    Tech N9ne, ‘All 6’s and 7’s’

    Tech N9ne - All 6's and 7'sOn All 6’s and 7’s, Tech N9ne claims he’s a “Cult Leader,” with a following of suburban delinquents that mimic his facepaint designs and his violent, operatic dirges. Promising a similar fate for hip-hop’s mainstream, he adds, “I’m gonna show these non-believers what mass lab-producing means.”

    But as hell-raising séances go, All 6’s and 7’s can’t compare to Tech’s 2001 debut, Anghellic, where he rapped alongside a firing machine gun. “I’m beyond the boobies and the champagne,” he claims on “Love Me Tomorrow,” pronouncing it “champain-ya.” Instead, the 39-year-old Midwestern rapper offers star power. Admitted Tech fan Lil Wayne and T-Pain discuss “animal magnetism and sado-masochism” on the bawdy “Fuck Food,” while E-40 and Snoop Dogg trade “Pornographic” tales and Yelawolf and Busta Rhymes join the nine-man speed-rapping race “Worldwide Choppers.”
