This Month in KC’s Music History: Tech N9ne Goes Platinum

Bookmark and Share

I can’t let September end without acknowledging this significant milestone: Rapper Tech N9ne was certified as a platinum-selling artist in September 2008, making him the top-selling independent artist in hip-hop.

Tech N9ne grew up in Lee’s Summit, Mo., a suburb at the southeast part of the metropolitan area. Lee’s Summit is still his base of operations as the co-owner and principal artist of Strange Music.

Platinum signifies 1 million in sales, which is an amazing accomplishment for an indie artist. In a career spanning 20 years and 10 albums, Tech N9ne has steadily built a following, out of the hip-hop mainstream.

This fall, he appears to be making moves toward the mainstream. Collaborations with Lil Wayne and Eminem are said to be possibilities. And last week, the Pitch reported that Tech will appear in the movie Vengeance starring Danny Trejo. According to IMDB, the movie will be released on Nov. 11.

Tech’s most recent album, The Gates Mixed Plate, was released on July 27.
