Thursday To-Do: Tech 9ne

Posted By on Thu, Nov 5, 2009 at 9:51 AM

8 p.m., The Village. $18-$22.

If there's anything I've learned from eight years of constantly going to concerts, it's that you can't predict a crowd. But if anyone can break the Village's streak of big hip-hop concerts (like DMX and Snoop) not drawing, I'm putting money on Tech N9ne. Nearly 30 years into the game, the Kansas City rapper might be the most successful indie rapper in the industry. Last year, he was the third highest grossing urban tour in the country behind only Kanye West and Jay-Z. Look for versatility. Throughout his career, he's dabbled in everything from horrorcore to thug rap to R&B and, accordingly, built a following that includes everyone from hip-hop heads to Juggalos. Tech N9e comes with his Strange Records crew in tow — Krizz Kailko, Kutt Calhoun and Big Scoob. Also on the bill: Slaughterhouse, which XXL has called a “rap fan's dream come true … like having Manny, Vlad, Pujols and Santana all on your fantasy baseball team.” The hip-hop group features revered underground MCs Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5'9.
