Today in random YouTube finds: TechN9ne teaches us how to rap. In this audio interview for the book How to Rap: The Art and Science of the Hip-Hop MC, Tech outlines how he pulls together his flow and the influence the family breakfast table had on his music:
"How did I come up with so many flows and rhythms on my tracks? I think it came, like I said, from my family setup at the breakfast table, beating on stuff. It made me sort of like a percussionist."
Despite his menacing persona, Tech comes off completely sincere and self-effacing in the interview. The clip offers not just a wonderful insight into how Tech builds his flow but also how all MCs do it.
