- Facebook, Tech N9ne
The king of DIY hip-hop, Tech N9ne has made a name for himself by sheer grit and self-propulsion. Unloading verses at turbo speed with his chopper-style flow, the Kansas City rapper remains a force in the music industry — even without the help of a major label.
Starting his Strange Music label in 1999, Tech N9ne, born Aaron Dontez Yates, pretty much became the black sheep of the hip-hop world, refusing to bend to any particular style aside from his own. That stubbornness has garnered him a large and cult-like following.
Yates returns to San Antonio alongside Dax, Krizz Kaliko, ¡Mayday! and Ubi for a show at Paper Tiger on Tuesday, May 21.
