Tech N9ne has set a standard for himself when it comes to his music videos. For "Fear," which is a joint off his recently released compilation Strangeulation, Tech gets assistance from Mackenzie O’Guin to paint a picture of the struggles of losing his mother, which he explains below.

On November 27th, 2013, I recorded “Fear”, one of the most emotional songs of my entire career. The Strange Music video team shot the music video on April 7th, 2014, days before I left for my tour. In the course of waiting for the release, my greatest fear happened on June 6th, 2014 and I lost my angel – my mother, Maudie Sue Yates Khalifah.

It’s important for my fans to know that this is the most personal music video of my career and I never could have imagined what it would mean to me today. This is the final version of “Fear”, for my fans worldwide.

Thank you to everyone for your love and support.
