When I try to envision Tech N9ne recording music, the image in my head looks less like your typical snapshot of a rapper in the booth than a still from a Godzilla flick. To paraphrase his latest single, his sh*t is so Hard, it's like A Monster Made It. Here, a menacing, organ-led Seven production accompanies the Strange Music capo as he goes toe-to-toe with his most recent signee. Rather than attempting to emulate his new boss's breakneck flows, West Coast underground mainstay MURS stays in his lane. In his confident closing 16, he explains, “I don't rap fast, I'mma leave that up to Tech and 'em / Ces, Bernz, Krizz, Rittz, Wrek, and the rest of 'em.” For more scorching bars from Tech and his many connects, cop his collabo album Strangeulation, out now.
UPDATE: We've added the brand new visuals for Hard.
