On his Rocket Hour show, Elton had a chat wiith Tech N9ne.
”This year alone, you’ve put out three albums. You’ve put out, let me see, you’ve put out Enter Fear, More Fear, and Fear Exodus, is that right?”
Receiving confirmation, Elton said, ”What I love about your record, the production on your records is so brilliant. It’s, I think, some of the best-produced records I’ve ever heard. The sound, and the bass, and everything about them. And you have a style of your own. And what pissed me off, sorry to say that, is I think you don’t get the acknowledgement you deserve. Because I think you are truly one of the greats.”
In 2017 when Elton visited Vancouver’s Beat Street Records, he hoped to find albums by the Kansas City performer. The store was out of stock, so the songwriter left with discs from other artists, Morris Day, Scritti Politti, Jane Siberry, Divine Brown and Little Feat among them.
When Tech N9ne heard about this, he said, ”I was totally flattered. When a musician of his magnitude walks into a record store and requests your music, that’s validation for songs like Who Do I Catch Now. I don’t know what music he was looking for, but my attorney knows his manager so he’s gonna get all the vinyl and the newest LPs just in case he was looking for one of those.
”Thank you so much. I can’t wait to meet you and talk music and a talk a collab.”
