Who doesn’t love a little BBQ with their hardcore rap? Tech N9ne is the king of collaborations, and historically has helped put a lot of rappers on, that frankly, wouldn’t have had a chance in hell of getting put on otherwise. For example, I bet your bottom dollar you wouldn’t have heard about Krizz Kaliko or Makzilla had it not been for Tech. If you still haven’t, get familiar.
This album is supposed to show a more light hearted Tech N9ne, a simpler second dish served after his darker K.O.D album released earlier this year. In the spirit of lightness, the album is named after Gates-Bar-B-Q, a local favorite for the Kansas city native.
The most notable collaborations are Devin The Dude, Glasses Malone, Yukmouth and Jay Rock. The rest are more side orders than entrees. Have another bite on the house, and feel free to support the 38 year old’s effort today. Cop the album here.
