Why? He brings speed, realism and great lyric structure to his songs. His dark records are very awesome. He makes music and makes it true to himself. Something almost all rappers lost.

More Info: Aaron Dontez Yates (born November 8, 1971), better known by his stage name Tech N9ne (pronounced "Tech Nine"), is an American rapper from Kansas City, Missouri. In 1999, Yates and Travis O'Guin founded the record label Strange Music. Throughout his career, Yates has sold over one million albums and has had his music featured in film, television, and video games. In 2009, he won the Left Field Woodie award at the mtvU Woodie Awards.

His stage name originated from the TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun, given to him by rapper Black Walt due to his fast rhyming Chopper style. Yates later applied a deeper meaning to the name, claiming that it stands for the complete technique of rhyme, with 'tech' meaning technique and 'nine' representing the number of completion

You might ask why don't i have a lot of favorite rappers, i will be honest with you. I hate 99% of rap. Why would i want to hear you talk about

It doesn't help me in life and it probably bullshit. All the time the same lyrics and same shit. I like humble and true rappers. Not rappers made and controlled in content.
