With his new album Something Else slated drop in just eight days, Tech N9ne is hitting the press circuit hard. Fittingly, today Hard Knock TV dropped the third part of their in-depth interview series with the Kansas City native, and with part 4 coming out on Wednesday, XXL wanted to catch you up on what you might've missed so far.

In Part 1, which you can watch above, Tech touches on wearing face paint, responding to critics and his thoughts on Nas and Kendrick Lamar. Meanwhile, in parts 2 and 3 (below), Tech discusses his love for System Of A Down and Bay Area legend Mac Dre. Something Else coming soon.
