Tech N9ne-Worldwide Choppers featuring Yelawolf, Busta Rhymes, Twista and Ceza review by John M. Ellison IV
On May 3rd, 2011 XXL released Tech N9ne’s Worldwide Choppers featuring Yelawolf, Busta Rhymes, Twista and Ceza. After the initial listen, the first thing I could utter was “Whoa.”
“Worldwide Choppers” is a showcase of quick tongued lyricists Yelawolf, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Ceza, J.L. B Hood, U$O, D-Loc & Twisted Insane speed flow. For fans that are just discovering Tech N9ne, understand that this isn’t the first of the “Choppers” series before you had songs such as “Midwest Choppers” that featured Mid-west rappers D-Loc (not to be confused with the California rapper of Stoner Rap-Rock Kottonmouth Kings), Dalima and Strange Music mainstay Big Krizz Kaliko on the album “Tech N9ne Collabos Misery Loves Kompany” and Midwest Choppers 2 ft. K-Dean and Krayzie Bone on Sickology 101.
With collabo tracks like this I see a parallel to as they call in jazz world a “head tune.” I relate it to a head tune, not necessarily because of a melodic main theme, but the common “theme” of everyone on the track using a double time flow. Production wise, the choppy guitar hits were a nice touch and gave the track an aggressive edge. Lyrically, I’m not even going to try and compare the artists by saying which artists on here had the fastest or the best verse on here.
In closing, if you’re looking for a track that showcases some of the fastest rappers, this is definitely a great place to start.
