“Lil Rekk is only getting more popular with each video that he drops and while he is sitting atop the New York underground scene at the moment it is only a matter of time until he is pushed into the mainstream’s focus.” – Lyrical Lemonade
Born on October 2, 2000, Tyreke Curry is a professional rapper originating from Philadelphia.
Commonly known in the music industry as Lil Rekk, Tyreke started his career at 17. The now
20-year-old artist released his debut mixtape The Graduation, in 2018. His bass-throbbing
single off of this mixtape Rock Out garnered a lot of attention both from teenagers and adults.
In the same year, Lil Rekk released his music video for Rock Out, with Brodinski as producer. It
had more than one million views on Youtube. Three months after releasing the music video for
Rock Out, Rekk released his Drip music video which had over 250,000 views.
Lil Rekk signed to Platinum Recording Artist A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Highbridge The Label
and went on to perform in several venues all over the country at the start of his career. He
would get the crowd moving despite his small stature― something most teenagers could not do
During his early days as a rapper, Lil Rekk was juggling high school and music. It was tough,
but Lil Rekk graduated and started college after his debut mixtape came out. He draws his
music inspiration from several artists including Drake, Lil Wayne, Boogie, Lil Durk, and Lil Baby.
He also listens to music from the 70s and 80s, combining a classic R&B and Soul sound with
modern day Hip-Hop.
In 2019, Lil Rekk released Prada U, which garnered over 200,000 views. Late last year he
released a music video for Manhattan Vibes. It is approaching 2 million views on YouTube and
