Tech N9ne has announced the forthcoming release of his new album, Planet, due out March 2. Along with this news, the independent rap mogul is dropping the first song and visual from the LP for “Tech N9ne (Don’t Nobody Want None).”
The high-energy “Tech N9ne (Don’t Nobody Want None)” was inspired by Hashim’s 1983 classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul),” the catchy dance track best known for its rapid beat and robotic “It’s time” refrain, “Tech N9ne (Don’t Nobody Want None)” features Tech N9ne flexing his skills as a supreme lyricist and master of flow while paying homage to his formative years as a b-boy (breakdancer).
“It’s an honor to be able to re-do ‘Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)’ on my this album to pay homage to all the breakdancers and all the DJs, all the dance crews,” Tech N9ne says. “That’s me. I started out break dancing and pop-lockin. Then I started rhyming and then rapping just took over. I never forgot where I started though.”
Other Planet tracks include “Levitation,” a thank you to the Kansas City rapper’s fans; “We Won’t Go Quietly,” a majestic meditation on racism, fear, and love; and the previously-released “Drink Up.” Tech N9ne collaborates with Machine Gun Kelly, Mackenzie Nicole, Krizz Kaliko, Darrien Safron, and Joey Cool, among others, on the project.
Tech N9ne had a specific goal in mind while crafting Planet.
“I wanted to create my own planet because this one seems to be having so many problems with hatred and murders,” Tech N9ne explains. “I just wanted to leave this planet and create my own, with love and lyrics.”
Soon after Planet arrives in stores, Tech N9ne is scheduled to embark upon his Tech N9ne’s Planet Tour 2018.
