You are complete idot....Tech N9ne wrecks the stage and its because of dumb sh*ts like you hes stuck in the underground, if you really want hip hop to prosper you will listen to the word of the n9ne because the word has had enough of the Lil waynes and flo rydas garbage rap....

you have absolutley no idea what you are talking about. go to the next TECH N9NE tour... and watch. just watch. TRY to stand in that crowd. GO BUY "SICKOLOGY 101" and i promise you're ignorant to everything self that you will change your mind. those two "hype men" are rappers themselves but revolve around tech n9ne. you have no idea what you are talking about and it sounds like you didnt get your estrogen supplements and didnt have an extra tampon during the show. you're a punk and you need to do some research. a good song for you would be "blown away" on sickology 101. you are what tech n9ne refers to as THE INDUSTRY. because you have no sense of taste in music. you're like an overpaid HELEN KELLER. get your stuff straight.... waste of flesh.

just keep bobbin your little head to lil wayne or moby or whatever you listen to because obviously none of these acts entertained you. if you're gunna be against the entire idea of rap music (too much bass, facepaint, this and that) then listen to country. that just might be what you listen to. COUNTRY. now you're a waste of flesh AND oxygen. run along and play in the barn. orrrrrrr.... you're one of those "rock n roll" lovers. the 2009 term of rock n roll seems to be AMERICAN IDOL. you are a fan of that crap. and thats why you have no clue of what you are talking about.

i have been attending rock the bells since it first toured chicago but this year i was very dissapointed. First of all, they do not even annonce who is showing up until the day of the show. This year, they fucking set up two stages. I paid for 125$ STANDING pit tickets, i excpect to see all the artists on one main stage. They put tech nine or however you spell it on the main stage but put artists like Raekwon and Sage Francis on the small free stage!!! Not only that, the food was overpriced and bad. The location is horrible because tinley park is 45 mins away from chicago. And on top of all of that, Common did not show up!!!! Rock the bells seemed unorginized and overpriced this year. They are becoming sell outs :(

noo offense to tech n9ne fans i am not hating i am just saying sage and raekwon are just as deserving of the main stage. I dont want u to think i am judging them because i wouldnt want someone to judge my music.
