The vamp is near

from Tech N9ne (Ft. Serj Tankian) – Straight Out the Gate Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Tech refers to himself as a vampire because of his longevity in the rap game. While other rappers might release a couple of albums but then fall out of relevance, Tech has had a pretty consistent growth with his dedicated fan base, called Technicians, due to having one of the most consistent discographies in hip-hop.

Also Tech uses the vampire-metaphore to describe his sexual skills on Wrekonize’s “Freak”:

Hella pale like Twilight, had to get her up
Into my room and give her my bite

He may also referring to his ego and everlasting part in the scene- see his song Alucard.
