If you know nothing about Tech N9ne and why his name constantly keeps coming up on the radar of your favorite hip-hop blog/website/etc. it’s simple – Tech takes what your average indie darling does (release mixtapes, do a few shows) and expands it on an entirely different level.

His Strangeland music imprint is owned by him and every thing he does usually winds up in house. Meaning he has his own merchandise, can set up his own tours and release his own music without having to second guess himself. In the end, a Tech N9ne release without much national promotion can be sold for about $18.98 (his last “mixtape” sold 50,000 copies), earn in between $20K to $40K for live performances (40-date tours) and wind up in the end wielding profits of about $2.2 million bucks give or take the math.

I say all that to say this: the game’s most successful indie darling is heading on tour with stops in Houston on October 4th at House of Blues included. Don’t sleep on the “Mental Giant”.
