  • Tarek

    This will be Tech N9ne’s first mix tape ever in his life! and it will define the standard and bar for mixtapes for every artist out in the game right now. Just watch

    • DJBayview

      actually, Mizery Loves Kompany was a mixtape, as was Killer, as was Sickology. If you don’t know what you are talking about, don’t speak.

      • calinative

        Killer wasnt a mixtape it was a full double album. MLK, sicology, and ollie gates were her idea of “mixtapes.” If you don’t know what you are talking about, don’t speak

      • Thatguyeo

        Weren’t they just COLABS with different artist? Mixtapes are just for promotional use only. it says it on most that ive seen.

      • Rickey

        tech n9ne has never done a mixtape idiot -__- sickology, mlk, killer.. all albums. tech’s had 3 collabo albums but in no way are they mixtapes.

        • Techn9cian

          ACTUALLY they were Mixtapes Tech just called them collabos albums. . .He never liked the idea too call it a “Mixtape” . . . he never wanted to do a mixtape unless someone invited him. . . MLK and Sickology were collabos as was GMP but Killer was an album. . . his collabos albums will say it on the cover.

          • Will

            Actually they weren’t mixtapes Tech N9ne said himself he has never done a mixtape before

        • http://www.facebook.com/christsfollower Dustin

          well actually, he came out with the mixplate mixtape. Soo.. If you think about it, he has. I also believe MLK were collabos’s so in a sense it’s kinda like a mixtape. But they didn’t mix other people’s shit in.

          • Shado the icecream ninja

            “Actually” he even said himself on streetteam blog GMP was not called a mixTAPE its called GATES MIX PLATE COLLABOS. Just a friendly fyi

      • Stamina

        All Of Those Were Collaboration Cds! Wow I didnt know people were so dumb that they didnt know what a mixtape was! This is techs first mixtape!

        • Alyssa

          I cant wait! Great gift for everyone!!

        • RECK

          Its GREAT to see Tech N9ne gettin recognition from a DJ as commercial as Whoo Kid.

          EVERYTHING TECH puts out is TOP NOTCH A1, so expect nothing less from this mixtape. Much respect for releasing it for the fans FREE on x-mas day.

          • Tecca Nina

            Whoo Kid aint the only commercial artist that’s given him recognition. Fat Joe did it just last month

      • therealSykosis

        Killer was an album. MLK, Sickology 101 and Gates Mixed Plate were self proclaimed (by Tech) Collabo albums.
        He himself announced that this is his first mixtape.
        How about you take your own advice next time, and dont speak

      • Tecca Nina

        Mizery Loves Kompany,Killer,Sickology are not mixtapes technical,bcos the beats are original.and the duration is longer than mixtapes

        • http://www.reverbnation.com/s6xx Mr. BeatGameDope

          well said…..

      • riddikulouz

        shits gonna beee sick…and just so you know from another source you are a complete idiot if you think those ALBUMS were mixtapes… like others said he said himself this is his first mixtape and those were collaberation cd’s… the bay area was known for putting them out since way back and are in no way mixtapes. I am also an artist myself and am working on my(guesswhat) 3rd MIXTAPE…a mixtape is usually not sold due to copyright laws, and are mostly if not completely numerous beats that have already been used by other artists… you made yourself look completely idiotic right there dj… so please learn ur shit man. you look like a dam fool

      • STREET

        WELL IF THOSE ALBUMS WERE MIXTAPES WHY WASNT THEY FREE!!!!!!!? I PAID 20$ FOR ALL THEM CDS SO THIS IS TECHNICALLY HIS FIRST FREE MIXTAPE NIGGA!!

      • “RT”

        ur stupid as fuck..tose were not mixtapes..those were collab albums u ignorant ass…U dnt speak dumbass

      • TechN9nical

        Actually bud, tech n9ne sais in many interviews that this will be his first mixtape. just youtube some of his interviews, he sais the others are like mixtapes but aren’t really. so since you don’t know what your talking about, don’t speak.

      • Kiinglos

    @DJbayview: Those were not mixtapes, they were collaboration CD’s. Tech has said himself in interviews as has DJ whoo kid that this will be his first mixtape ever. I am a massive tech n9ne fan and I keep up with him on a daily basis and I have since about 2003. So to echo your comment: “If you don’t know what you are talking about, don’t speak”

  • Brian McG

    Not gonna lie. Kinda disappointed in the cover but definitely looking forward to the music. Hopefully there will be some nice features. I know Whoo Kid was saying Snoop was gonna be on it and he was trying to get Banks on it.

  • macaframalama

    PEACE N RESPECT STRANGERS

  • theveyon

    straaaaaaaannge!!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/technizzle Aaron Ross

    OOooooooooooookkkkaaaayyy. Enough, this IS his first mixtape. I can’t stand any fake G-Unit crap, but oh well. But yeah, Sickology 101, Misery Loves Kompany, and The Gates Mixed Plate were all collabos (collaborations), which means albums with Tech N9ne collaborating more often then on the other albums. But in no way are they mixtapes. And I don’t know how these people ended up throwing Killer in there. Killer wasn’t even a collabo album. Killer’s a regular 2 disc studio album. Bad Season is his first official mixtape. Can’t wait for it to come out.

  • Rob

    TECHHHHH N99NNNEEEEEEE!!
