System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian To Guest On New Album From Rapper Tech N9ne


System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian will be guesting on the opening track of Tech N9ne‘s coming new album, “Something Else“. That effort is being primed for a June 25th release date. Tech N9ne told of the collab:

“I think he is fucking insane lyrically, musically, spiritually . . . Totally cluster-fuck-ish like myself – you never know what’s going to happen in the music. If you talk to Serj, he’ll probably tell you he knew nothing about Tech N9ne until the song was sent to him, and after listening to it he went and got all my music, and it makes him run faster on the treadmill.”

Tankian himself said of the pairing:

“I had not heard of Tech N9ne when we were sent the track. I checked out a bunch of his songs and really got into his flow, intensity and dynamics, and I agreed to sing on it. Originality in hip-hop and rock are hard to come by.”

Tech N9ne also told Rolling Stone that he had hoped to get a cameo from Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor on the album; but scheduling issues prevented it. N9ne remains undeterred though, stating: “I might send it to James Hetfield. I heard he was a fan. I heard they [Metallica] warm up to my song ‘Einstein.'”
