Although he's best known as a solo artist, Christian rapper Tedashii made his debut in 2005 as a member of the 116 Clique, a group of artists associated with the Reach Records label. Lauded for his distinct, deep voice and versatile flow, he has issued a string of well-received solo LPs since his inaugural release.
In 2006, he made his solo debut with the album Kingdom People, followed a year later by the 116 Clique effort 13 Letters. 2009's Identity Crisis found him returning to his solo career and cracking Billboard's Top 200 album chart in the process. Blacklight, his solo album from 2011, also made the Top 100 along with topping the magazine's Christian Album Chart. In 2014, Tedashii released his fourth solo effort, Below Paradise, featuring guest spots from Andy Mineo and Britt Nicole. An EP, This Time Around, appeared in 2016, with the full-length effort Never Fold arriving in 2019. ~ David Jeffries
