Tech N9ne Says Working With Lil Wayne Was The Highest Point Of His Career

Tech N9ne Says Working With Lil Wayne Was The Highest Point Of His Career

XXL recently asked Tech N9ne what was the highest point of his career and he answered Lil Wayne hitting him up to work on Tha Carter IV. Pretty cool!

I couldn’t believe that Wayne hit me up for Tha Carter IV. And never met me. Couldn’t believe that. I’ve always been the outcast. The dude with the facepaint. Everybody thought I was a devil worshipper. The weird guy who rapped backwards. Nobody does that shit. I’ve always been the weirdo dude. When somebody of that stature—I’m independent. I use my own money, me and Travis [O’Guin, co-founder of Strange Music], you know. These motherfuckers are filthy rich. He was in jail at the time, this nigga is sitting on a lot. He can work with anybody he want to and Funkmaster Flex asked him, “Who do you want to work with?” He said, “Andre 3000 and my man Tech N9ne.” Wow.
