I first heard him on the Gang Related soundtrack back in 97/98, but kinda lost track of him until I found The Calm Before The Storm and The Worst at a Sam Goody in Nebraska. Been checkin' for him ever since.
it was a random ass night i was drinkin moon shite one nice back in freshman year which was 6 years ago and a friend i was with was playin anghellic and i was like wtf is this shit and i didn't care too much cuz i was into that fifty cent bullshit at the time then like 2 years ago i heard tech again i was like damn this shit is fuckin crazy and ever since then i have been tech all day everyday
hahah well i herd his shit from Everredy on Alpha dog that movie with J.T waited for the credits so i could see what song it was it was night and day serched it up the same night an was hooked ever since Strange music all day all night
although ppl have asked this on threads MANY times, i just dont get tired of the story of "how did i hear of tech n9ne", lol.
i first heard tech when i saw him on the Sway & King Tech video "The Anthem", back in 1999, the video scene and the verse were just off the hook, me and my friends would listen and learn the verse by heart and rap it all the time messin around, i had never heard no stuff like that. Then i searched for him (back when downloading was first making itself known) and couldnt find anything, nor any cd's in any stores. So as time went on i began to find tracks on KAZA and Lime Wire, until ABSOLUTE POWER "slacker" & "Imma Tell" hit the radio stations, then i bought the album, found Anghellic, and looked up "The Calm Before The Storm" (wich i paid $50 for on half bay !) and "The Worst" and bought them. rest is history, first day albums are out, i bought em as well as dvd's (except MLK & Killer, i was in jail, had to wait till i came home, but i still heard them over the phone from my family !)
Everyone knows Tech N9ne's Imma Tell or Caribou Lou. I went to my first Tech concert knowing these songs. It was the strange noise tour in 08. After that night Tech hasnt came outa my top 5 favorite things to listen to! I cant wait for him to come back to the DMI.!
