Tech N9ne Announces 90-Show Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour
Tech N9ne is prepping to embark on what will be the longest tour in rap history, according to a press release, and XXLMag.com has the exclusive details first.
Tech, along with Machine Gun Kelly, Krizz Kaliko, Mayday, Prozak and Stevie Stone are slated to go on the Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour, which will kick off in March and include 90 shows in 99 days with stops in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Las Vegas. The Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour will be the only domestic trek of 2012 where fans can see Tech N9ne perform.
“I started planting the seeds for this music thing to expand more than 10 years ago and to see it be recognized globally like this is a beautiful thing,” Tech Nina said via a statement. “We started Strange Music so we could make the music we wanted to make and tour like we wanted to tour. Now, to be able to make history like this is a wonderful accomplishment.”
Tech N9ne is already coming off an amazing year. In 2011, the spitter released his album, All 6’s & 7’s, which debuted on the Billboard Hip-Hop and R&B chart at No. 1 and No. 4 on the Top 200 album tally. Tech was also featured on Lil Wayne’s The Carter IV last summer, which sold nearly 1 million units in its first week of release.
