Tech N9ne Announces ‘All 6’s and 7’s’ Album and Tour
Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne has a fan base whose devotion eclipses his relative mainstream anonymity. But by the looks of the tracklist on his new album, 'All 6's and 7's,' his fellow rap peers clearly recognize the Killa Clown's talents while fans in the know will see his musical exploits first hand thanks to a nationwide tour he is embarking on.
'All 6's and 7's,' the prolific rapper's 12th album and the follow-up to 2009's 'K.O.D.,' will be released on June 7 via his own Strange Music label. The talent the rap veteran has assembled is A-list: Snoop Dogg, B.o.B., E-40, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Yelawolf, T-Pain and Lil Wayne (who Tech said was shocked he was aware of his exploits), as well as Cali hip-hop up-and-comers Jay Rock (a Strange Music artist) and Kendrick Lamar.
Tech's All 6's and 7's -- The Tour kicks off May 10 in Montreal, Canada. This international leg is being denoted as the Canuck the Industry Canadian tour and includes 15 shows before its last in Chilliwack, BC on May 25. The very next day's date in Seattle, Wash. will commence the domestic portion of the All 6's and 7's -- The Tour, whose final tour stop won't be until August 6 in Sauget, Ill
When all is said and done, Tech's tour will have totaled a sure to be exhausting 82 dates in 85 days. Strange Music's roster of artists including Jay Rock, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Big Scoob, as well as recent additions Stevie Stone and ¡Mayday! will join Tech on the road. Special guests culled from the list of features on the 'All 6's and 7's' are expected to show occasionally too.
"We will not rest until the whole world knows our story," said Tech in a statement.
Expect a whole lot of storytelling in the next few months.
