With memorable features from Academy Award winners Three 6 Mafia, Strange affiliates Krizz Kaliko, Brotha Lynch Hung and Kutt Calhoun, K.O.D. allows TECH N9NE to paint the most vivid pictures he’s ever attempted. Powered by tracks like “Show Me A God” and “Leave Me Alone,” it may be his most personal collection of songs yet.
“I’ve seen so much pain recently,” TECH N9NE divulges, “so many dark things. I had to take those experiences and make something beautiful out of them. I couldn’t let myself fall into that hole with no chance of getting out.”
It was a deep despair that, regardless of his success, TECH N9NE could not shake. While touring, appearing on TV and acknowledging his support from an ever-growing fan base, his mother was waging war with her health. It’s these intimate battles that pushed his music to new corners – that helped him climb out of the hole and release his anger and pain on the tracks of K.O.D.
“I know people are feeling some of the same things I am,” TECH N9NE confesses, “and maybe this will let them see that everyone has those dark things they go through. Everyone can face them and be stronger in the end.”
Boasting a career most rappers strive for, TECH N9NE has consistently proved himself to be one of the hardest working entertainers in the game. In 2008, he reaped the rewards of his tireless efforts: He SoundScanned over 1 million units, making him the most successful Independent Hip-Hop artist in history.
With hits like “I’m A Playa,” “Caribou Lou” (which boasts 7.2 million MySpace plays), “Riotmaker,” “Like Yeah” and “Everybody Move,” it’s no wonder he counts a total of over 4.5 million YouTube video plays and an average of 40,000 MySpace visitors each day.

At the age of 22 he has already managed to gain a huge following across the united states and share the stage with some of the games biggest names. His movement WTF (We're The Future) is bringing people together and giving them a positive message to relay to others which led to the success of his first major project "Dream Big".
Dream Big, released in February of 2012 included the 3 hit singles "Fuck you Mean" "I Got Sauce" and "La La La" who's YouTube views combined for over 900,000 views selling singles and albums in all 50 states. The success of "Dream Big" led Futuristic on a 9 show mini tour through the West-coast and Midwest where his impeccable stage presence and extreme charisma excited fans and earned him new ones.
His most recent project "Chasing Down A Dream" dropped 2/19/2013 and quickly moved to #28 on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts and #86 on billboard with the lead single "Don't Mind If I Do" selling thousands of copies & accumulating over a Million views on YouTube.
Futuristic then joined Dizzy Wright on "The Golden Age Tour" & embarked on his own solo run in over 30 cities through the west coast and Midwest. His next project "Traveling Local" just dropped June 9th 2014 and debut at #10 on iTunes.
At 17-years old with several years of experience Dizzy decided to take his rap career seriously. Formerly known as Dizzy D Flashy, Dizzy was a winner on BET's "Wild Out Wednesdays," winner of the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition and released 5 mixtapes, which lead him to rack up over 1-million views on YouTube. Wright wants for people to learn something when they listen to his music by discussing situations that his fans can relate to. "The internet allowed me to see what my music did to people – I like being able to see the response. When you rap, you have a voice and this is how I balance my thoughts," says Wright.
In November 2011, Wright signed to Funk Volume after being discovered at the Sheikh Music "Rip the Mic" Competition in 2010. Impressed by his smooth flow, confident stage presence and energy that won over the crowd, Funk Volume knew he was a special talent and would be valuable addition to the team. On the heels of his latest mixtape "Soul Searchin' Next Level," Wright will release "Smoke Out Conversations" on February 20th, and says the tape was inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz's widespread book, "The Four Agreements." "I live the four agreements. The first agreement is be impeccable with your word. People will learn something from this mixtape.
