Surely it can’t just be me who thinks Tech N9ne is one of the most overrated rappers ever? The only attribute his rap game pertains which is good in my opinion is his flow, which even I can admit is amazing. But I wanna talk about the dude’s use of multi’s in this thread. Every time I question his writing and his usage of multi’s, the Tech fans always asks me “what part of the lyrics don’t you understand?” but it’s not even a case of understanding, it’s a case of the multi’s being so incredibly forced. People often herald ‘He’s a Mental Giant’ as ‘Multi’s 101’ so I’ll take some lyrics from that song:
Narcissistic, hard to grip it/
Dark and wicked, art’s prolific/
Mars with the stars, this is far lifted/
Lyrics, quit the bawitaba, scriptures are terrific/
Get a spitter with a bit of bitter marketed with/
For me, that is just rhyming for the sake of rhyming, “get a spitter with a bit of bitter marketed with” like, really? No matter how lenient you are with that line, you can’t take anything away from it, it’s just overkill multi’s. And I know that the concept of this track is to showcase lyrical talent, every rapper has those types of tracks. But take for example one of my fav tracks of all time ‘It Ain’t Hard to Tell’ by Nas:
It ain’t hard to tell, I excel, then prevail/
The mic is contacted, I attract clientèle/
My mic check is life or death, breathing a sniper’s breath/
I exhale the yellow smoke of buddha through righteous steps/
Deep like the Shining, sparkle like a diamond/
Sneak a Uzi on the island in my army jacket lining/
He’s not using as many multi’s but he’s actually making sense, painting a picture and the lyrics are deep as fuck, not just face-value, that’s why Nas is top 5 in many eyes and the greatest for me.
If you take an Em track that is showcasing lyrical talent like ‘Just Don’t Give a Fuck’ he’s demonstrating great multi usage but he’s actually making sense and not sacrificing subject matter for rhymes.
Anyways, let me know what you guys think, I just can’t take anyone seriously who says Tech N9ne is one of the best rappers to do it.
“Anyways, let me know what you guys think, I just can’t take anyone seriously who says Tech N9ne is one of the best rappers to do it"
Then why should anyone waste their time trying to defend Tech to you?
That’s wrong; Tech is NOT one of the most overrated rappers. I mean, the usual bit here ‘n there comes from his stans, and seriously — we all know them!
No, he isn’t that overrated. Maybe a bit, but he got undoubtedly one of the best flows there ever were, plus that I like his lyrics. I am NOT a Tech N9ne stan, and actually am just interested into his All 6’s and 7’s. What he delivered there was lyrically great, though…
Follow me, all around the planet, I run the gamut on sickology
They could never manage, we do damage wit’ no apology
Pick ‘em out the panic, a little manic ’cause I gotta be
Frantic, I’ma jam it ’cause I’m an oddity
Gobble the track up like I’m grubbin' at mama nakas
I can pop at you proper cause I’m partners with Waka Flocka
Gimme the top of hip-hop and watch ‘im make ‘em rock
With a show-stopper, chakras poppin’ off the (Worldwide Choppers)
If you anybody, you notice it
Tech is the pinnacle, not an identical soul is it
Loaded cold as the polar get wrote it quick and they quoted it
Yo it exploded the flow behold it cause when the motor spit
A-bi-de-a, bi-de-a, never to get free of the real
Better ya just neal to me or ready to get near my heals
Gimme the knock and I’mma chop, he came and he went tomorrow
But I’ma lock it down and hop in the pocket like empanadas
Fact is; Tech is a pretty good rapper. Not VERY good, but he delivers us decent and respectable stuff. If you don’t like him, don’t discuss about him or hate on him. Just listen to other stuff.
They shouldn’t waste their time trying to defend Tech in this specific area of rap because they can’t. His multi’s are forced and that’s all there is to it. I still like hearing what people have to say, though.
What do you even mean by forced?This just seems to disregard Tech’s skills.Just like fans of wrestlers like Hulk Hogan or HHH disregard the likes Rey Mysterio by calling them spot-monkeys or like fans of DBZ disregard anime like Hellsing.
If you don’t understand the song like “get a spitter with a bit of bitter marketed with"…dude you’re on rapgenius.
The question is what do know bout Tech’s stuff ???
You talk about his last album.. actually you talk about one verse in one song.. what album did you buy and listen ?
He have over 10 albums, been there since 1988
so if you judge him with his last album its like to say that Rakim is not a legend because 7Seal wasnt that good…
Man a fack flow its a big part of being an MC.. you compared Tech to NaS lyrically its true that nas is better at it but Tech KILL him at flow.. so technically in your language its 1-1
how come Tech is overrated lol ??
in witch top 5 u saw him
in witch web site they talk bout him like crazy
in witch interview people talk of him..
I always thought that Tech’s multies werent forced, some of them even go over my head.
If you wanna hear a song where he mixes multies with lyricism try Red Necro
And him being overrated is bullshit, he’s literally been rapping since the 80’s (which a lot of people don’t know) he built one of the largest followings ever with an independent label, he deserves respect
People actually discussing hip hop.
comeon people this is trollgenius, silly kids.
Not a tech Stan, but he’s one of this first rappers I got in to. Back around the time angehellics first release was goin through its bull shit. I still hear people tell me Absolute Power was his first album as they’re tryin to criticize. Anyway. Here’s just part of a verse which in my opinion is quite talented
Say hello to TechN9NE
Wanna be down with a nigga
Women get a whiff of the money
Thinking of taking it from me
They get up in the club
Giving the love
Throwing the pussy
Full of liquor and bud
Booty hopping around up in the MO
Get to looking around
Every ho wanna lick a nigga low
With niggas with dough
Get em in the sack
And try to make ‘em let it go
Be autographing bitches
In front of rapping niggas
Who think of having figures
They get to grabbing triggas
They can’t imagine villains
When they come back and get us
We get to whacking niggas
I ain’t never
Wanted no parts of this
I don’t never want to break
Another heart for this
Why the devil
Gotta make it
Why the Lord
Wanna make something that’ll kill
Something so marvelous
Also Techs flow in many opinions may not be the best because everyone thinks different. But it’s by far the most unique. And his flow often changes song to song quite dramatically. Dude is still under rated after all these years IMO
I’m really trying to stay out this tech n9ne debate but not sure how his flow is more unique than Schoolboy Q or A$ap Rocky…
I shouldn’t have said MOST unique cuz that’s not true about anyone. ONE of the most unique is a fact though in my opinion. My bad
I would agree with that more or less, tech is nice, i think all of y'all have your points.
in reality, tech is overrated probably by his followers who come with the “Goat” business, but he’s still good, not sure i agree with him “forcing” multi’s
but that’s the most I’ll say on this topic.
Not the greatest of all time. One of the most devoted of all time for sure though. One of my personal favorites but I don’t see how you could put a G.O.A.T title on any artist personally
