Tarik Robinson is the government name of veteran Calgary emcee and producer Teekay of the Dragon Fli Empire. Due to an excess of artists sharing his 'rap name', Robinson has taken it back to his birth certificate. And it makes sense, as "Rotations" gives the listener an honest glimpse into the creative and colorful imagination of this respected artist as he explores themes like purpose, joy, growth, struggle and possibility within the cycles of life.

"It's been a minute y'all, I'm still in it y'all"
This defiant statement from Willie D of the Geto Boys is scratched to perfection by DJ Cosm in the hook of "Still In It", a new single by Canadian emcee/producer Tarik Robinson (Teekay of Dragon Fli Empire). It also frames the content of the song, where 3 veteran emcees of the Calgary hip hop scene (who all have roots in Nova Scotia) put everyone on notice that they are still a force to be reckoned with. "Still In It" is the second single from Tarik Robinson's upcoming album "Rotations" which releases November 12th, 2021 on Makebelieve Records.
