With visions as grand as Gandhi, and spoken words as revolutionary as Martin L. King Jr., The Arkitek is more than a hip-hop artist, but an educational leader, fighting to enlighten today’s youth through the power of music. With each poetic rhyme, The Arkitek consciously delivers messages that are both thought provoking and captivating. The Arkitek is undeniably the voice of the future.
Born Nicholas Lee St. Claire Griffith on June 4th 1989 in Brampton Ontario, Arkitek has grown from a hip-hop enthusiast to a conscious motivator. After loosing his mother at only 3 months old to be raised by his father, Arkitek fought through a lengthy stage of rebellion. Finding light in the darkness he had become entrapped by, Arkitek was accepted to college and began his path of enlightenment. After being introduced to conspiracy videos, Arkitek became a radical thinker himself. It wasn’t long before Arkitek discovered his purpose: to educate his generation, who has become blinded by a society carried by a mass media illusion.
Now, alongside his cousin Brookz, The Arkitek stands as Co. Founder of One Umbrella, a corporation catered to the development of young talent. Arkitek views One Umbrella as a solution to the ignorance of today’s youth and as an educational outlet. Through his captivating lyrics and in-your-face deliverance, The Arkitek conveys a message of awakening. The Arkitek encourages his listeners to recognize the truths of the working world, and to begin to take responsibility for our actions as a collective people.
With singles such as “The Realest Real,” The Arkitek fans can expect nothing less than honest, insightful lyrics backed by captivating production. The Arkitek is bound to invoke thought and encourage mental growth. In a society that has been made to feel powerless under the government, The Arkitek hopes to breathe life into his listeners, and to awaken the strength of their being.
“I am only giving you the natural mystics. This is more than advanced and gifted. The answers are encrypted when the masses pass the masters scriptures.” – Arkitek
