Tech N9ne Teams Up with Kendrick Lamar, ¡Mayday! + Kendall Morgan on ‘Fragile’
Indie rapper Tech N9ne is back with a new song called ‘Fragile,’ which features Compton rhymer Kendrick Lamar, rap-rock band ¡Mayday! and vocalist Kendall Morgan. The song appears on N9ne’s upcoming project, ‘Something Else.’
Over minimalist productions by ¡Mayday!, the Kansas City rhymer expresses his contempt for critics who over analyze rap music from afar and write dumb opinions.
“Critics are really the enemy / And I / Can’t stand the way they slam today’s gifted / Effin’ incredible, get fanned away with grands to pay / This jam Wale scripted / Def and impeccable,” he spits.
K. Dot agrees with N9ne and relays his thoughts on how the media is critical of his music.
“Empty magazine, I seen a magazine / You seen my trigger finger, then I started shootin’ / That was nicotine, I’m bout to smoke ‘em all / And journalists involved who should’ve known my music,” he raps.
In our humble opinion, this track sounds fantastic despite the duo’s vitriol for us music writers. Where’s the love, Tech N9ne?
In any case, N9Ne and Lamar share a lot of history together. It was on N9ne’s Independent Grind tour in 2010, when a then unknown Kendrick Lamar was performing and met Dr. Dre who was impressed with his stage show. The two linked up and K. Dot released his celebrated album, ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city,’ in 2012. Now Lamar is selling out shows worldwide.
Overall, there’s nothing fragile about N9ne and Lamar’s careers.
Tech N9ne’s new album, ‘Something Else,’ will arrive in stores on July 30.
