Teknikal (born October 8, 1989 in Toronto, Canada) began rapping at the age of 13 and has managed to grab the attention of many listeners worldwide.
Ever since the young age of 4, Tek showed great interest in music so it was no surprise to family and friends when he chose to pursue the career of a rap star. Growing up, he would spend time listening to both his father's and uncle's old tapes, which consisted of mostly 80's and 90's rock. It wasn't until years later when Tek would discover and learn to love hip hop.
Tek was in the ninth grade when he started writing and recording his own music. At first he was shy, and hesitated to let people know about his dreams of becoming an established recording artist, but eventually he grew out of his shell and was able to showcase his true talent. Although by this time people respected him as an emcee, it wasn't until March of 2006 when Tek started getting serious about his music. This is when he travelled to Chicago where he recorded his debut mixtape, "The Franchize". The mixtape was a success, a real eye-opener for anyone who had doubts about the young rapper's ability to make quality music.
Since then, Tek has appeared on many unsigned hype mixtapes, including DJ Green Lantern's "MySpace Invasion Vol. 2" which was released in December of 2007.
He is currently working on his second solo mixtape, Reloaded, and to date has opened for artists such as Belly, Choclair, Danny Fernandes, Karl Wolf, Pharoahe Monch and Slaughterhouse. Stay tuned for more great things to come.
