Video: Tech N9ne talks earning big bucks without boasting, the benefits of being independent, his respect for Serj Tankian and more!

The most successful independent rapper of all time lives up to his status following the recently announcement that he earned more than 50 Cent ($7 million, #19) and just trailed Swizz Beatz ($8.5 million, #17) on last year’s Cash Kings list, as ranked by Forbes Magazine. The Kansas City legend goes against the grain (as he has built his rep for doing best) following this, for the same reason people choose not to announce they won the lottery! In this revealing and insightful interview with Radio.com the lyrical beast talks about his deep respect for System of a Down front man Serj Tankian, plans for a Strange Music branded music festival and more.

He also discussed the advantages he’s able to reap by being an independent rapper, which should serve as a lesson to anyone seeking that label deal that independent is definitely a more preferable option, when done correctly!
