Tech N9ne's Bad Season is coming earlier than expected. XXLMag.com and Tech were initially going to release the Kansas City, Missouri rapper’s new mixtape, Bad Season, on Christmas day, but due to an alarming demand from fans, we will now be offering the disc, two days early, on Thursday, December 23.

Hosted by DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Scream, Bad Season will feature 15 brand new tracks. All of Tech’s Strange Music family including, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and his latest signee, 2010 XXL freshman Jay Rock, will share mic time with the independent star, while Dr. Dre, Travis Barker and Cookin Soul all also put in work behind the boards.
