Tech N9ne Plays Preacher in ‘Straight Out the Gate’ Video
Tech N9ne released his 13th studio album, ‘Something Else,’ this week and shared his disappointment at not being able to include Drake on the project. He’s still keeping on though, and yesterday, he released the video to ‘Straight Out the Gate.’
System of The Down’s Serji Tankian, the song’s featured vocalist, makes an appearance as Tech N9ne spits his intricately rhymed verse at an audience. And because it wouldn’t be a Tech production without some quirks, the attendees are wearing smiley face masks as he performs wearing preacher attire.
In other scenes, the rapper and Tankian are in front of a screen flashing religious imagery, flames and distorted images of Paula Deen and Barack Obama. It adds social and political undertones without taking away from the video’s intensity.
