Dj Booth caught up with Strange Music‘s boss Tech N9ne while walking into the Grammys. First natural topic of conversation was his own possible GRAMMY future:

“I might win something next year…or…I don’t think it will ever come, I don’t know. I just want my music to reach everybody, not just the awards people.We don’t think of that, we just do it – as long as I love it. My music’s three dimensional because I am. There is rock, there is gangster shit, there’s everything.”

“That’s why I could never fit in when I was with the major labels. Is it rock? Is it rap? How do you label that shit? It’s just fucking music man. I just make music with beautiful people, I don’t care who they are. I’m not done yet either.”

“Good music is always going to shine through, no matter if it’s brain dead or conscious. I find some good stuff in Young Thug. Not everybody can be a master rapper like me or Eminem or Royce da 5’9” or Slaughterhouse or Chino XL or Logic – it goes on forever. The problem with people in music is they’re trying to point the finger at people who arent doing what they’re doing.”

“That’s the problem with barriers, they’re always trying to separate us, and we can’t do shit when we’re separated. We’re trying to unite people, fuck the barriers. When they see me with Korn they’re gonna shit. When they see me with Diplo, they’re gonna shit. When they see me with J. Cole they’re gonna shit. Just like they shit when they saw me with Eminem. This is real because I’m really about making beautiful music.”

 

Good fellas!
