Strange Music CEO Tech N9ne has revealed his plan to drop his eleventh solo studio album, The Storm, on September 9. Taking to Instagram, the independent powerhouse posted a photo with this caption: “I don’t fit the part for mainstream cause I’m rougher only time they wanna look like me is Halloween muthaf*cka! ( I GET IT NOW) THE STORM, 9/9/16.”
In an interview in 2015, before dropping Special Effects and The Strangulation II, Tech talked about the album, stating his disdain for the industry process as the motivation for the title. “Watch me on the next album. I’m calling it The Storm. I’m planning the next album already and I don’t even have this one out all the way. Watch me do something with Gary Clark Jr. Watch me get a song with Lana Del Rey. Watch me and Alanis Morrissette finally do it like we’ve been talking about. Watch JAY Z come through, man! I’m not stopping! I’m not stopping!” said Tech, who also revealed Chris Brown could be an additional feature in the works.
After thoroughly working with most big underground artists, over the last few years Tech has collaborated with everyone from Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, B.o.B., T-Pain to 2Chainz which has certainly strengthened his already incredible fan-base.
