Tek (Smif-N-Wessun) | Interview

From Brooklyn, New York, Tek is a member of the duo Smif-N-Wessun and the hip hop collective Boot Camp Clik. Tek debuted on Black Moon’s 1993 album Enta Da Stage with his rhyming partner Steele. In 1994, Smif-N-Wessun released their debut single, “Bucktown”, which gave Brooklyn the slogan “Bucktown, home of the original gun clappers”. Smif-N-Wessun dropped their debut album, Dah Shinin’, in 1995, a release that is now considered a classic underground hip hop album. In 1997, Tek recorded a group album with the Boot Camp Clik, For The People, then followed in 1998 with a Cocoa Brovaz album, The Rude Awakening. In 2002, Boot Camp Clik released The Chosen Few and Smif-N-Wessun released their third album, Reloaded. Later that year, Tek released a street album, It Is What It Is. Boot Camp Clik’s third album was released in 2006, The Last Stand. Smif-N-Wessun’s most recent album, Monumental, was released in 2011 and produced by Pete Rock.
