Stuck in a situation, feeling so impatient I’m sick & tired of waiting, arguing and debating, complaining and pointing fingers, but the blames on you. You got the world up in your hands, now what you gon do? “
Montreal based artists L.Teez was born in 1995 into a family that nurtured and surrounded him with music and creativity. Born of a French-Canadian father of Algerian/ Kabyle ancestry and a Canadian mother of Jamaican and Chinese origins, Lee Amayes Terki has evolved in a cosmopolitan universe, one that was more than favourable in the development of his musical identity. Lee’s father, Mustapha Terki has been himself involved in the music scene for the past 30 years, overseeing many events in Montreal and France as artistic director, promoter and producer. One might say that he’s bathed in culture since childhood.
FR: Né de père canado-français de souche kabyle algérienne et de mère canadienne aux origines jamaïcaines et chinoises, Lee Amayes Terki a toujours évolué dans un univers cosmopolite, on ne peut plus propice à sa destinée musicale. Son père étant directeur artistique, promoteur et producteur d’événements, son enfance est baignée de musique. Vient l’adolescence et ses secousses majeures, le hip hop s’avère rapidement un baume aux blessures personnelles ou familiales, aussi un exutoire aux exigences académiques devenues pour lui un carcan
