He is best known for his work with Talib Kweli on his Reflection Eternal album and on Black Star.

Hi-Teknology3 is the third installment of Hi-Tek's Hi-Teknology series. Tek, who made a name in the 90's via his collaborations with Talib Kweli and Mos Def, has always used his albums as a springboard for budding talents but Hi-Teknology 3 takes the tradition to a new level. The album is geared towards shining light on today’s most promising newbies with help from some yet-to-be-named veterans via Babygrande Records. It has also been released in the U.K.
