Less than a year after the release his first official album, “Politics As Usual”, Termanology returns with “Time Machine”, through his own ST. Records label. It’s been a busy year for Term. Since the release of his well-received debut, which featured production by DJ Premier, Hi-Tek and Pete Rock, Term has toured extensively around the globe. He opened for Method Man and Redman on the nationwide “Still High” tour and headlined his own 2009 European tour.

He will be one of the headliners at the prestigious Hip Hop Kemp festival in the Czech Republic alongside Method Man, Lady Sovereign and La Coka Nostra.

Term was raised in the post-industrial, predominantly Latino city of Lawrence, MA. The half-white, half-Puerto Rican MC constantly traveled between Boston and NY in pursuit of his dream, and in 2002 Term released his first 12-inch. Through his alliance with influential mixtape DJ Statik Selektah, Term began earning the respect of Boston’s hip hop scene with several highly acclaimed 12″ singles. At the onset of 2006, Term’s big break came when DJ Premier blessed him with one of his signature, scratch-laden beats. “Watch How It Go Down” instantly became an underground classic and Termanology appeared on hip hop’s international radar. The conscious hood anthem garnered the earnest MC tons of praise, landing him in The Source’s Unsigned Hype and XXL’s Show and Prove columns.
