Things got a little scary on AXS TV's SKEE LIVE tonight when hip-hop artist TECH N9NE visited the set in his first national television appearance. Knowing his love of horror films, host DJ Skee had an actor dressed as "Halloween" horror antagonist Michael Myers sneak up behind the rapper during their interview as a late birthday surprise.
As the spirited interview continued, TECH N9NE cleared up a misconception about his association with the "horror core" genre of hip-hop.
Listen what TECH N9NE has to say about his music here (warning strong language).
From the underground world to the mainstream scene, TECH N9NE has been a major influence in hip-hop over the last decade. With 10 top-five albums dating back to 2002 and singles with artists like Lil’ Wayne, Andre 3000 and Kendrick Lamar, he has consistently produced music that has resonated within the hip-hop community.
"Awwwe Man!" is taken from Nametag & NAMELESS "REDO" project available at midnight 11.12.13 on Brick Records as a digital release only featuring new songs from Nametag & NAMELESS, plus remixes from the duo's recently released LP titled "For Namesake".

Dilemmanade, a.k.a Johnny Dilemma, has been added as a support act for Machine Gun Kelly's upcoming "Raging with Reindeer II" Canadian tour throughout December. Dilemmanade will serve as support on all of MGK's upcoming Canadian shows and will be touring in support of his "Dilemmanade" EP, which was released earlier this year.
Dilemmanade, or Dilemma for short, was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario and relocated to Vancouver after narrowly surviving major brain surgery. A gifted wordsmith, Dilemma prides himself on being a songwriter that can rap circles around most new era emcees. He's one of the most energetic, audience-engaging, stage-diving and speaker-climbing emcees to present such amazing mic and breath control with such great clarity during a live performance. After releasing two albums with his former group, Sketch Bros, he sold 7,000 copies of his solo debut album, titled "Dilemma" in less than nine months.
Dilemmanade's explosive live show is unparalleled, and his energy earned him opening slots on bills with the likes of Snoop Dogg, The Game, Classified, Jedi Mind Tricks, Talib Kweli, as well as Redman and Method Man. Always on the grind, Dilemma was offered a chance to support legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs N Harmony on over 60 dates in three countries over two continents. Dilemmanade's music and message transcend across classes and resonate with everyone from thugs to the new wave of hip-hop heads. Now with his career on the rise, Dilemmanade is grinding to take things to the next level with the release of his upcoming sophomore effort in early 2014.

New Orleans, LA ~ New Orleans artist and recent RCA signee, Dee-1, can add another notch to his success belt as today we are happy to announce his addition to Lupe's Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour, joining The Boy Illinois and MMG's Stalley. Dee will be finishing out the multi-city tour, keeping the dates of November 19th, 20th and 21st free for a media run in New York to promote the November 19th release of his new project, "Psalms of David II." "Touring is my favorite part of this industry." Dee-1 says about joining his good friend on the road. "Plus Lupe is like a big brother, so going on tour together is going to be exciting.

This riveting, feature-length documentary captures the artists' swift rise during their Funk Volume 2012 tour in which rappers Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton, and SwizZz and label co-founder Damien Ritter toured 44 cities in 50 dates. For the first time, Funk Volume pulls back the curtain on the philosophy, non-traditional tactics, and challenges they've embraced to reach their current position. For fans of the artists, this well-photographed movie will provide an intimate look at their lives, but even new fans will be drawn into the drama of the artists' transitions as they become more comfortable with the highs and lows of success.
