  • It wasn't necessarily good news for Tech N9ne when he landed on the Forbes' list of hip-hop's wealthiest rappers in 2014. He told The Boombox: "I find a certain comfort in this darkness that people been giving me ever since this Forbes list. Your family members turn on you over petty money and because you're busy and you're in the studio and you ain't got no cash on you, they think you're holding out on 'em and wanna fight."

    "I have a certain comfort with the darkness now because it's been so relevant in my life for so long, with my mom being sick and finally passing and the people changing as you get bigger and bigger," he continued. "So 'A Certain Comfort' is about that. You can bring all the evil you want, I'ma make it disappear."
