Tech N9ne has always been dedicated to fans, because if you follow the rapper he is not always considered mainstream. Tech was at an album signing for his new record, All 6’s and 7’s, and fans showed so much support that the rapper had to reciprocate by meeting every single person there.
The event started around 3pm, but the line was so long and filled with dedicated fans that the rapper did not stop meeting his fans until 9:30pm. The only break in the event was for 7-minutes when Tech took a dinner break.
The Strange Music head honcho spoke about the event and his opinion on greeting fans. “The line was wrapped around the block, like it always is. It’s a blessing,” Tech told MTV News.
“I stand up the whole time to greet my fans. I don’t like sitting down in between a table, so it makes it harder to stand up and greet everybody how they come, but that’s how I like doing it. The day as a whole, it was successful. The album is selling really good everywhere. I’m tired as hell, but I’m proud at the same time.”
“I mean the world to them because they know I’m inside out, I give them everything,” Tech, who is in the midst of an 82 City-tour said. “They know that I push real hard to give them what they want, musically, performance-wise, everything — I open all the way up. That’s why people call me a cult leader, because my fan base is so hard-core and so devoted to the Tech N9ne, Strange Music movement.”
Tech N9ne’s new album, All 6’s and 7’s, features guest appearances by Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes.
