ELTON JOHN CAN FEEL THE GANGSTA RAP TONIGHTMarch 14, 2017
It’s no secret Elton John is hip… but we didn’t know he loved his hip hop!
He is currently in Vancouver, Canada performing and was spotted outside a local record store. He was on the search for records by the artist Tech N9ne who is an amazing rapper.
Tech N9ne was completely flattered. Bromance alert!
I was totally flattered. When a musician of his magnitude walks into a record store and requests your music – that's validation for songs like "Who Do I Catch Now." When you write a song like "Who Do I Catch Now" you already know you are supposed to catch everybody, but you don't know who is coming next. Its validation you are doing it right this whole time. I've been knowing that, but when you see something of that magnitude, it makes you smile like really "Who Do I catch Now"? When I woke up that morning, I had a text from Mackenzie Nicole, it was in caps and it said "ELTON JOHN! Who Do You Catch Now?" I was like, "I was thinking the same thing!" I knew way before "Who Do I Catch Now" that I was going to catch so many because my music is supposed to be for everybody and this is another step in the right direction. Thank you, @EltonJohn. Such a wonderful musician pretty much acknowledged that he thinks the same thing about me. Same thing with Dwayne Johnson – @TheRock, it keeps on going. I don't know what music he was looking for, but my attorney knows his manager so he's gonna get all the vinyl and the newest LPs just in case he was looking for one of those. We're gonna give him everything. So Elton John, you don't know this, but you're gonna get everything plus! Thank you so much. I can't wait to meet you and talk music…and talk a collab. Love, T9!
Now, he’s featured on the latest A Tribe Called Quest album.
Elton John, give Da Brat a call because we are so pumped for that collab.
