Tech N9ne has teamed up with System of a Down front man Serj Tankian to record “Straight Out The Gate”. It was only a matter of time before this Strange Music Mogul had Serj on a track considering how Strange he is to begin with. I always was a big fan of System of a Down and also some of Serj’s solo work, like Empty Walls for instance.
It’s really cool seeing two different genre’s meet in the middle and collaborate to create something special. Tech N9ne has his usually high speed verse’s throughout the entire song while Serj Tankian takes care of the chorus in his higher pitched voice. Serj gives the song that nice “creepy” texture that combines very well with Mr. Yates to make one hell of a song for us to listen too.
I personally think some of Tech N9ne’s best work is in the second verse in which it reminds me of his second verse in the song “Come Gangsta”. Straight Out The Gate is from his most recent studio album “Something Else” which is available at Best Buy and also on iTunes. Here is the music video for Straight Out The Gate, please leave a comment and let me know what you think about this song by Tech N9ne and Serj Tankian.
