Tech N9ne continues to reign supreme as the king of indie rap. In 2013, this verbal assassin went out on the road with his “Something Else Tour.”

This year, Tech N9ne has embarked on the “Independent Grind Tour.” This artist is touring in support of his 2013 release “Something Else” on his Strange Music label. This album spawned the single “Fragile,” which features Kendrick Lamar, Mayday and Kendall Morgan. In addition to heavy radio rotation, “Fragile” has become a favorite of fans and critics alike.

Tech N9ne will be joined by three of Strange Music’s most promising artists. Freddie Gibbs will be on the lineup with Tech N9ne. Gibbs just released a collaborative album called “Pinata,” which was produced by Madlib. Jarren Benton will entertain the crowd with cuts from his album “My Grandma’s Basement.” As Southern California’s masters of pop-up shows, Psych Ward Druggies will bring some new school beats and rhymes to the mix.
