Biography

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 ...

Editorial Reviews

Tech N9ne delivers on his goals throughout Something Else, a rousing collection that takes listeners on an epic journey through Fire, Water and Earth sections of the album, a formatting tactic Tech N9ne also employed on his landmark Anghellic album in 2001 and his Everready [The Religion] album in 2006.
Straight Out The Gate kicks off the intense Fire section of the album. Featuring System Of A Down s Serj Tankian, the song has political and religious overtones while highlighting both Tankian and Tech N9ne's talents. Serj, he's a guy that takes chances with music and sounds and fuses them together and that's how I feel about my hip-hop music, Tech N9ne says. Our being on a song together, that's one of the biggest things that could happen. That's why I put it first on the album.
From there, Tech keeps the intensity level sky-high with B.I.T.C.H., an acronym for Breaking Into Colored Houses, a cut about his interaction with his black fans. Love 2 Dislike Me discusses the aftermath of a relationship gone sour, while Fortune Force Field explains how certain people are trying to keep Tech N9ne from enjoying all the fruits of his musical labor. Then there's I m Not A Saint, Tech N9ne s latest look at his Evil Brain Angel Heart persona.
Tech N9ne embraces such personal, evocative subject matter because it is an innate part of his artistry. The reason I opened up on this album is because throughout my career, all I ve been doing is being inside out, being an open book, he says. Since the album is called Something Else, I have to let certain things loose that I otherwise wouldn't let loose.

I enjoyed the entire album during my first listen.

Very good album, i like the plot of it, from bad to good, transcribes a good message in his lyrics, beats and rhythms are good also.

The DVD that came with this deluxe edition was also a nice addition.

Tech has really outdone himself here. I reviewed All 6's and 7's and, while I didn't think Tech could top that, he certainly has here. There is definitely a distinction between a great album and a collection of great songs. Looking back, I would consider All 6's and 7's to be a collection of great songs, but there wasn't any cohesion that held the songs together as an album. That is definitely not the case with Something Else.

The album kicks off with the best album opener that Tech has released thus far with "Straight Out The Gate" (5/5). I didn't think he'd be able to top the album opener from Killer ("Like Yeah"), but he did. System of a Down front man, Serj Tankian, lends his vocals to the chorus and the result is one of the standout tracks on the album. Then we move into B.I.T.C.H. (5/5) with a chorus assisted by T-Pain. I wasn't a huge fan of the track when it was released a few months back, mainly because I'm tired of T-Pain. This track, however, grew on me very quickly to the point where it's now one of my favorites off of this album. The next track is one of the two posse cuts from the album, "With The BS" (3.5/5). This track is a good one to crank up and bob your head to, but I'm afraid after several listens it will start to get monotonous. Then the album moves into some more serious material with "Love 2 Dislike Me" (5/5). This track was originally suppose to feature Corey Taylor, lead vocalist for Slipknot. Due to timing issues he was replaced by Evalyn Awake vocalist, Tyler Lyon. I think that Tyler Lyon does a fantastic job on this track. What makes this track really work is the switch in tempo from heavy guitar and bass to a softer beat where Liz Suwandi offers up some delicate vocals.

This album is fantastic. There are several slow songs but every song on the album has a ton of meaning behind it. This is a truly great album.

Tech N9ne is so lyrically complex and one of the most slept on rapper of my generation. Love this LP. Favourite track: Straight Out the Gate. Definitely worth the purchase. 5 stars.

Great Great Album for Tech N9ne fans, ease of download always has me coming back to find my favorites. One suggestion, we should have the ability to share music between our individual apple and android devices. That would be great.

First I'd like to say that I respect Tech tremendously. But more so for his business since and independant label "Strange Music". You could make a good argument that Tech is the most talented rapper of all time. But his body of work does not reflect that. This to me is another boring album released by Tech. I always fall victim to the hype and a few good singles and purchase his albums only to be disapointed. Really this doesn't even sound like a rap album. It's strange, Fitting name to represent his label. I really don't like Tech singing hooks. Plus the other hooks that are sung on this album aren't that great. The production is slightly below average and to be honest this CD wasn't worth the $18 I spent on it. I wish Tech would drop an album with him showcasing his rhyming ability with some amazing production. Rather than this weird singing whatever you want to call it. I'd love to hear a group album with Brotha Lynch Hung who is also currently signed to Strange music. Throw in Eminem too. Let them bring out the best in all of them. If you're looking for a quality album I'd suggest you don't listen to the die hard Tech fans who worship him and love anything he drops. I'd spend my money on Philthy Rich's new album NERNL or Tay Capone's newest album. Even Juicy J. All classic albums and worth your money. I still have hope for Tech so I suppose I will keep buying his albums and hopefully he can provide a classic one of these days. But this is no where near that.

P.S. I have given the album more of a fair chance and listened to it about 10 more times and decided it deserves 3 not 2 stars.

Just listen, will probably change your life. Don't be ignorant and judge something you don't understand before you even begin to comprehend what you're complaining about.
This album made me feel music again.
PLUS JIM MORRISON AND THE DOORS!!!!!
I mean, come on, if you're giving a dam enough to read this, you should just hurry up and buy because you're wasting valuable listening time.

why is this album so expensive?
The deluxe edition has a DVD with it, from what the Best Buy ad states. There's a regular, CD only, edition for $9.99 available too.
