since tech is by far the most known underground rapper alive and is all about his fans and not plays and shit, would you still respect him if he were to go big? Or if he just left all us die hard fans that have been here since Calm Before the Storm?
Tech will always make music that he likes/feels and he will do it the way he wants. the only thing thats gona make him "mainstream" is raidio play and bein seen one tv and that would be a good thing so how can you hate on him for that.
Fuck ya, dude's gonna do wat he gotta do to get paid, as long as he don't turn into some pussy ass rapper buyin his rhymes instead of writng them, then he still gonna be the same Killa Klown Everybody listen to
id love it, i dont think he would change, i think he would just be discovered and loved for what he's been doing all along. he desrves it by far...the only set back i see as a hardcore fan is that his shows would probably be held in much larger venues wich takes away that close, in your face exciting small venue shows were all use to and love. screw a front row ticket, smash your way to the front, lol!!
Hell no! I've never heard ANYTHING like him. Hez been my fav for a more than a couple yearz now...artist fade away sumtimez...but tech...he juz keepz gettin better! If he haz az much love for hiz fanz that were with him since the begining...itz juz unfair wen hiz fanz say HEZ SELLING OUT. Thatz bull shyt. We shuld stick with him even if he getz big. Hez the shyt...and alwayz will be.
Even if tech could get mainstream i dont think he would.
he knows his fans would be pissed.
hes underground and in all his music he disses on the industry and says he is the underground king
i think he should keep that label.
you dont have to be mainstream to be known world wide i mean look at ICP, there are so many juggalos out there and icp didnt go mainstream!
yeah, but at the same time he knows that it would help him, fame wise, money wise, recognition by other mc's, who act like they dont know who he is. he wants it, i mean look at his song "the rain" off of "EverReady" and the the part in the song "One Good Time" off of "Killer" where he said "...maybe if it would win me a grammy maybe...", i mean, you gotta sell alotta records to win a grammy or have a number one single for so long. I think deep down he wants the fame, recognition and money that the mainstream scene brings, outside of that, he will never change his image the way the "industry" wants, he will be excepted for who he is and thats that.
I would still respect him for all that he does no matter if its underground or mainstream. The last thing tech would do is forget about all the fans that made him so successful. I think that anything he can do to get his voice and diverse music that all people enjoy no matter there race or religion out there for the wold to hear is a great thing...!!!TECHN9NE!!!
