Growing up in a Reno, Nevada project, hip hop artist Teez discovered music when he found himself tapping into Tupac and Bob Marley’s music libraries. With this discovery, Teez soon found his voice at the age of fourteen. The ability to write lyrics began to flow out effortlessly at the time and it hasn’t stopped since. Teez has since released several mixtape songs on SoundCloud. In 2016, he revealed the first installment of the KILLSHIT mixtape series, hosted by the highly respected DJ Carisma.
Honoring his Tongan roots through the stage name Teez, Taholo Vainuku is prepping the release of R.E.N.O (Real Everything No Ops). In his debut album (out September 27th via Mensch House Records), Teezhas been focused on making sure his lyrical style and development within the work are at its strongest level.
Today, Teez is dropping the latest single from the upcoming release “Drop Interlude” feat. Glasses Malone and Shaxe Oriah. “It was real dope! I was excited to get 2 heavy hitters on one record,” Teez says. “Shaxe is one of my favorite Tongan rappers and I been a fan of Glasses since Beach Cruiser. I sent them both the record and they both was feeling it then we cooked it up. Came out real dope, real west coast certified.”
