Over the past decade, Ohio producer/emcee Hi-Tek has crafted countless acclaimed beats for some of Hip Hop’s most iconic emcees. Now, in a recent interview with AllHipHop, the Reflection Eternal producer announces that he has a new album in the works.

Hi-Tek revealed that he is currently working on his fourth solo album, titled Hi-Teknology: Ohio Player. Although he has no set date for the project, he explained that the LP is about 50% complete and will have its first single ready to drop in 2013.

“The next time I put out an album it’s going to be right,” he said. “In 2013 I’m going to drop a single, put out some music, and I’m getting my new website together Hi-TekMusic.com, the next album is going to be called, Hi-Teknology: Ohio Player, it’s going to be an addition to the Hi-Teknology series and it’s kind of based on me being a person from Ohio, puttin it down, strong with the music and it’s ode and a dedication to the OGs, and its something to inspire those from where I’m from because so much music has come from here…my whole new project is about 50 percent done and I’m just trying to find distribution for it right now. That’s really my main focus right now, just getting this album together.”
