However, Hi-Tek's debut, Hi-Teknology, should change that. While Tek collaborates mostly with many familiar faces, he adds a few new wrinkles to his organic compositions, roughing up his trusted MPC-3000 on Cormega's "All I Need Is You" and for the sinister "The Illest It Gets," which features Black Moon's Buckshot. Yet, the heart and soul of Hi-Teknology resides with those who Tek has already developed a solid working relationship with.
