VIDEO: Tech N9ne Wants His Artists To Surpass His Success; Speaks On His Involvement With The Business Of Strange Music


Not only has Tech N9ne entered the history books for his record-setting tour earlier this year and sold nearly 1.5 million copies collectively of his 13 independently-released solo records, he is also one-half of the brain trust that has seen his Strange Music Inc. imprint evolve and succeed for almost a decade and a half.

Founded in 1999 by Aaron “Tech N9ne” Yates and his business partner and friend Travis O’Guin, Strange Music now houses over 10 acts on their roster which include Krizz Kaliko, Jay Rock, Brotha Lynch Hung, ¡Mayday!, Stevie Stone, Prozak, Kutt Kalhoun, Ces Cru, Big Scoob, and, of course, Tech himself.

In an exclusive sit-down with AllHipHop.com, Tech N9ne, who most recently shared his desire to work with the likes of Nas, Rick Ross and Eminem on his fourteenth solo studio album, E.B.A.H., spoke on the his actual level of involvement in the business side of Strange Music, his process for discovering new talent, and wanting to see every artist he signs surpass the success he has had throughout his own career.

    Tech’s in a class of his own, his hustle is unmatched, Lil’ Wayne’s biggest contribution to hip-hop culture since The Carter 3 was mentioning Tech’s name in that jail interview, he’s been a problem since the beginning but Wayne’s mainstream ass got the masses to pay attention.
