KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne has a special role Sunday at the Chiefs final regular season game at Arrowhead, and he said he is ‘super psyched.’
FOX4 reported the news Friday, and Tech N9ne responded on Facebook.
“My uncle Ike has been taking me to the Kansas City Chiefs games since my early single digits,” he shared.
He will be the guest drummer and spirit leader to get the crowd ready for what will hopefully be a win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
“I never thought I’d be one they’d choose to be a drum honoree that leads the fans in the chop!” he added on his Facebook post. “I’m SUPER PSYCHED! Thank you KANSAS CITY! IT’S ON COME SUNDAY!”
Earlier this month Tech N9ne put on a concert benefiting Patrick Mahomes’ charity 15 and the Mahomies. Other artists from his label, Strange Music, joined him on the stage at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.
The foundation focuses on improving the lives of children in the community.
When Tech N9ne takes to the drum deck Sunday, the #2 seed will still be in play. The Chiefs must win and the Patriots must lose for the Chiefs to score a first-round playoff bye.
The Chiefs hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over New England thanks to a victory two weeks ago that helped secure their fourth AFC West title in a row.
