“The beats sound nothing like anything you’ve ever heard me on. The features that I’m going for are something you would never imagine. All I can say about it now is that it’s a very human album. What I mean by that is that it’s contradictory. On one song I say, ‘The saint is ours’, like we’re in the saint’s corner and then I have another song called ‘I’m Not A Saint’. It’s so beautiful because the King, the Clown, and the G are still present on this album.
There’s no apologies in what I’m saying. I don’t mind that it contradicts itself because that’s what people do. The album is everywhere. It feels like it’s Hell, Purgatory and Heaven all over again. I’m telling stories that I’ve never told – that I was afraid to tell on some songs. It’s super personal and I’ve got a big chip on my shoulder again. It’s always been there, but it’s getting bigger having to prove to fans and critics that we ain’t goin’ nowhere.” -Tech N9ne from SM blog 2/8/13
"Tech was literally dancing in his seat with excitement about the new album and some of the featured artists on it. He couldn’t say who they were, but he did explain that the album will be broken up into three distinct sections — Fire, Water and Earth.
Fire, Tech said, will have darker tracks, but the CD will finish with a heavenly theme in the Earth portion.
“I’ve got some heavenly ‘We Are The World’ shit on this album, swear to God,” Tech said.
As for Water, Tech said he hasn’t quite decided, but possible themes might be partying or confusion." -DailyWIldCat.com 3/29/13
This has to confirm WWC2.
Here we go. Official word.

I was going to pit it in confirmed and then I thought what if it's for Yas's album. I'll put it in confirmed.
I want to hear THE DOORS track soooooo bad.
I think the meaning of a chopper has been lost on ppl lol.....Joe Budden and Crooked I?...ya they flow they can be sick...but there NOT CHOPPERS...come on ppl lol. I dont even know why tech thinks daddy yankee should be on wwc2?....he chops? wtf.....the point of being a chopper is rapping fast and CLEARLY....
I don't think I want a WWC2, but i think Daddy Yankee, Sno, and Luda would be badass on it. As well as Slaughterhouse. I'm a big fan and I know Crooked I and Joe Budden could do it at least. But, I don't think I wanna hear a WWC 2. WWC was a finale. Strangeland Choppers would be badass and I've thought about it for a while and still seems like a good idea to me. You'd get Tech, Krizz, Wrek, and Rittz as the longer verses, and probably Bernz, Ubi, and Godemis, as shorter ones, and then maybe Kutt and Prozak as a few lines. Not to leave out the others, but we've heard these guys do it or go close to it. And then, sure, get Irv and JL on it too. They for sure can fit on the track.
ok what qualifies to be a chopper?
"I gotta tell you guys something thats killing me but I'm not supposed to say these things but I need to talk to my fans on some real shit! My album cover for something else is making people who wanted to help push the album, back out cause the art is too extreme for them so, They suggested me change it to something more subtle and I feel the art so deeply that I cant and will not no matter what and, They say that if me and trav go forward with the album art they want no parts of it and they also feel that major buyers will feel the same! Its actually the deluxe version album art and personally I cant change what and how I feel in my heart! But its super frustrating cause I, Wanna give my fans their money's worth and I really don't think it is that bad to where it will scare folks away like they're saying! Its like take your strange off trav and tech and you will recieve unlimited amounts of money but that aint how we built this shit! They saying that black folks will surely shun me again and parents will not buy it for children due to my so called extreme art! It hurts! Im sorry I'm not normal for the folks who have to work my album but this is me and I WONT change that for no amount! Push with me you guys!" -Tech N9ne via Twitter
This looks like he may loose some features maybe?

I'm just interested on how "bad" it is.
Kanye also had a pretty different idea for an album cover that ended up switching for his last release. And the stores made him change it or they wouldn't put it on shelves so from this I'm assuming Tech's isn't much different.
