Born in India, Chin Injeti moved to Canada at the tender age of five. His influences early in his childhood varied, but also included his father singing Telugu songs, a South Indian language.
After being diagnosed with polio and confined to a wheelchair for many years, Injeti spent years listening to everything from Motown to hard rock. He took up playing bass and guitar and discovered hip-hop to be his true love. In the early '90s, the musician acted as a producer for Maestro Fresh Wes and other Canadian hip-hop artists. In 1994, Injeti joined Bass Is Base, a Canadian hip-hop and soulful trio that also included Ivana Santilli. The group earned various Juno Awards and MuchMusic video awards. After the group broke up in 1997, Injeti returned to producing and writing with the likes of Craig Northey and Dave Kershaw. In 2001, he released his debut album, Day Dreaming. He has toured around the world and shared the stage with Busta Rhymes, the Roots, Ziggy Marley, and A Tribe Called Quest, among others. He also remixed the song "Pinch Me" for the Barenaked Ladies. ~ Jason MacNeil, Rovi
