Video Premiere: Tech N9ne Special Effects Tour
Wed, 20 May 2015 09:30:11
Find out what life is like on the road with Tech N9ne.
Tech N9ne recorded some of the highlights from his Special Effects Tour 2015, from the St. Paul, Minnesota stop. And guess what? He wants to share it with you, ARTISTdirectioners. We're exclusively premiering the footage, which is under two minutes and puts you backstage and onstage with one of the most exciting rappers around.
Come on, let's go hang with Tech N9ne.
The first part of the clip is shot in black and white, as the artist puts on his war paint. He is accompanied by low, dramatic sounds. It's almost all quiet on the Tech N9ne front. Then, something explosive happens.
When Tech N9ne hits the stage, he comes to life and the clip switches to in color, as the audio rises. The point is taken! Tech N9ne's most natural habitat is on stage. That is where the real Tech N9ne shines and where he is most vibrant and full of life.
So if you didn’t make it out to see Tech N9ne in St. Paul, or at any of the other dates on his Special Effects Tour, well, we're about to remedy that situation, friends! You can absolutely pretend you were there and live vicariously via this clip.
But guess what? You won’t feel like you are in the crowd. You will feel like you are on the stage, as a supreme VIP, with the kind of bird's eye view that Tech N9ne fans can usually only dream of.
This isn't a special effect. It's real. And it's the Special Effects Tour.
