A note from Strange Music and Tech N9ne:
First and foremost, we truly hope that everyone has remained safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. Your well-being is the most important thing to everyone here at Strange Music. We also continue to monitor all of these current events and have decided to push this tour all the way into the month of May 2021 in hopes that this crazy situation will hopefully be well in our rearview mirrors by then and we can get back to some sort of normal. I think we could all agree that we need that to happen!
Due to the postponement of the tour, and Jelly Roll having prior commitments for the fall, Jelly Roll will not be available for these rescheduled dates. However, in removing him from the lineup, the great news is we have been able to replace him with Rittz! Check the website for the new list of dates and cities. Note that there are a few dates that will be listed as TBA as we continue to finalize the last few remaining shows, so check back for updates.
Please stay safe and healthy during these unusual times and do all you can to take care of yourselves and your families. We’re looking forward to seeing you next year!
The independent underground would not be what it is today without pioneers like Strange Music cofounder Tech N9ne. Tech’s unparalleled tour schedule and signature rapid-fire “chopper” style combined with the business acumen of Strange Music CEO Travis O’Guin have molded Strange Music into the number one independent hip-hop label in the world. In less than two decades, Tech himself has earned three gold records, sold over two million albums, and made multiple appearances on Forbes’s “Hip-Hop Cash Kings” list. Tech’s multi-faceted skillset has not gone unrecognized by artists of all genres, exemplified by collaborations with such diverse artists as The Doors, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Eminem, and Boyz II Men, to name just a few. Everyone from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to Elton John has been spotted bumping Tech N9ne records, a testament to constant reinvention and inarguable excellence that has become standard of Tech’s work. It’s by no coincidence that his latest label-wide collaborative project was named Dominion – Tech N9ne will not stop until he and Strange Music have completely dominated the world of hip-hop and beyond.
Hailing from north of the ATL, in the suburbs of Gwinnett County, Georgia, comes Southern rapper Jonathan McCollum, aka Rittz. With a quick, sharp tongue and dexterous rhymes, McCollum had a few close calls in the music industry, winning a battle contest on Hot 107.9, and nearly following in the career path of Eminem, but unfortunately, he was unable to lock down a record deal due to disputes in management and contract deals. Soured by the experience, and just on the verge of giving up rap entirely, Rittz was recruited by Yelawolf to guest on "Box Chevy" from the 2010 album Trunk Musik 0-60. More collaborations followed, and so did two mixtapes, 2011's White Jesus and 2012's White Jesus: Revival. Strange Music signed the rapper late that year, and released Rittz's studio debut, The Life and Times of Jonny Valiant, in 2013.
