EXCLUSIVE: Hi-Tek Planning “Hi-Teknology 4: Ohio Player” Album

(AllHipHop News) Cincinnati, Ohio producer Hi-Tek recently spoke with AllHipHop.com, elaborating on his upcoming project set to release in 2013 called Hi-Teknology 4: Ohio Player.

The producer of some of Black Star’s hits like “Definition,” “K.O.S. (Determination),” “Respiration,” explained that the Ohio Player project that he has been working on is loosely based on his own career in the industry.

“The next time I put out an album its going to be right,” Hi-Tek told AllHipHop.com. “In 2013 I’m going to drop a single, put out some music, and I’m getting my new website together Hi-TekMusic.com, the next album is going to be called, ‘Hi-Teknology: Ohio Player,’ it’s going to be an addition to the Hi-Teknology series and it’s kind of based on me being a person from Ohio, puttin it down, strong with the music and it’s ode and a dedication to the OGs, and its something to inspire those from where I’m from because so much music has come from here.

“My whole new project is about 50 percent done and I’m just trying to find distribution for it right now. Thats really my main focus right now, just getting this album together. I recently did some stuff with [David] Banner, and I’m just trying to develop some new talent,” Hi-Tek explained to AllHipHop.com.

Hi-Tek also spoke positively about the range of rappers and artists from Ohio that have gained nationwide recognition from MGK, to Stalley, to Kid Cudi, to King Chip and others.

“When you hear King Chip, you hear the essence of a true rapper. His voice and his flow reminded me of a Cleveland version of Biggie and we speak often and connect often, Chip is just dope and I’m waiting to see when he really puts out that classic album. He’s definitely one of the best that I’ve worked with, Kid Cudi is amazing to me, he’s like a Midwest Mos Def,” Hi-Tek explained.

When asked about MGK, Hi-Tek said he looks forward to working with MGK on a remix to one of his songs in the future.

“Yea he’s cool I know they rep the state hard and I want them to do it in the music too, I want to get him on the remix to something, it’s whatever, but I’m definitely proud of the him and the new artists coming up out here in Ohio man because I know how hard it is to come up out of here. Its hard to break the Midwest monkey off your back because you are so far from the industry’s big citys. Being from a small city your talent is so raw and a lot of cats from the Midwest are not used to that big city and the major label routine and that major push, but its a lot of talent out here ready to be recognized. New York embraced me a long time ago, I love Cali, but I’m able to come back home because I’m a Cincinnati boy at heart all day. There’s a lot of talent here.”
