Tech N9ne releases the short film for his track “Levitation,” featuring Navé Monjo, off his most recent studio album, Planet. Directed by Morgan Cooper, the short film follows a boxer’s journey and his determination to succeed for the love of his family. It mirrors Tech’s unmatched determination in the music world; and the love he feels for and from his fans.
Tech N9ne’s lyrical supremacy and appreciation for love shines through on this track as he raps over ethereal sonics about how the adulation he gets from his supporters makes him feel like he’s floating.
“I feel like David Blaine when I’m on that stage,” Tech N9ne reveals. “But the love I get when I’m on the same level as them, like at the meet and greets, when they’re not looking up to me and they’re looking straight at me saying that my music kept them alive, that my music helped them through their mother’s death, that my music helped them through suicidal thoughts and is the reason they’re here now, that’s beautiful. When they say that what I went through with my mom lessened their pain to know that somebody that they look up to is going through the same thing, it makes me feel like I’m levitating. They hold me up high, put me up high because I can save lives, like a doctor or a paramedic. That makes me feel like I’m levitating, the people and their stories of how I helped them through life has me floating.”
