Tech N9ne – Planet Review

This release shows that while Rap may be a younger mans game, some titans work ethic will prevail. Tech N9ne has put the work in for a lot of years and with his twentieth release, returns to some of the best rhyming of his life.

The production is great with a lot of energy and perfect atmosphere where needed. Each song has a beat that responds well to the overall message being sent by the artists and helps build a cohesive listen. This selection of backings lends itself to a variety of content that stops the release becoming stale.

The lyricism is, unsurprisingly, sharp as ever. Tech N9ne doesn’t miss a trick and fills this project with clever lines and punches that show he has worked hard on his craft which has made him the number one independent rapper in the world. It is great to see him living up to that title.

The features all do a great job of helping to flesh this out and make it stand tall. Every one of them shows their particular skill sets and does the job that helps build the track they are on as well as keeping a high level of chemistry. A few more singers could have brought that dimension more to the foreground but there is still a good balance of guests overall.

In conclusion, this is a great album. Sure there are a few missteps, but no artist is perfect and Tech N9ne is as close as any other rapper when it comes to technical ability as well as core followings.

Tech N9ne Collabos – Dominion Review

This album is fantastic as it shows that every member of Strange Music is not only talented, but works extremely well with the other members. Tech N9ne has built a strong house and will only continue to be a powerhouse in the rap game.

The production is incredible with a huge range of different beats to allow for an extremely diverse set of tracks. The backings each create the perfect atmosphere for the type of song that they are as well as blending together with a top level of cohesion. There are no problems with the production here and Strange Music should continue with this mentality.

The lyricism is amazing with every artist showing that they are as talented as their leader. Tech leads the way with plenty of examples of top quality wordplay and the rest of his troops fall in line with their own stunning displays. Each artist here does a really magnificent job here and proves that Strange music makes strong decisions about who they sign.

Overall, with every artist here being a guest and doing a great job, this release may be a bit of a long slog to the end, but the end result stays fresh with the switching artists making things interesting. The house that Tech N9ne built is a strong one and only continues to get stronger.

Tech N9NE – The Storm Review

This is a lengthy release from Tech, but each song is entertaining. They might not all work as a full album listen through, but individually, these are good songs.

The production is great with plenty of energy keeping the album buzzing. Each beat makes a great atmosphere for the type of song which helps keep the listener interested. Maybe a few more slow tracks could give more of a balanced feel, but it may not fit with Tech’s particular style.

The lyricism is fantastic with some of the best wordplay this year. Tech bends words to his will as he crafts bar full of multi-syllable schemes as well as every other lyrical device. His flow may be a little fast for everyone, but it makes very entertaining tracks.

The features are good as they help keep tracks fresh considering how long this project is. Each puts in a great effort that shows the chemistry that the Strange Music roster has with each other. There is a good balance of rap and singing, but a few more artists who are singers could give a little more depth.

Overall, this is a good release from Tech N9NE but it is not as cohesive as his previous albums. While he does more than good work on this, a bit more direction could ave stream lined this a bit more.

Nike Basketball Lebron Soldier Nine Shoe Review

This shoe is fantastically comfortable and has plenty of features to secure your foot inside the shoe. The use of the technologies is great with a wider audiance due to the Flyease technology.

Flyease is the latest development due to a message recieved from a young person with physical limitations. He asked for a shoe that was easierr to get on and off and that would be secure. Nike have then opened the sides up more on the shoe and added additional foot straps so that the foot is easier to get into and out of the shoe, while the straps mean you can tighten different parts of the shoe to your perfect level of comfort.

The outline design is similar to the previous model, minus the strapping, but with a small hyperposite like shape up the outside for additional stability. The toe box is pretty fluid allowing for plenty of flexibility but be careful if you like to keep your shoes pristine as the sheen across the front will flake off easily if you catch it on anything.

The laces help lockdown the mid section of the shoe and the straps hold down the rest. The outsole has good traction and helps propel the wearer forward.

Overall, this is a great shoe for all to wear, but is especially relevant to those who may find your typical shoe difficult to wear. Well done to Nike for expanding thier audiance.

Tech N9ne – Special Effects Review

This album is filled with raw and total emotion. With feelings from aggression to sadness to happiness channeled into songs, Tech has made an album that can be relatable and enjoyed by most of the Hip Hop audiance.

The production is excellent. The use of instruments rather than random sounds makes for a slightly more enjoyable listen as well as smoother transitions between songs. Each beat perfectly reflects the atmosphere of each track and contains a lot of influences from other genres, punk for example, to make the project additionally cohesive. The skits in between the tracks, while showing a more human side of Tech N9ne, are quite frequent at the beginning and these could have been better spread out a bit more but they are still enjoyable.

The lyricism is definately present and is fantastic. Tech N9ne has always had some lyrical ability but he has definately developed them through his last few projects. On this, he weaves great multi syllable rhymes that suck in the listener, making them wonder when they will finish. He may need to work on a couple other rap techniques as fall backs, but he is definately doing a great job bringing lyricism to the audiance.

The features all do a great job and all have great verses. With guests ranging from his own label to some of Hip Hops elite, Tech has assembled a team here that would make a lot of other rappers extremely jealous. He even has some features that aren’t from a Hip Hop background to great effect.

Overall, this is a great project that has songs for pretty much anyone who enjoys Hip Hop. Tech N9ne has shown why he is an independent powerhouse in the rap game and that intends to stay there.
