Serj Tankian Collaborates With Rapper Tech N9ne
System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian was hired by rapper Tech N9ne for a collaboration on his forthcoming release "Something Else." The singer will be featured on the album's opening number, although the song name still remains unknown. As a big fan of Tankian's work, Tech N9ne calls himself a "rock & roll nigga," adding that the song they'll be working on makes SOAD frontman "run faster on the treadmill." "I think he is f--ing insane lyrically, musically, spiritually ... Totally cluster-f--k-ish like myself you never know what's going to happen in the music," the rapper tells Rolling Stone. "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 went on only to confirm Tech N9ne's story by saying: "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." The rapper also discovered that he is looking for further collaboration with other big figures in metal, including Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Metallica frontman James Hetfield. "I might send [new music] to James Hetfield," said Tech N9ne. "I heard he was a fan. I heard they [Metallica] warm up to my song 'Einstein.'" "Something Else" is set for a June 25 release via Strange Music as the fourteenth record in the rapper's catalogue.
