Reflection Eternal’s Hi-Tek Joins 9th Wonder’s Soul Council

Cincinnati, Ohio’s Hi-Tek has been a major player in some of the most influential Hip-Hop albums of the last 20 years. A onetime Rawkus Records artist, the producer/DJ worked extensively on Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, in addition to Common and Sadat X’s “1-9-9-9,” Big L’s “Still Here,” and Phife Dawg’s “Flawless.” Since then, Tek released three Top 200-charting solo albums, and two critically-acclaimed works with Talib Kweli as Reflection Eternal.

Hi-Tek now has been reported to join 9th Wonder’s Soul Council. This will bring the Mood alum to a team that includes 9th, Khrysis, Eric G., Nottz, and others. Yesterday (November 8), the Jamla Records founder announced the addition, via Instagram:

This month, Tek worked on INDIE 500, the debut release from the conglomerate label of the same name—started by 9th, Kweli, and another onetime Rawkus artist, Pharoahe Monch. Previously, Tek also worked with Little Brother on 2008’s Getback, when the group did not include 9th. He produced the song “Step It Up.”

Hi-Tek has also worked extensively with platinum artists including Snoop Dogg, Game, and 50 Cent.

Do you think Soul Council, as a unit, will begin getting credits on key albums?
