Happy Birthday, Tech N9ne!


Today, Nov. 8, is the 45th birthday of rapper Tech N9ne! Since releasing his debut, The Calm Before The Storm, in 1999, Tech has been one of the most successful underground rappers of all-time, selling over one million albums independently without the help of a major label. In 2013, he made headlines when he was named to the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list at No. 18, a landmark for an independent artist. Currently, Tech is prepping fans for his latest album, The Storm, which is due out in stores Dec. 2. With features from Problem, Logic and of course his Strange Music cohorts, Tech has divided the upcoming LP into three parts showing off three different sides to his personality.
