Songfacts®:

  • This features vocals by Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor. "Working with Tech was a no-brainer," stated Taylor. "When I heard the music for 'Wither', I knew the two of us would make something dark and crazy. The slow burn in the music is awesome. His band is great and the performance is incredible."

    Tech N9ne added that he has been a dedicated fan of Slipknot's music since the previous century. "This collaboration is a total dream come true, because I've been a maggot (what Slipknot affectionately call their fans) since '99."

    "This song we did together is such a dynamic roller coaster ride! It starts off calm and cool and then f---in' gets loud and extremely mean and crazy! It's perfect!"
  • Tech N9ne repaid the favor five years later when he rapped a guest verse for Corey Taylor's solo track "CMFT Must Be Stopped."
