Overview

Vintage is not entirely the case on this compilation of early works and more recent endeavors from Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne. Tech's been down for a minute, trading verses with everyone from the mighty 2Pac to the real Slim Shady (although in a more casual sort of party that also included RZA, KRS-One, Xzibit and Kool G Rap on Sway & King Tech's "The Anthem"). But despite these Billboard-topping friends, Tech ain't there just yet. Cut's like "Monster" just aren't ready for prime-time while the captivating "S.H.E." is a near-psychopathic spoken word where Tech obsesses over a dancer, "I left my mic for you, my wife for you/I miss you so I'm sitting outside the club every night for you." And no, it doesn't have a happy ending. But this disc does; it's a happy find for longtime fans who would rather have vintage Tech than patiently wait for his next full-length full of hardcore sniping, ominous subjects and club bangers like "Victory" which, despite its earnest attempt at mainstream funk and Luda ready lines like "Cause your momma got a big old butt, and your sister got a big old butt/Since your momma and your sister got a big old butt they helped the niner bust a nut," can't avoid the melancholy horns and disquieting choruses. So Tech N9ne stays below the mainstream, but not below the radar.

Tech N9ne is in my opinion probably the most talented rapper to exist at this time. His flow and lyrical skills are amazing. Ive been craving something new from Tech ever since he dropped Absolute Power. Although this album technically is not new, its a collection of some older slept on tracks from Tech, Its still a great CD. Although ive heard a few of the songs on here already most I have not and it was a treat to hear his older songs and learn that even in the early days Tech was able to rip it as hard as he does today. All in all a great CD and im very glad he decided to put this out, it will hold me over until Eveready: The Religion. MCL
