"And Tending Bike's a whole ass executive now" ― Lil Squeaky upon hearing Bike being a BDR executive

Marc Varela, better known by his stage name Tending Bike, and formerly known as Big Lil, and Tending Bike Leaf as well as various other stage names, is a Canadian rapper who was first signed to Flex Entertainment from early 2019 to mid 2020. He is known for singles such as "Glizzy", "Side Effects," and "Backseat" which became his first Flex Entertainment Hot 100 number one single, as well as his deep and distinct voice and unique vocal inflections. Fans have compared him to rappers like Blueface and Pop Smoke.

He was initially kicked out of the label in July, and he then joined CRZRecords (later Billion Dollar Records). He became an executive in Billion Dollar Records, but later resigned the position and left the label.

On September 20th 2020 he was signed back to Flex Entertainment after the release of his single "Backseat" which was seen by many to be a very fun and enjoyable song that contained the Flex spirit despite him not being at the label when the song dropped.

In late 2020, a number of old Tending Bike songs from his Big Lil days were leaked, including "To the Moon" featuring $LUMP, "Crip With a Sticc" featuring Lil Mosquito Disease and J1D, and most importantly, "Side Effects" featuring Lil Kolya and Lil PP, which quickly gained notoriety in the label and received a surprise remix featuring Lil Squeaky, Lil Mosquito Disease, and Yung Lambo.

On January 17th 2021 Bike along with Flex Entertainment executive Yung Lambo started the collective "Biker Gang".

A day later the collective released "Biker Gang Sings The Classics" inspired by Lil Squeaky's April 2020 live mixtape "Squeaky Sings The Classics" the project even had an appearance from the greatest rapper of the century Lil Boy.

In January, Bike released a remix to "Backseat," which featured fellow Flex Entertainment rapper Leggoland. The song was a surprise hit, accumulating over a thousand plays on SoundCloud within a week of releasing. A highly controversial and negatively received remix, it immediately went to number one on the Flex Entertainment Hot 100. Despite the remix's negative reception, many saw this as a big victory for Bike, an artist who was once shunned from the label but was now on top of the charts.

On March 12th 2021, Bike released his long awaited debut studio album "Tha Shop". The album contained features from Hood Guy, Lil Sperm, Young Seagull, Yung Lambo, LEGGOLAND and Lil Squeaky.

He left the label on April 23rd 2021 but signed back on May 3rd 2021, about 8 days later he made the decision to depart from the label for good and has no intentions on returning anytime soon.

As of now he is working on his second studio album "The Life Of Bike" the album is expected to be released in the middle of fall 2021.
