Don’t sweat the TECH-nique. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Aaron Dontez Yates, better known as Tech N9ne has been gracing the hip hop world with his emotionally driven, hard cores lyrics for over 10 years. Tech N9ne (as in TEC-9 semi -automatic handgun) whose name was given to him by fellow Kansas City rapper, Black Walt because of his fast paced delivery, knows the true meaning of being independent.
Though Tech N9ne was a former member of the group Black Mafia and The Regime , it wasn’t until he launched his own label, Strange Music, in 1999 with his business partner Travis O’Guin that Tech N9ne was able to truly express his “independent” creativity.

Tech N9ne is often quoted thanking his fans, who are called “Technicians” for their continued support. Since his March 13, 2012 release of his six-song EP, “KLUSTERFUK”, Tech N9ne has been quite busy, headlining his own tour Tech N9ne: Hostile Takeover Tour 2012, and various meet and greet appearances for his “Technicians”.
