Tech N9ne takes it back to hip-hop’s roots in the visual to his latest single, “Don’t Nobody Want None”.
The rapper delivers his rapid-fire flow over a classic-sounding b-boy instrumental inspired by Hashim’s 1983 classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul).”
The video finds Tech spitting, in between scenes of b-boys showcasing their breakdancing skills.
“It’s an honor to be able to re-do ‘Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)’ on my this album to pay homage to all the breakdancers and all the DJs, all the dance crews,” Tech N9ne says. “That’s me. I started out break dancing and pop-lockin. Then I started rhyming and then rapping just took over. I never forgot where I started though.”
“Don’t Nobody Want None” appears on Tech N9ne’s upcoming album, Planet, due out March 2, via Strange Music.
