., Aug. 2, 7 p.m.
Where: Exit/In

Tech N9ne would love for us to refer to his tour as the “All 6’s and 7’s Tour,” after his recently released ninth album, but we all know what it really is: “Road to the Gathering of the Juggalos.” Before you judge the Kansas City chopper too harshly though, know this: Not only is Tech part of the non-clown contingent of excellent hip-hop artists performing at that annual subcultural horror show alongside Busta Rhymes and others, he’s seemingly jettisoned his horrorcore rap roots and, in turn, his strongest connection to that oft-lamented scene.

Now that Odd Future has the whole “rapping about cannibalism” thing sewn up, Tech is free to shift his machine gun-fast delivery away from demons and onto more important endeavors like his quest to become the greatest in the world. If that means we get more songs like “Worldwide Choppers,” a blistering single featuring Busta and Yelawolf, we’re all ears.
