It just seems like Tech N9ne gets bigger in the mainstream with each album. His new album Special Effects debuted at #4 on Billboard 200 and #1 on the Hip-Hop/R&B charts, moving 66k units in the first week.
In an interview with HHDX, the independent giant reveals that his next album is titled The Storm and promises that it will be even bigger than all his previous albums. He also talks about conflict with his distributor Universal Music, sample clearance issues, touring and more.
These industry mutherfuckers, F.T.I., Fuck The Industry, is because of these mutherfuckers right now halting me like they’ve always done. There’s no ceilings after this album. There’s no ceilings. I’m going through all ceilings. There’s no ceilings. It goes the fuck up, Justin. Fuck these mutherfuckers, man. Watch me on the next album. I’m calling it The Storm. I’m planning the next album already and I don’t even have this one out all the way. Watch me do something with Gary Clark Jr. Watch me get a song with Lana Del Rey. Watch me and Alanis Morrissette finally do it like we’ve been talking about. Watch Jay Z come through, man! I’m not stopping! I’m not stopping! I am fucking serious, dude. I’m so serious. I love music, man. I love it so much it saved my fucking life. I be so happy out here on tour, Justin. Man, all these people smiling at me. I was fucked up! I wasn’t supposed to make nothing out of myself, the teachers told me in school. Nigga, I’m #1 independent rapper! What? You don’t think I ain’t gonna keep doing it? I ain’t complacent, nigga! I’m not complacent! This is world domination!
