Technical skills

Rapper Tech N9ne put his talent — and his fondness of women — on display at the Diamond Ballroom.


Music

Ryan Querbach
The 30-minute delay before Tech N9ne took the stage gave me time to study how large and diverse the crowd was. Wednesday night’s show at the Diamond Ballroom featured people from all walks of life — including a few Juggalos — but they all seemed to have one thing in common: They were die hard Tech N9ne fans.

Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper T.I. has released Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, his eighth studio album and the first since his most recent stint in prison.
