Tech N9ne Performs “No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song)” for DJ Whoo Kid’s ‘In the DJ Booth’ Series
Tech N9ne is giving fans a preview of what's to come from his new album, Planet. On Thursday (March 1), the Kansas City, Mo. rapper premieres the brash "No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song)" via DJ Whoo Kid's In the DJ Booth series.
The raw "No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song)" visual is directed by Dan The Man, who executed the concept and has worked with the likes of 50 Cent and Kanye West in the past. The psychedelic video features close-ups of the 46-year-old MC rapping his audacious lyrics, as the visual panels to floral clips of kids moshing at concerts through various backdrops.
Whoo Kid's new series began on Instagram with artists such as G-Eazy and Tony Yayo, but the DJ knew it could evolve into something bigger on another platform.
"I just wanted to make a cool concept for artists to promote their shit, instead of just the usual boring generic videos," DJ Whoo Kid tells XXL. "If you already listen to my show on Shade 45 you know we're always wildin' out and doing crazy shit, so this just adds to that. POW!"
The premiere comes as the start of a weekly series, In the DJ Booth, in support of Whoo Kid's Sirius XM Shade 45 show, which airs every Saturday from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. EST and Sundays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. EST.
"No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song)," which will appear on Tech's 20th studio album, Planet, features Machine Gun Kelly and Y2. The 19-track project is releasing Friday (March 2), ahead of Tech departing on tour in April.
