LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- The Royals turned to music when they wanted to be hyped up before games. One of the artisits that always made it into the mix, Kansas City’s own Tech N9ne. Now he’s ready to return that favor with a gift to the Royals and you.
Right after the Royals won the World Series, Tech N9ne headed straight to the recording booth and laid tracks for his city and the 'Boys in Blue.'
“Yo yo yo. Tell me whenever you're ready,” Tech N9ne said.
Monday night, Tech N9ne says he felt a fire inside of him like never before. He pulled out a pen and a piece of paper and a beat came to his head.
“I want them to stomp, stomp, clap, clap, clap. I want people to feel that,” he told FOX 4's Megan Brilley.
Tech N9ne says it was the Royals that inspired him. It turned into his new single called KCMO Anthem.
“I added that to it to give it that umph. And it worked,” he said.
Tech N9ne says he wanted to convey what he felt Sunday and Monday into the new anthem, a thank you of sorts, to the 'Boys in Blue.'
“It's a big ha-ha to everybody, because everybody always talks smack about KC, oh Dorothy and Toto.”
The Royals proved that there’s no place like Kansas City with their success this season. Tech N9ne says he wants everyone on the team to know how the city feels about them.
“I meant it from the bottom of my heart that I'm proud of the Royals,” he said.
And so are the 800,000 people who showed up at Tuesday's parade and victory rally. Tech N9ne was there too, and said he’s never been more proud to rep KC.
“I felt like I was a part of it. I am a part of it. We all are. Kansas City man. We're all a part of it,” he said.
If you want to hear the KCMO Anthem live, Tech N9ne's next concert will be on December 2nd at the Midland.
