Cam Harris here returning folks for your Monday beat. Keeping pace with the usual Monday Throwback vibe of a classic hip hop song, I decided to introduce my long time favorite rapper and Strange Music CEO, Tech N9ne.
For those of you who do not know about Tech N9ne, you are certainly in for a treat. Tech, also known by his real name, Aaron Yates, has remained as the #1 Independent rapper in the country. Now one may ask, who could care less about an Independent? Fortunately for Tech, his insanely rapid rapping skills along with his story-like telling approach has gained him respect from almost every major artist in the industry. I personally had the opportunity to see Tech live last a few weeks ago at the Worcester Palladium and in a nutshell, his raw talent matched with his undying appreciation for his fans made the energy level feel like it was pulsing every beat of the way. His newest album which dropped earlier this month entitled, "All 6's and 7's" has quickly impacted the charts with collaborations with some of the top artists in the business including the likes of Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, B.O.B, and E-40 just to name a few.
I highly recommend browsing the tracklist for his newest album and taking a listen; I promise you will not regret it. However, to ease you into your work week I have decided to feature the track that made Tech famous, and many college kids alcoholics. Without further or due, I give you Caribou Lou.
