How Tech N9ne Connected With the Doors for 'Strange 2013'

"I love how this video is schizophrenic, just like I can be at times," Tech N9ne tells Rolling Stone. "The emotions I let loose in this song were eating me alive. I really owe it to Seven [a.k.a. producer Michael Summers], Tyler and Liz for helping to get this out of me."

"Love 2 Dislike Me" is just one of a number of collaborations found on Something Else, along with hip-hop and rock talent including Cee Lo Green, Wiz Khalifa, Serj Tankian of System of a Down, Kendrick Lamar and Ray Manzarek of the Doors. It comes on the heels of the project's first extract "B.I.T.C.H." – an acronym for "Breaking in to Colored Houses" – which featured  T. Pain.
