Pusha T and 2Chainz recently hit up MTV’s Rap Fix an done of the topics that came up for both artists was fellow rapper Tech N9ne. Tech has been killing the game independently for years now. A feat that Chainz and King Push are well aware of and acknowledge.
“When I heard [Tech N9ne] was gonna be here, I was like, ‘Oh, man, this is it,’” Pusha T said speaking to Tech N9ne. “Man, the business, man. I feel like you’ve mastered this business of music.”
2Chainz chimed in during his interview and spoke on Tech’s rapping skills.
“That boy can rap, man,” 2 Chainz said during a different segment on the show. ”When I first did the cypher for the [BET Hip Hop Awards]…I’m like, ‘Who gon’ be in the cypher?’ I promise to God, [Ludacris] said, ‘Busta Rhymes, Tech N9ne.’ All I was thinkin’ was Luda, Busta Rhymes and this fool – they gon’ be tongue twistin’ to see who can rap the fastest. But God worked it out where he got rid of [Tech].” Tech N9ne performed in a separate cypher for the Award Show, one that included Kendrick Lamar.
Chainz also went on to speak on how profitable Tech N9ne has been over the years of grinding and putitng out quality music.
“For all you rappers that’s gettin’ some money, he just put 4 million on his warehouse,” Chainz said. The comment was followed by Sway, who said he made a mistake when he stopped being a part of Tech N9ne’s management team years ago. ”Slap yourself,” 2 Chainz said to Sway regarding this. “Stab yourself. 20 percent of that…That’s supposed to be you.”
