Tech N9ne Lets His Freak Flag Fly On “I Caught Crazy!”

Stream "I Caught Crazy"

Tech N9ne’s “I Caught Crazy” carries on his dark tradition.

Tech N9ne has long nursed a reputation with the dark side, dubbing himself the KOD (king of darkness) long before J. Cole held the mantle.

Songs like “Suicide Letters,” “Sad Circus,” and “Low,” have provided revealing glimpses into Tech’s inner psyche, with an honesty his fans have been thankful for.

Now, on his recent EP N9NA Collection 2, Tech has offered up an inspiration dip into the waters of insanity, the guitar-driven “I Caught Crazy!” Rather than seeking the exit sign, this one finds Tech embracing the benefits of his unconventional mind, the catalyst for his creative genius.

N9NA Collection 2! I’ve been rapping my head off for 33 years so I’m like, why am I going to keep making songs about how good I can rap? They already know. So, I started tapping into my body and thoughts, my soul and everything what makes me different, what makes me the Lord of Weird. What makes me is life experiences and mistakes and the will to do crazy shit…risk your life doing ignorant shit and realizing that you caught crazy a long time ago. Knowing that you’re comfortable with it. Then I thought about how many people can relate to that. I’m afraid to say it out loud because the first step is admitting you’re crazy in some kind of way. It can be girl crazy, crazy for money, it can be mental illness in some kind of way. The way to embrace it is to treat it, the best way to treat it is to speak it out loud for people to interpret. It just hit me one day, I Caught Crazy! And it’s gonna be that way forever. So, I give you “I Caught Crazy! (4EVER)” and “EDI’s” streaming everywhere, including @spotify ! Listen, enjoy! N9na Collection 2 is here! I will be back with more insight for “EDI’s”!

On the song itself, Tech reflects on implementing his madness into his music, rapping “talking to myself and I learned to talk backwards, took the thing and I put it in a raw rap verse.” Check out the song now, and sound off below. Have you been following Tech’s journey since day one?
