Bio

Toronto born emcee Speck stormed out of the womb and has been hustling ever since. Uprooted several times under the age of ten, he settled in Thorncliffe Park, (a small urban utopia in the Don Mills & Eglinton region of the city). His experiences there would come to shape the mind that makes the music.

Growing up, Speck was constantly tormented by the ever-blurring line between what was right and what was real. Raised by a hard-working father, and a church going mother, as well as a not-so-by-the-book surrogate family of the streets, Speck is able to address the world from an impartial perspective, while also forming some very staunch opinions on life, society, government and relationships.

While true to his short-comings, he maintains an almost obscene air of conceit. This "My faults are perfect" mentality makes his music and persona both desirable, and relatable. His confidence is enigmatic, his style is unique, his hustle is real, and his name is Speck Nasty.

In 2001, Speck teamed up with J. Steidman of Synaptic Gap Productions to release the "Rebirth" EP under the alias J-Spitz. The effort garnered moderate success, and the first single "Mantis Love" received praise from critics. After the release of "Rebirth" Speck went into recluse to somewhat reinvent himself. This hiatus would come to be known as the birth of Speck Nasty. In 2004 Speck re-emerged to collaborate with Chuckles D. Glutton of House of Blooze, to headline the Rhyme and Punishment tour.

Speck was a 2007 nominee for Best Hip Hop Act at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. 2008 marked the release of his promotional EP “Burden of Proof”. He also Executive Produced the Stazz Inc. compilation “Red Carpet Effect” in the same year; which is available on iTunes and other music retail sites. Speck is currently working on his first full length release entitled “Lab Rat”.
