Actor Paul Rudd isn't the only Kansas City celebrity reveling in the Royals' long-awaited return to the World Series. Another of Kansas City's famous entertainers — albeit in a very different field — was front and center at Game 1 of the World Series.

Tech N9ne, the rapper who very proudly hails from Kansas City, was on national TV all night, because he was sitting right behind home plate. He was dressed in all black Royals gear, sitting just a few seats down from Marlins Man.

Tech N9ne marveled at his view on Instagram, but noted that he paid $6,000 for his ticket. His Strange Music business partner Travis O'Guin was there with him, as was fellow K.C. emcee Krizz Kaliko. That's a cool $18,000 in World Series tickets.

Here's the video he posted. Warning: He says a swear word.

If you're not familiar with Tech N9ne, he's an "underground" rapper with a cult following. He's not signed to a major record label, rather he founded and runs his own record label, Strange Music. Obviously, business is going pretty well over at Strange Music.
