“Unfortunately, it’s true. We lost a legend and a pioneer of Philadelphia rap and war,” he told XXL after initially reporting the news on Facebook. “Unfortunately we do not fully understand the cause of death. We pray that it was natural causes. There were no signs of injury in his body.”
Fans tweeted their relief after learning it wasn’t Tech N9ne, the 47-year-old Missouri native best known for his 2015 single “Hood Go Crazy” (featuring 2 Chainz & B.o.B ) and “Speedom” (feat. Eminem & Krizz Kaliko). Both singles topped Billboard’s hip-hop digital singles sales charts.

Rip Tech 9 … one of the most interesting battle rappers. Condolences to his family and friends. God bless his soul.- “THE DRUG WAVE” IS HAPPENING NOW (@LupeFiasco) March 25, 2019Tech N9ne answers the phone. He’s somewhere in Canada, time zones, traveling with a fitness trainer named Jaws.
It doesn’t breathe that much. How could he? The fast-paced rapper, who has collaborated with everyone from Red Man to Rob Zombie, has world-famous breath control. N9ne admits that he took a trip in July and his belly grew, so he’s trying to burn it off. Fortunately for him, he says, it works.
Tech N9ne Of Strange Music Is His Fans Psychiatrist
Jaws gives N9ne, Stevie Stone and Jeffrey “Frizz”, two other artists on the Strange Music Canadian tour, the physical challenges they complete each day. Rapper Krizz Kalliko, who is also on tour, isn’t working out because he’s on a low-carb Keto diet and doesn’t have the energy to train, says N9ne.
We’re talking today, October 13, ahead of the premiere of his latest album at Red Rocks. The new record is a collaboration between Strange Music artists, called Strange Reign, the follow-up to the Dominion label album.
After finishing Dominion, “The synergy between all of our artists was so amazing that we just kept recording music,” N9ne says. Every time the label’s producer, Seven, would send a beat, the musicians would say, ‘Let’s do another one. Let’s do just one more. ‘” Originally, the project was going to be titled Dominion: Part II, “but we didn’t want confusion, so we just named it, Dominion Strange. It’s time to rule again. , you know?”
Aaron Dontez Yates, aka N9ne, whose fan base spans hip-hop, rock, metal, EDM and more, has built a loyal following for not being afraid to share raw emotion in his songs.

“I was touched because we all have this in common even though we are different: different races, different religious beliefs, cultural differences,” he says. “One thing we have in common is emotion. Everyone has happiness. Everyone has sadness. Everyone has madness. Everyone has confusion. I tapped into that. I gave people my life, my life story, whether it’s bad or not. good.”
He wrote about depression in “Suicide Letters,” a song that helped his fans deal with self-destructive thoughts. And many people relate to his honesty about his grief surrounding his mother’s death.
“That doesn’t mean I don’t partake in it,” he says. “We need to take our pain away, so I wrote a song, ‘Party the Pain Away,’ and people relate.”
At meet-and-greets and on social media, N9ne’s fans reach out to him, asking for his support and thanking him for writing the music that saved them.

“People come to meet-and-greets, like, ‘My mom…my dad…my brother just killed himself,'” he notes. “I am the psychiatrist of my fans. I wanted to be a psychiatrist before I did music, when I was in school. I fulfilled both of my wishes: I am the psychiatrist of my fans, and I am a famous rapper. .”
