KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City native, hip-hop artist and co-founder of Strange Music, Inc. Tech N9ne will be the drum honoree at Sunday's Chiefs game against the Chargers, the Chiefs announced Friday.
At the beginning of the 2019 season, the Chiefs introduced the GEHA Drum Deck.
Located in the upper level under the west scoreboard, it gives the pre-game tradition of banging a drum a new, permanent home.
Tech N9ne will get to beat the drum before the game as drum honoree.
Before the fourth quarter, this week's Tony Dipardo Spirit leader, Zeke Crozier, will bang the drum.
Crozier is a U.S. Army veteran, bottle-cap artist and founder of Happy-Cappin' LLC, the Chiefs said.
Also of note at Sunday's game, head coach Andy Reid's daughter, Crosby Reid, will sing the national anthem.
