Independent hip-hop powerhouse Tech N9ne will drop his highly-anticipated new album, Special Effects, on May 4th via Strange Music. Now, Tech N9ne has unleashed the metallic side of his persona with the brand new anthem, entitled “Wither,” featuring none other than Corey Taylor, powerhouse vocalist of Platinum and Gold chart-topping heavy metal groups Slipknot and Stone Sour.

Corey Taylor has often publicly praised Tech and his approach to both hip-hop and heavy music. “Working with Tech was a no-brainer,” states Taylor. “When I heard the music for ‘Wither,’ I knew the two of us would make something dark and crazy. The slow burn in the music is awesome – his band is great and the performance is incredible. People are gonna shit!”
