Tech N9ne Announces Huge U.S. Tour

Posted By on March 30, 2010

     The bossman for Strange Music, rapper Tech N9ne recently announced his upcoming thirty-seven day tour around the United States. Beyond Tech N9ne himself, the tour will include Strange Music artists DXnext (alum Krizz Kaliko), along with the Sacramento veteran emcee, Lynch.

     In related news, Tech N9ne recently talked about how staying on tour is really his bread and butter, helping him sell over a million copies on his own, that is without a major record label. "If you want to be the hip-hop president, you've got to get out there and politic," reasoned the rapper who won the Left Field Woodie Award from mtvU last year. Doing around 200+ shows a year, all the money they make goes back into the Strange Music label and, along with his partner, N9ne has built a $1.2 million dollar facility in Kansas City.

     "We have that core fanbase that's always going to be there, so whether we put out CDs, whether it's going to be on iTunes or whatever, our fans are always going to be there," Tech N9ne said. "A lot of these major cats don't even have that. A lot of these major cats have sold over a million copies, but can't get 1,000 people to come see them. … That ain't for us, though."
