Tech N9ne Interview with Rolling Stone

"At 43 years old, Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne could be crowned the world's oldest XXL Freshman. His song "Hood Go Crazy" is cracking mainstream outlets like MTV, hip-hop radio and festivals like Los Angeles' Powerhouse — though he'd probably do just fine without them. Since starting his Strange Music label in 1999, his independent hustle has been almost invisible from mainstream view, but it's proven more lucrative than many traditional paths. Forbes consistently names him one of rap's "Cash Kings" — on this year's list, they suspect he brought in more money than Rick Ross and J. Cole. His 15th album, Special Effects, just entered the Billboard 200 at Number Four, marking his highest debut and highest sales week to date. We caught up with the mogul to find out about life on the other side of fame." -Courtesy of Rolling Stone
