Tech N9ne - Fragile (feat Kendrick Lamar, Kendall Morgan, ¡MAYDAY!)

Tech N9ne has always come off as a bit gimmicky to me, but he has something to say to the critics on this one.

Over some lean and piercing production, this song tackles an issue close to home here on Straightgoods--media critics/journalists and their ability to project opinions on an artist's material.  It offers an interesting perspective: with every verse, these guys are really putting it on the line for all to see.  Keyboard heroes with more influence then they rightfully deserve have the power to slam something they might not have the slightest understanding of.   Whether you buy into the motivations behind this track or not, the two lyricists showcase some incredible wordplay while Kendall Morgan and ¡MAYDAY! entrance us on the hook.

Kendrick offers up yet another feature verse, but as this song makes clear, who are we too criticize?  The dude is as consistent as back-sweat on a July afternoon. Maybe his unadulterated rawness is contagious in the rap game.  And if that's the case, the more exposure the better.

Look out for Tech's upcoming album, Something Else, which will be released on July 31st.
