Detsl aka Le Truk
Detsl (Russian: Децл [sometimes as ДеЦл], real name Kirill Tolmatskiy [Кирилл Толмацкий]; born July 22, 1983, son of the famous russian hip-hop/r'nb producer) is a Russian rapper and hip hop artist. He graduated in Switzerland and the British International School in Moscow. He made his first live appearance at the Adidas StreetBall Challenge in Moscow with the song "Friday" ("Пятница"). The first music video was made for the song "Tears" ("Слёзы"). In 2000, Detsl has made his debut in the largely underground and unknown Russian rap scene with the album "Who Are You" ("Кто ты?"). He also took part in a Pepsi advertising campaign. In 2001, he released his second album, "Street Fighter". The lyrics for his first two albums were written by Vlad Valov (also known as (Russian: ШеFF). After working for 3 years, Detsl released "Aka Le Truk", his third record, in 2004. The name is also referring to the fact that he somewhat changed his performing name to "Le Truk". This album showcases growth and a major shift in style for Detsl, as he stopped working with SheFF and had more freedom and indepencence with the material. Detsl's fourth and latest album "MosVegas 2012" has been released on January 4, 2008.
