Veteran rapper Tech N9ne kicked off an epic North American tour last week that will featuring an incredible 82 shows in 85 days throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The tour celebrates the release of Tech N9ne's newest album "All 6's And 7's," which will drop on June 7 (6/7, as in "All 6's And 7's"). The Canadian leg of the tour, called "Canuck The Industry," got underway May 10 in Montreal and runs for fifteen days straight as Tech N9ne and crew work their way west to British Columbia.

On May 26, the domestic campaign kicks off in Seattle as "ALL 6'S AND 7'S - THE TOUR" thunders across the U.S. for 10 non-stop weeks. Joining Tech N9ne on stage will be fellow Strange Music (a label Tech N9ne co-founded with Travis O'Guin in 2000) artists Jay Rock, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Big Scoob, and new signees Stevie Stone and ˇMayday!

The tour seems ripe with potential for some surprise guests ,as the roster of featured artists on "All 6's And 7's" includes Snoop Dogg, B.o.B, E-40, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Yelawolf, Stokley, Chino Moreno & Stephen Carpenter, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, T-Pain, and Lil Wayne (a collaboration hashed out during a visit Tech paid to Lil Wayne on Riker's Island).

Wearing his signature face paint, Tech N9ne plans to deliver 90-plus minutes of high-energy performance each night in his attempt to claim the title of hardest working artist in hip-hop. As Tech attests in a press release: "We will not rest until the whole world knows our story."
