Creating music that binds and connects people on a different scale is no longer the goal of every music artist nowadays. However, a few artists stand out because they remain deeply connected to the calling and make sure they create music that fans and audiences can relate to.
The Arlington Texas duo, also known as Heretic Klick, are among the greatest rappers of the last decade while also among the most understated. Dubbed as the gangstas, the clowns and the heretics, they have established themselves in the industry with their densely packed and graphic raps that are light-averse and complex. They have given the term “underground” proper meaning with their deep connection and dedication to the craft as musicians who find keeping a low profile an inherent point of the mission.
While not living for the perks and benefits of being in the mainstream spotlight, Heretick Klick is known for their lyrical strength and high-quality relatable songs. Their entrance into the music scene dates back to the late 90s and early 2000s, when Hip-hop was at its fertile stages. They began by rapping for fun at house parties and backyard cookouts to showcase their abilities and creativity.
Heretic Klick is composed of talented brothers, Marcus Wicked-T Tamez and Eddie Sin-X Tamez, two individuals who want to do things their way and make an impact with their choice, even if their choices are different from other people’s.
Over the last few decades, the group has established itself as a duo that is able to compete favorably in the music industry. Operating under their record label, Rabble Rouza Records, which they established in 2012, Heretic Klick has made a mark with its artistry and notable music projects. The group’s first studio album was a mixtape-style record called S.O.D or Songs of the Darkness, which sold 10,000 album copies within its first week. Heretic Klick has been on a progressive trajectory ever since, giving the independent musicians enough fuel to continue their drive. They pour their souls into the music to deliver quality and rich content to their fans.
Heretic Klick’s approach to music is all about creating music that stands the test of time and being known to be one of the “Greatest MCs to grace the world.” The duo’s music has a feel-good literature vibe, with well-written lyrics and precise composition. Every song released by Heretic Klick tells a story and gives their listeners an insight into their journey. “Having nothing given to us gave us everything we needed,” Marcus Wicked-T Tamez said. “We experienced obstacles, challenges and doubts, but we never cowered and stuck to our convictions that we could become big names in specific quarters in the entertainment scene. Give us a beat, and we’ll give you rhymes,” he added.
Having featured and collaborated with other reputable names like Rittz, Jarren Benton, and Gawne, Heretic Klick has set their eyes on the prize to make an impact in the music world and leave indelible marks on their audience’s minds. Over the next few years, the goals for Heretic Klick include releasing critically acclaimed albums, rising to the top of notable charts from the underground scene, and inspiring many underground artists. Despite their rugged upbringing and criminal pasts, Heretic Klick came to life as a force to reckon with in the music world with their own distinct style.
