He'll always be underground. I don't mean he'll only be doing music with underground artists, i mean that wat seperates him from being like mainstream artists is he's not rapping about cars, clothes, or jewelry. Like he said "Tech n9ne isnt going mainstream, mainstream is going tech n9ne" meaning just because mainstream artists are wanting to work with him, doesnt mean he's changing how he feels.
he'll never go mainstream cause on every album he'll wanna do a song like it was an accident or a collab with brotha lynch and lynch will be like "nigga nuts and guts" and thats not mainstream.. he'll do shit wit wayne and some mainstream niggas but he'll still be underground. i spent the first 18 1/2 years of my life in kc and im out in new england now for bout since nov 09 and i always ask ppl if they know who tech n9ne is.. and a lotta ppl say no.. so he's never gonna be a household name. which is how i think he wants it.. cause he loves his fans and still wants to be able to do meet and greets and sighn autographs and go to a city and not be recognized and mobbed.. he'll get bigger.. just not to big.. and he wont sell out.
