Tech N9ne tears up Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on Strangeualtion Tour (Live) [Photos]

Vancouver, BC – The hardest grinding rapper in the biz, Tech N9ne made his annual stop to the Commodore Ballroom to another sold-out Vancity crowd. On his Strangeulation Tour with Strange partner-in-rhyme Krizz Kaliko, it was a rowdy night of hard hitting raps, epic showmanship and that classic Tech N9ne energy.

This was the second stop on his 19-city Canadian Tour with true North group Animal Nation along for the ride. It can only be assumed that Tech N9ne’s consistent sold-out shows are largely due to his relentless touring combined with his drive to put on an ear punching performance.

Our man on the cam was front and centre to catch the action – peep his photo gallery below.

R.O.M.I – G.T.A [Audio]

Vancouver, B.C - R.O.M.I. (Rise of My Inspiration) is a creative collective comprised of Johannesburg born rapper/producer Futonious Don III and Dubai/United Arab Emirates bred SoULBOi. ”G.T.A” is there latest release and will be part of the group’s forthcoming album R.O.M.I. [I] EP. 

In the making of this porno-inspired track, Futonious Don III’s verses were originally intended as outtakes but incorporated into the track to further express the group’s style. The track has a strong dark beat, but starts off with a romantic soulful intro that quickly melts into sexy descriptions of some first class ass. The lyrics are witty and the bass is a dancefloor’s dream- it should come ready with strobe lights. Check out this sexy track down below.
