Tech N9ne - Sickology 101: The Study Of Being Sick
Although Tech's lyricism shines bright on select songs, the vast guest-list of unknowns hold back the Kansas City Rap titan's second ensemble piece.
Kansas City Rap titan Tech N9ne [click to read] must not be feeling the effects of our current economic downturn. After surpassing the million unit Soundscanned mark for his decade-long career last summer [click to read], following the release of his most recent solo offering, Killer [click to read], the arguable king of independent Hip Hop (unarguably the current indie sales king with over 100,000 units scanned for Killer) is following up that audacious double-album release by dropping a vanity side-project showcasing the spitters signed to his Strange Music label, as well as a slew of relatively unknown regional talent. Sickology 101 is the second such "collabos" project featuring Tech alongside lesser known artists (following 2007's Misery Loves Kompany), and proof positive that the rapid-fire rhymer is by far the only Hip Hop artist in 2009 that can put out whatever he damn well pleases without worry to how its received commercially.
