American Tank is a multi talented artist, he is as entertaining a dancer as a singer, as important a songwriter as a producer. Tank was first noticed by Aaliyah for his hard work and was invited to perform vocals in her set. Soon after that, he was discovered by Blackground Records founder Barry Hankerson and his son Jomo, he was then signed to Blackground Records.
"I want people to feel rolled on when they hear me, I want them to feel completely taken over," explains Tank. With his perserverance in his music, he had spent years making his debut album. "FORCE OF NATURE", Tank's debut album is the result of his past years' hard work. Tank's popular single from the album, "Maybe I Deserve" is a song where he casts himself as the cheater, a man who has been stepping out on his girl longer than he'd like to admit. The story is more than a confession, it's the paranoia of projection, about a man prepared to forgive his woman for hurting him, the way he had hurt her.
Taiwanese TANK (呂建中), is a talented singer composer. TANK was said to be the next big thing after David Tao, Lee Hom and Jay Chou for his talent in composing songs, singing and dancing.

Besides that, he was also known through his songs, 三國戀 (Romance in the 3 Kingdom) and 給我你的愛 (Give Me Your Love) which both are the ending themes for two famous Taiwan drama series. TANK also is the spokesperson for computer game, "激戰" (GuildWars) and composed a song for the game.
