I debated on doing a playlist post this month because I've pretty much ONLY been listening to the new Tech N9ne album Special Effects. However, since it's been 2 months since I've done a playlist post and I'm STILL listening to this album... I decided it deserved to be talked about.
I'm seriously obsessed with this album. Holy Smokes. This is some great music. I'm incredibly impressed with it. It almost plays like a concept album centering around a specific theme, the death of his mother. It's by far my favorite music they've produced. I tend to be a sucker for concept albums though.
This album mixes up Tech N9ne's hardcore rap with alternative rock, metal, and gospel. It's fabulous. One of my favorite songs from the album "Lacrimosa" [which is Latin for "weeping"] is a beautiful mix of rap and gospel. Very powerful. I have a soft spot for music written from pain of loss.
Guest Appearances on the album by: Eminem, Yo Gotti [love ♥], TI, Hopsin, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and Slipknot.
