During the interview, T9 revealed that he and his partner just received a $60 million offer for their Strange Music imprint… but ultimately turned it down.
“Somebody just called and offered us $60 million, and it wasn’t enough. I can’t say who it was,” he explained. “I talked to my partner Travis [O’Guin], and he’s like, ‘Man, with what we about do this year, $60 million ain’t gonna sound like nothing.’ And, I’m like, ‘Yea, you right.’
“All I know is I was on the Forbes list for $8 million, so I dunno. We do ok. I’ve never turned down $60 million. This is the first time we did it. It was really easy, we laughed about it…”
Tech also goes on to explain how he built his indie empire, why Special Effects is his best album to date, and more.
Special Effects is due out May 5.
