“Tneek smashes it in her new video – once again showing herself to be a great role model for this and the next generation of young women. Demonstrating true integrity and dignity, holding firm to her identity in a world and culture that constantly tries to steal it.” Jamie G, Contributing Writer.
And Tneek knows all too well of the wider UK scene, having previously nabbed big artist features with prominent established urban acts such as Chip (formerly Chipmunk), Scorcher, Wretch 32, DoubleS (Marvell), Fugative,Shaun Emmanuel and Artcha. She then released her first mixtape ‘Music is Me’ as her introduction into ‘the game’.
Many opportunities followed, such as features in various music videos including Casso Blax’s UK All-Stars remix of his underground hit ‘Why You Clocking My Face’ (featuring Dot Rotten, Black The Ripper, G Frsh, Flirta D, Boya D and Sas killa) and the Drum & Bass remix on Taner Hassan’s track ‘My Space’. After some of these videos gained constant video airplay on the well-liked website GRM Daily and music TV channels, Flava TV and Channel AKA, there was anticipation for Tneek to release more of her own body of work.
After many personal life-changing events, Tneek grew apart from the project she was working on then ‘No Implants, No Facelifts’ and decided against releasing it as she felt the content didn’t represent her opinions of life and beliefs at that time. Instead, she re-dedicated her life to God and decided to follow the Christian faith with a fresh slate.
With all the career developments and the guaranteed success she would’ve gained in the secular scene had she carried on, it was a painfully difficult but necessary decision for Tneek to make.
All of these in mind, makes the current accomplishments a much bigger issue for this talented female who also has interests in radio presenting, public speaking & business development. Jamie G also added, “Tneek is on point lyrically and with a flow that proves that while the quality of secular hip hop may be on the decline, Christian Hip Hop just keeps on going up and up. Can’t wait to hear more.”
With a track that could be about addressing the huge disparity in numbers and success levels of Christian male to female rappers as much as it could be about encouraging others to rise above situations – get your level up, Tneek has given us something to think on and bounce to.
Naming few off a massive list, the Lauren Hill, Andy Mineo, Lecrae, Missy Elliott inspired artist stated online, that her love for music was birthed from a young age when listening to influential female rappers of her time, who broke the mould and put their own individual stamp on the game.
With ‘Level Up’ as the first video release off her upcoming album, Tneek may so far this year may have made the biggest imprint of any female rapper on the UK CHH scene and she seems to be just getting started.
