Tech N9ne Announces "COSM (Class Of Strange Music)" Collabos Album Coming July 12

June 4, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) Ready to heat up the summer to a boiling point, chart-topping multiplatinum hip-hop legend and the most successful independent rapper of all-time Tech N9ne has officially announced the next offering from his popular “Tech N9ne Collabos” series entitled COSM (CLASS OF STRANGE MUSIC) out everywhere on July 12

The pre-order is available today via his Strange Music label HERE


Tech also recently served up a hard-hitting new single & video “Drippy Drop” feat. Skatterman and Snug Brim just ahead of the album announcement and pre-order.


Listen HERE. Watch HERE.



A true KC affair, “Drippy Drop” reunites Tech with his fellow lyrical marauders Skatter & Snug as they rekindle the chemistry shared on previous collaborations and seminal Strange Music anthems such as “Riot Maker” from the gold-certified classic Everready (The Religion), “That Box” from the Collabos staple Misery Loves Kompany, and “Twerk” from the Strictly Strange 2008 Tour CD, among others. 


Now, this particularly raunchy and raucous record hinges on a beat that pops like a leaky faucet tightened up by a splashy hook. It shows yet another side of Tech’s artistry! Plus, the visual perfectly projects this vibe on screen.


Tech continues to break boundaries without compromise. Heavy-metal trailblazers Falling In Reverse recently tapped him and Alex Terrible of Slaughter To Prevailfor the explosive “Ronald.” Beyond stacking up 12 million-plus Spotify streams, Techturned up on stage during Falling In Reverse’s headlining set at Welcome To Rockville in Jacksonville, FL in front of over 55,000 fans for the single’s live debut. He left the stage in flames by delivering his standout verse with vicious vitality. Relive the moment HERE. The song also crashed the Top 10 of both the Billboard Top 10 Alternative Songs Chart and Top Hot Rock Songs Chart in addition to capturing #2 on the Hard Rock Streaming Songs Chart. Not to mention, Revolver applauded “the diverse talent of rap rocker Tech N9ne, and New Noise Magazine spoke to him in-depth at Welcome To Rockville, going on to praise, “His legendary presence with his rap rock metal mix and multifaceted style captivates his fans and colleagues everywhere he goes.” 


Next up, Tech will hit the road with Falling In Reverse on The Popular Monstour II, rolling through arenas and amphitheaters coast-to-coast this summer.

It landed in the wake of the collabos track “Roll Call” with Rittz and featuring King Iso, Joey Cool, JL, Lex Bratcher, and X-Raided. The latter has already stacked up almost 1.8MM YouTube views on the music video.
