Hometown hero Tech N9ne celebrates his success at the Midland

Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko had just launched into “KC Tea” on Wednesday when actor Nick Cannon and Strange Music co-founder Travis O’Guin strode onto the stage of the Midland theater. They presented the musicians with gold records certifying sales of more than 500,000 units of the bacchanal song “Caribou Lou.” The formal recognition of the milestone attained by the Kaliko and Tech N9ne composition is just the latest in a long series of achievements by the Kansas City-based Tech N9ne and his colleagues.
