While Tech's unorthodox fashion sense and dark subject matter have historically made black hip-hop audiences hesitant, white fans who are used to heavy metal and horrorcore have naturally gravitated towards his music. He's appeared at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos for the last three years, and he's performing again at the 2010 festival this weekend. Tech clearly loves his fans, even if the lack of acceptance from black folks does seem to bother him. The confusing racial politics have provided fodder for some of Tech's best songs, including the dramatic fan favorite "Come Gangsta."
