Tech N9ne is an inspiration to us all.
Kansas City has never seen one quite like Tech N9ne. The Strange Music mogul has come a long say since the AngHellic days, and has since unleashed his brainchild, record label Strange Music upon the world. Since then, the albums have come in legion, as have the A-list features; Tech even found himself sharing the mic with Andre 3000 on a Lil Wayne album. It's safe to say that Tecca Nina has proven to be one of hip-hop's most inspirational innovators. And now, he can officially say he's broken a impressive record, as per Billboard.
After his latest album Planet debuted at #7 on the hip-hop charts, Tech became the rapper with the most albums to ever hit the Top Ten Rap Albums Billboard chart. With nineteen, he surpassed his fellow emcees Gucci Mane and E-40, who have been tied at eighteen for a minute. Since the Billboard Top Rap Album chart originally began in 2004, Tech has seen the bulk of his albums fare successfully. In fact, Billboard has compiled an extensive list of Tech's commercial endeavors, including peak chart position and chart date, which you can examine below:
