Since recording his first verse at the age of 15, Namek, born Joseph Huicochea, May 22nd 1989, in West Covina, CA has always had a passion for the art of rhyme. Influenced by artists such as The Last Emperor, DJ Quik, Slum Village, Guru, Kurupt & Abstract Rude versatility on the mic has grown to become a seemingly natural attribute for him. From rocking backyard parties circa 05’/06’ to performing in legit venues & collaborating with certain musical influences, the evolution of Namek has strongly shown.
Teaming up with Chamber Records in Nov 2007, Namek has managed to hold 6 projects under his belt. (“Dynamek Delivery” solo album 2009, “The Wait Is Over” w/ Eyedealr, Cawz & Frankie V [Concept Artists] 2009, “There & Back” w/ Arkyve 2011, “This Is A Nams World” solo album 2012 “Transit” w/ Arkyve, AVI & Spok Beats 2012 & “Namifest Destiny” self produced compilation 2014)
Joining one of his musical influences Abstract Rudes (Keep The Feel Ent.) in 2013 has definitely helped mold the Namek brand & has opened the doors to plenty of other prosperous opportunities within this La indie music scene.
