Tech N9ne ft. Various Artists - Worldwide Choppers
If you’re a fan of breakneck flows, you’ve probably daydreamed at one point or another about the dopeness that would ensue if a grip of the game’s fastest spitters got together on one ensemble cut. Well, speed-freaks, I have good news: Tech N9ne‘s latest is that record. To put it sacrilegiously, Worldwide Choppers packs more rhythmic, rapid-fire syllables than a month of Sundays at your local Pentecostal church. Even, better, they all (I’m pretty sure) form actual English words. A standout cut off the Strange Music emcee’s 14th album, this joint finds Michael “Seven” Summers serving up a grinding, rock-infused backdrop for the voluminous verbiage of (in no particular order) Tech, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Ceza, JL B.Hood, Yelawolf, Uso, D-Loc and Twisted Insane. While I have to hand it to Yela for his creative subject matter (pogo stick assaults, Jehovah’s witnesses and streaking all figure into his bars), and Busta for his dope use of stuttering, I’ll leave it to readers to issue the final verdict on who came the hardest. Whatever your opinion, though, be sure to keep it locked for the latest tunes leading up to the June 7, release of Tech N9ne’s All 6’s and 7’s LP.
