Info:Jonek from Edmonton, Alberta became hooked on hip hop in Poland in 1999. He is is born and raised in Canada. But lived in Poland from 1992 to 1999.

That's where the MC met his wife, and got into hip hop. The first hip hop he listened to was Polish, and so Jonek wrote his first rhymes in Polish. He moved back to Canada to start high school in 1999. This was also the year he started writing English raps.

Jonek received a nomination at the 29th Annual Covenant Awards 2007 of the Gospel Music Association Canada (GMA) for:
- Rap/Hip Hop Song Of The Year: The Music
- Rap/Hip Hop Album Of The Year: Inukshuk : Pointing In The Right Direction

His first recording was a mixtape in 2003. The MC released his debut album entitled "Inukshuk" in August 2006.

Jonek states about the title of his debut album: "An Inukshuk is a "rock person", that Inuit people used to place in areas lacking landmarks. They served a few purposes, but mainly were used to point to things like good hunting, shelter, etc. The album concept is exactly that: standing as a landmark to point people in the right direction."
