Now before I start I'll advise you that some of this material may offend you. I understand people idolize their favorite entertainers and a negative thought about them unthinkable. And if you can't handle it then don't read any further. You've been warned.
I figured I'd start with talking about "Sickology 101" sense I feel its where T9 started being lazy. It's a dope name, but the content doesn't suit it. Lets be completely honest, majority of the content on this album wasn't "sick" it was typical, recycled and boring. He talked about rapping good (Typical), partying and everything that goes with it (Typical), being different (Recycled), not getting mainstream invites (Recycle), and a few gems like "Dysfunctional" and "Far Away". All in all, a flat album. "But its a collabo album not a solo album dumbass!" If your thinking that keep your stupidity away from here and leave.
Next he had "K.O.D." Yes he had recycled content but I think this where he was his most creative. Too bad this would be his last burst of it.
Then he makes "Ollie Gates Mixed Plate." Now this album to me was just plain fucking stupid. Like a downgrade of "Sickology 101." Do any of you go back and listen to that album. I sure know I don't.
"Bad Season" was just a feeble attempt Tech N9ne did to get more popular. That album didn't even make his Wikipedia page. I never listen to that or listened to that. I mean I gave each track a chance but it sucked.
"All 6's and 7's" was made after that. This album to me was good at first until the beats wore off and I listened to the content. He had songs like "So Lonely" and well nothing I ever go back to listen to. What I really notice is Techs stepping towards a mainstream sound. "Killer" was a little mainstream but not enough to where I didn't like it. Then with each album he took small steps towards that mainstream feel. With the exception of "K.O.D." I don't know how it happened but it did and served me many songs of entertainment.
Then "Welcome to Strangeland" arrived. Now it should be clear that Tech N9ne slacking and rushing his songs. What's the point of many more albums but with many more faults. This was just another album with very few songs with any longevity.
"E.B.A.H." well I already know everyone wasn't pleased with this one. But "Boiling Point" seemed to turn everyone around even though it added almost nothing to Techs catalogue. One good song, maybe two tops.
Now he has "Something Else" coming out. And with the amount of time on it I'm expecting a pretty damn good album. Judging by the sampler I'm pretty disappointed. I was hoping he wouldn't go in that "All 6's and 7's" route but it would seem to be he is. His word play doesn't mean nothing to me if the content is boring.
Now I can go back to sitting on my couch, drinking my beverage, and watching re-runs of some boring show. Everything on T.V. seems to be boring in the morning. And I know this was very critical but I'm just in one of those moods.
however....life is motivation...how people react to others....how "you" react to people...as long as im living...i got motivation...for some people...artists are like a parade...they watch them go by and comment on what they think..for others, they are part of the "parade"....scenery changes, but im always marchin...either your with me or you watch me go by...u know...my attitude roughly for things in general
and in addition..( sorry and shit )....depends on the artist..some artists i wouldnt give the time of day to tell them what i think cuz in reality as long as they are making money they may not care as much as another what their music means to people...1 of the reasons i like tech.. meet him for the first time at soundset with krizz...told them their music,(strange music), helped me through some shit, and they felt what i was saying...like i feel the music, you know...felony charges...loss of a job, marital stress caused by my lack of self control...lol..military/life injuries fucking with my outlook, wanting to creep on a mother fucker and show them whats up...i fly solo cuz im unique...dont wanna and will not change who i am to kick it with anyone...so when i wanted to do dirt...felt justified in doing it...i didn't, for me and my family.....id get high...listen to some SM...focus on my craft,....some of the shit they talk about man hit me in my soul....i could relate...felt like they could to me even though they had no clue about me...it didn't matter though cuz i could feel the intensity in the lyrics and music. it motivated me...inspired me...ive always been independent...even when a government employee trying to make a positive difference....why i aint now...wouldn't conform to what the feds/state wanted...cuz it aint me...so when i write about it...some people will feel it....then the same people will criticize me if i change it up cuz im "feeling" something else. then what...i got lazy...not no heart in it..no...cuz im forever mutating and evolving as a person..with a core that changes little...so anyone can say what they want...but fact is....tech and krizz did something that other artists canceled...meeting the fans...listening to what they ( i ) had to say when they didn't have 2, hugging folks...signing shit...all cuz what...they make mad money and have 2..? no...cuz they care...i could tell when they were listening to my short story man...i know when there is real in someone and when they decide to be shallow.....non of us are perfect...but hey...
This! haha I used to love this fan base, now I seldom post on here because SM fans have become some of the WORST "Stans" In music. God forbid you voice your opinion about the lastest from strange artists if you arent praising it.
The Tech N9ne "Cult" following is by far the worst fanbase I have EVER seen, I love his Music but his fans are completely fucking retarded. If I was Tech... I would make a song telling "Fans" that you're a bunch of stupid cunts.. LOL
I somewhat agree with the Topic, but I feel that he is going harder with Lyrics, but not so much on ideas but I am waiting on what Something Else brings to the table before I fortify this theory.
i have a prediction about the new album...hold on while i look into this crystal ball..... yea...its getting clearer...NO...cant be... some people will like it..others wont...some will voice their opinion about it, they will get flamed for doing so...wow... the crystal ball never lies
boy...trust me...im quite positive my IQ is much higher than yours
Come on, don't argue about that stupid shit here. Make a different post.
PS: I always found it ironic when people argue about their IQs.
bro..i was actually just thinking about that before i saw what you typed...your right....its stupid....sometimes my "issues" override my maturity level...my bad....plus ive been out of weed...(although i just scored a bag so im good now "puff-puff") good call shane on how you called it...
ps...but for what its worth..my IQ is higher than average...part of my psych evals, etc.. :)
so...put this shit aside boys...lets enjoy some music...be thankful for what we have knowing others have it worse...come on...in a way..we all are strange family or we wouldn't be here..
"put your lighters up...get high with me, fly with me, aint no divide in us..."
You forgot to capitalize the first word at the beginning of your sentence.
