HIP-HOP | Tech N9ne 

Rapper Aaron Dontez Yates, better known by his stage name Tech N9ne, has been in the rap game for more than 20 years, and his longevity can be accredited to the simple fact that this guy can spit fire. His "chopper" style of rap is equal parts speed and technicality — kind of like a cross between Eminem and Kendrick Lamar. His last studio album, 2013's "Something Else," features Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and B.O.B., and Tech N9ne is gearing up to release his 14th full-length, "Strangeulation" on May 6. Some notable tracks to check out — and watch the videos if you can, they are a real treat — are "Am I a Psycho?" "E.B.A.H," and the one that best shows off his speed rapping skills, "Fragile."

Tech N9ne performs with Krizz Kaliko and Jarren Benton on Tuesday, April 29, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. Show is at 7 p.m. $30. Waterstreetmusic.com; Strangemusicinc.com.
