Hip Hop Hating On The iPhone?

Posted August 5, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

The fine folks at Gizmodo attended the Rock the Bells festival last weekend and asked a slew of hip hop artists what they thought about the iPhone.

Guess what?

It turns out many rappers think it’s kinda sucky. Trugoy from De La Soul said it's "too cute," while Freestyle 101 vet B-Real thought it was just “okay.” M-1 of dead prez even went into a tirade about how it makes you part of the Matrix and Big Brother is watching, and so on.

Only Wu Tang Clansman Method Man gave it props…and he likely got his for free!

Freestyle 101: Tech N9ne

Freestyle 101: Tech N9ne »


Anyone who knows freestyling knows Tech N9ne from his days on The Wake Up Show. Despite being a resident of Kansas City, Tech N9ne used to appear on Sway and King’s popular Los Angeles (though nationally syndicated) hip hop show on a regular basis and spit ridiculously intricate and intense off-the-top rhymes, sometimes even rapping backwards and in his own alien language. His appearance alongside greats like Canibus and Chino XL on the infamous Wake Up Show Freestyles CDs and the posse track “The Anthem” featuring Eminem, RZA, Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch, Kool G Rap, KRS-One and more, cemented his rap as a unique MC.

You’ve also heard his songs "Jellysickle" and "My Wife, My Bitch, My Girl" from 2006’s Everready (The Religion) on the 25 To Life (PS2, Xbox) soundtrack, in which he is an unlockable character, and his track "The Beast" was also featured in 2006 Madden NFL (PS2, Xbox). His 2001 album Anghellic is considered a classic and the followup, 2002’s Absolute Power, was also well received, especially in the Juggalo community and amongst fans of horrorcore and rap-metal. That same year, he formed the label Strange Music, where he has released all of his albums since and even started signing other edgy independent artists. He is also a member of The Regime, which features Yukmouth, Dru Down, Tha Realest and Messy Marv, among others.
