Album Review

Building on the pop and polish of his 2011 release All 6's and 7's, this 2013 effort from Tech N9ne finds the angry and angsty rapper bringing back some of the horror show rap of his early days, which is good, because now his nightmares are not only vivid, but incredibly well-funded. Tortured souls looking to enter the ring (or pit) couldn't ask for a more epic entrance theme than "Straight Out the Gate," which throws a children's choir, System of a Down's Serj Tankian, and an orchestra into a rap-rock mix that would be endorsed by Zeus. Here and elsewhere, Tech tears down his critics when any Internet search box will reveal his reviews have been generally quite good in recent years, but Something Else overcomes these moments with an attitude that the whole world should submit to the rapper's Strange Music empire, and he's going to keep stomping and storming until even Grandma is a fan. Joining the club feels triumphant during these moments, while, believe it or not, "Bitch" offers a more layered argument that Tech is the real deal, with T-Pain and touchy racial issues all being skillfully juggled by a man who once seemed strictly juggaloo. "Fragile" ups the game artistically with jazz club ambience and the great Kendrick Lamar as guest star, and right before "My Haiku - Burn the World" brings on the Strange Music family with longtime friend Krizz Kaliko in tow, Tech unleashes a kinetic bit of Death Grips-like punk-rap that's clever as all hell. Late in the game, there's the true pop-rap uplift of "Believe" and the weird, wonderful mash-up "Strange 2013," where Tech meets the remaining members of the Doors and a Jim Morrison sample. Big and bold the whole way through and with nary a stumble, Something Else is another triumph from Tech. [A CD/DVD version was also released.]

Awwww yeeeee!!

So dope (I wanna)... Listen to the rest of the album :)

Dwamn!

So far every song that's been released has been perfect so I think this might be the album of the year. Mac, Kanye, Cole, Wale, no one. It may be tied up between Something Else and Magna Carta but we'll see

#1 in the GAME!!!

Great thing about Tech is he ALWAYS comes with new material, new lyrics, new beats... And hes been doin this for 2 decades and keeps getting better... Aging like a fine wine!!!

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like many underground rappers in the Midwest, Tech N9ne specialized in bizarre hardcore rap and stood as one of the few recognized rappers based in Kansas City when he debuted in the late '90s. He made the major-label jump with Anghellic (2001), which JCOR Entertainment released with the backing of Interscope Records. The album didn't find a large audience, though, and Tech N9ne returned to the underground and prepared his next album, Absolute Power (2002). A year later Tech N9ne's new label, Strange...
