Tech N9ne Adorns a Wicked Worldly Angel Mask
After much hardship with face painters, Tech N9ne decided to ditch the face paint and adorn a mask. He called up Corey Taylor of Slipknot and his wife Stephenie to get in touch with his mask maker. Being to many Slipknot shows Tech know that Corey must have one talented mask maker in his pocket. Corey and Steph gave him the hook and he couldn’t be happier. Tech spilled out the whole story on Instagram. Read all he has to say below.
Ok here it goes, PREMATURELY cause y’all keep digging so here it goes! I lost my best friend Brian Dennis to a crime of passion and he was my first face painter! My next face painter Craig Davis I lost him to suicide! My 3rd face painter Brian ( Scenario) Frasier I lost him to straight up going crazy enough to not being with us anymore! My 4th face painter Jose Ramirez wanted to quit touring so I lost him two weeks before the last independent powerhouse tour so I went into a panic but low and behold, My 5th face painter happen to be one of my recording artists Ubiquitous of CES CRU and he just happened to be going on that tour and he saved my ass! BUT, he’s entirely too talented to be going all over the world with me painting my face when he has fans to please! Which brings me to the matter at hand!( See my next post) y’all ready?
So I called my family @cmft_coreytaylor and wife to ask them if they could help me get in contact with their Mask Maker cause whoever he is he knows how to build masks for hr plus long energetic shows! I know this cause I attended Slipknot shows! That wonderful couple put me in contact with someone I call JAKE THE LIFE SAVER and he did indeed save my life when I just journeyed to Los Angeles August 11th on my daughter’s 22nd birthday! Jake covered me with shit and,,,,,,
And totally covered me so he could get a mold of my big Kingdom head! Jake and his people worked day in day out to get this masterpiece to me to rehearse in before tour but it took a little longer for perfection so he said he’d fly into my first show in IOWA to bring me it! I’m on fuckin pins and needles cause I’m thinking what if it doesn’t work? If not then I won’t have a face painter to paint my Worldly Angel like I like! But Jake ended up overnighting it to Strange HQ the morning our tour busses left but we pulled off before it arrived! Pins and FUCKIN needles man but my colleague Cory Nielsen drove that bitch up to Iowa right in time for our first sound check! WHEW! Which brings me to the conclusion! I’m,,,,,
Sooooo thankful for Corey Taylor and his wife Stephanie for hooking me up with Jake to create my very first performance MASK! I FUCKIN LOVE IT, IT FITS PERFECT AND IM GOING ON SHOW 4 Tomorrow without any flaws! What took two hrs to paint every night, now takes two minutes to get it on and positioned properly! Such a release you guys! I’ve been painted since 1994 till 2016! But that ended on my video set to I GET IT NOW cause that will be the last recording of me having actual face paint! The new era oddly started in Iowa being that the people who helped me have hella roots there! I feel even more INVINCIBLE and SUPER HERO like than EVER before! Long live the, KILLER CLOWN! #NOFUCKSGIVEN PS, Jake is working on different color schemes I want as we speak! The way of the future (clears throat) The way of the future, The way of the future (clears throat) The way of the future! Howard Hughes! T9!
