Biography

With a newly growing presence of hip hop coming out of Hampton Roads, one could only imagine an artist still sticking to the art of the genre while maintaining and balancing an almost commercial appeal that can seemingly break into the market. Meet Intalek (pron. "intellect") a Virginia Beach, VA staple that possesses just that. With a knack for witty, easy flowing lyricism, story telling ability, and overall raw talent, Intalek has shown growth since dropping his first ever mixtape back in 2006. With 8 mixtapes and 3 albums, including a successful internationally released album titled "Lives and Vibes," Intalek is now armed and ready to keep a steady flow of his music in the stream services of hip hop fans. Throughout his budding career, the two time nominated Norfolk Veer Magazine best hip hop artist has performed at colleges and universities along the East Coast, performing at festivals like Shaggfest, Localpalooza and Artistree, opening up for artists like KRS-One, Mos Def, Wu Tang Clan, Timbaland and Missy Elliot, Mr. Cheeks, Rah Digga and Nottz, and Rapsody. His cosigns span from not only his area code and beyond but also Grammy winning producers like Bink and Chad Hugo, world renowned DJ pioneer DJ Jazzy Jeff, and artists such as Wax, Dayne Jordan, and Skillz who most recently featured Intalek on his 2015 album 'Made In Virginia.' With a still growing fanbase and talent alike, Intalek is prepared to push his Aspire to Inspire brand and show the world that hip hop still exists in the 757.
