It was November 2012 when I made the decision to see Hopsin over Tech N9ne because they were performing on the same night.
“He’ll be back next year” I thought to myself, here we are seven years later and Tech N9ne finally announces a UK tour.
At around 20 quid a ticket it was obvious Tech was still very unknown in the U.K.
The venue was Gorilla in Manchester, one of the smallest venues I’ve been to (the smallest are the best.)
I like being able to see the artists face without queuing up for three hours, and being able to get a pint and walk my way back to my friends without spilling half of it, or getting elbowed by the crowd.
The performance was great, I love rappers who interact with the fans and look like they are enjoying performing.
The set list had everything I wanted apart from my favourite song Fragile, he performed only one verse from many songs rather than less full songs which is a good idea.
He also had Krizz Kaliko performing with him which is a bonus as Krizz features on loads of Tech songs.
I would definitely recommend a Tech nine gig. I’d rate it an eight out of ten.
