"Worldwide Choppers" is the third single in Tech N9ne's eleventh album All 6's and 7's. The song is noted for its breakneck flows packing rhythmic, rapid-fire rap by the rappers.[1][2]

"Worldwide Choppers" produced by Michael Summers known as producer Seven, is a multilingual track that includes lyrics in English, Danish, Turkish. Turkish lyrics are by Turkish rapper Ceza and Danish lyrics by Danish rapper U$O. Other rappers taking part in the single are Busta Rhymes, Yelawolf, Twista, D-Loc, JL of B.Hood & Twisted Insane.

It was recorded with contributions from a number of locations, more specifically Kansas City, Missouri (JL), Kansas City, Kansas (D-Loc) Alabama (Yelawolf), Chicago (Twista), New York (Busta Rhymes), California (Twisted Insane) in addition to Turkey (Ceza) and Denmark (U$O).[2] The names of the rappers and their locations are introduced within the recording by name.

Tech N9ne and Yelawolf both claimed in interviews that a music video was being shot for the song, but the video never entered production. This was due to the difficulty of having such a large group of artists available to film at the same time.

Context[edit]

The word "chopper" relates to a type of fast-paced rap, a style of Midwest hip hop called Chopper. In the late 1990s, Tech N9ne popularized the Chopper style among his fan base, and from 2007 to 2011 released a number of songs in collaboration with other Chopper-style artists exclusively in this fast-paced style of rap,[3] including "Midwest Choppers", featuring Midwest rappers D-Loc, Dalima & Krizz Kaliko, in his 2007 album Misery Loves Kompany; "Midwest Choppers 2", featuring K-Dean & Krayzie Bone, in his 2009 album Sickology 101; and "Worldwide Choppers", featuring several American and international artists in the same style, in his 2011 album All 6's and 7's.[3]

The word helicopter refers to the rapid response time of helicopters as an analogy to fast-paced rap. Twista's lyrics in the song allude to this: "I'm finna be usin it as energy, watch how radiant I'ma be. Like a helicopter when the words fly."[4]

Chart Performance[edit]

The single debuted on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart at #4 effectively making it #104 in Billboard Hot 100 charts. It also appeared in the U.S. Billboard Heatseekers Songs chart at #15, becoming at the time, the biggest hit of U$O's, Ceza's, JL's, Yelawolf's and Twisted Insane's singles in the USA.
