Chaotik is an aspiring hip hop artist from Montreal, Canada. This is where he was both born and raised, more specifically in the vibrant Haitian community of “Montreal-Nord”. With both his parents being both Haitian and Muslim, which is a rare combination, this has played as a strong influence in his music. Musically, Chaotik’s influences came from hip hop artists from the 90’s like A Tribe Called Quest, 2pac, Nas, Az, The Lox, Notorious B.I.G, Children of The Corn, Big Pun etc… He was inspired to actually pursue music by his eldest sister Vera; an RnB singer who was a member of a local hip hop group called “Cypher Strong” when he was growing up. The first introduction Chaotik made on the local scene was in the year 2007 with a group called “Red Blockz Cartel” which consisted of “YG” , “Lo Key” and of course “Chaotik”. Their first release was a “freestyle mixtape” called “The Movement Begins…”. He later decided to pursue his solo career releasing his solo “mixtape” “The Chaos Theory”. After this last release Chaotik took a hiatus from music and got caught up in the “Street Life”. After encountering some problems and being put in “life-changing” situations, he decided to deliver a more positive message in his music. He began to understand the power of words and the influence his music may have on his community. Chaotik was reborn with the release of his “Back To The Basics” mixtape hosted by Dj Simon Sez. This release really showed a more positive side and also brought us back to the golden age of hip hop. His delivery throughout was consistent with the theme of taking us “Back to The Basics” or to the roots of where this all started for him. With the release of his latest project “Poetically Chaotik” he gives the “best of both worlds” combining potent lyrical content with a smooth “90’s” flow on some new age beats. Chaotik shows originality and versatility by challenging himself to rap over beats that the average hip hop artist wouldn’t normally be drawn towards. This is definitely an artist you want to keep on your radar because he is very innovative and has star qualities.
