It was at the age of 9 after hearing Special Ed’s classic “I Got It Made” that Vancouver’s Jeff Spec (named “Chris” by his parents) knew that Hip Hop would always be a part of his life. Shortly after, while still in elementary school, Jeff found himself in the school hallways freestyling with close friends, and performing at any talent show that he could get into. Now, well over a decade later, he has released more than 15 albums and a variety of singles, and performed in a wide variety of markets in Canada, the United States, and Japan. He and his crew, City Planners which includes Moka Only, Ishkan, Sichuan, and Sweet G, have gained a high degree of notoriety for their D-I-Y, grassroots Hip Hop mentality, and are synonymous with the Vancouver independent music scene. In 2002 Jeff signed his first international record contract with the independent label Day By Day Entertainment (home to underground legend MF Grimm), for his album “Dark City”. The album enjoyed a degree of critical acclaim and introduced Jeff to many more listeners than he had ever previously reached. Later that year, Jeff’s music caught some ears at Universal Urban, and in early 2003, his single “Never Can Say Goodbye” was released by the major label on a radio-only 12” single. He recently dropped his “Sneakerboxx” LP and also just released a new video from the LP, the track entitled “Stop”. Jeff Spec is and will keep grinding and for that we have chosen him as our Featured Artist Of The Week.
