Tech N9ne’s “Boiling Point” Goes Multiplatinum

Posted on January 9, 2013 by


Tech N9ne is an American rapper who was born in Kansas City, Missouri, as Aaron D. Yates.  He was given the name Tech N9ne by a fellow rapper, Black Walt, because of his fast rapping style that is similar to the fast speed of a TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun.

Tech has had a lot of success in the rap industry after he and Travis O’Guin founded Strange Music.  Tech N9ne is one of the most popular rappers in the United States.

He started his career in 1991 as part of a rap group called Black Mafia. He was also in a group called Nnuthowze, and he signed with Perspective Records in 1993. Unfortunately, the group disbanded after being released from the label.

This did not discourage Tech; as he rapped with a few groups in 1997, which also happened to be the year he and O’Guin founded Strange Music. He still owns this label with O’Guin and releases albums under that label.

Tech’s support continues to grow, as older fans appreciate him from when they were younger, and younger fans are buying his new music. Tech’s fan base is getting larger and larger by the day.

Tech N9ne has released nineteen albums so far. His most recent album is Boiling Point.

Boiling Point was released on 30 October and went multiplatinum, selling 30,000 copies in just a couple of weeks. Tech has sold over 120 million albums total. This number increases daily as people’s interest in him continues to grow.

Here is the track line-up for Boiling Point:
2. Fire in AC (feat. Krizz Kalicko and Smackola from Dirty Wormz)
3. Should I Killer
4. Hunger (feat. Brotha Lynch Hung and Bishop)
