ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Tech N9ne (Part 1)

One of Hip Hop's hardest working emcees, Tech N9ne, reps for Kansas City, Missouri. In fact, he basically put the city on the map. As the co-founder of Strange Music, he has become one of the most successful independent artists of all time. He's done it his way since he started, ,even when other people wouldn't take notice. They're noticing now.

He's built his name and fanbase on the strength of his high octane stage shows, which will turn any non believer into a walking disciple. Last year alone, Tech was the third highest grossing urban touring act in the country, behind 2 guys by the name of Jay-Z and Kanye West. He's official. So it's only right that he was named Hip Hop Official's Artist of the Week.

In Part 1 of this 2 part segment, Tech talks about his upcoming collabo album, called Sickology 101, which coincidentally hits stores tomorrow. He also gives you some insight to his next solo album, K.O.D. which will drop October 27th. If you've never seen Tech live before, do yourself a favor a catch him on the 2009 Rock The Bells tour this summer. HHO will be there. Will you? Peep the interview, then cop a free download from Tech's album that drops tomorrow.
