Tech N9Ne Reveals Eminem Collaboration on ‘Special Effects’ Album
Technicians rejoice! After years of trying to to secure a rap duet with Eminem, Tech N9Ne has finally got it done. The Kansas City rhymer revealed that he and Slim Shady will appear on a new song that will appear on his upcoming album, Special Effects.
Tech appeared on Sway in the Morning last Thursday (April 2) talk about his fifteenth studio album. That’s when he dropped the big news that Em will appear on the song “Speedom (WWC2),” which also features Krizz Kaliko. Tech also confirmed the news on social media and on his official website.
The “Speedom (WWC2)" track will premiere on Sway In The Morning on April 20.
The Tech N9Ne-Eminem collaboration has been years in the making. In a 2011 interview with the Boombox, the “Fragile” rapper explained what it would take for him and Em to collab.
“The beats say everything. The beats say, “OK, this is Eminem,” he explained. “That happens every once in a while, doesn’t happen all of the time. They say, “When you gonna get Em on a song?” [and] I say, “I don’t know, whenever the beats tell me to.”
“I’m not tryin’ to just get people on songs to get their fans, or get recognition or ‘Oh, I got a song with Eminem, now I’m there,” he continues. “No, motherf---er! It’s because of rhyme skill. If I feel like I’m right there, I’ll say, ‘Let’s do it, let’s collab together.’ The fans just wanna hear it to see who do the best.”
Tech N9Ne’s Special Effects album will arrive in stores on May 4.
