"Lightning in a bottle"...Is the term that best describes North Carolina hip hop artist Caktuz [pronounced Cactus]. This country strange fruit has been tearing down stages and walls from NYC to the UK, pushing his infectious brand of music & art on to the world. An intense performer and profound lyricist, Caktuz's music is an authentic original hip hop sound that blends afro-punk, alternative, soul and trunk rattling street music genres into a signature sound that is profoundly Caktuz

Caktuz has worked with such artists as Bilal, dead prez, Boot Camp Clik, SA-RA, The Dey, Brand Nubian, M.O.P., Young Guru, Michael K. Williams aka Omar from HBO’s Emmy Nominated The Wire and many more.  He is a Carolina blues man by blood. His first album, (the critically acclaimed) 2 Hevi 4 Heaven, established Caktuz’s place in the industry as a musical and genre innovator. Creating his own ‘Carolina Bluez’ sound and weaving live performance art into his stage shows, set him apart from the rest.

The introduction of his controversial sophomore album, GOD*Z PORNO, in 2010 got the attention of not only naysayers but DJ's, other notable artists, & industry movers & shakers whom co-sign on Caktuz's potential to be the next highly provacative force to reckon with. In 2011, with a fanbase of over 450,000+ tuned in every week to Cak..?13's Radio One web show ThatsWhatsUp! (www.theurbandaily.com) to see what the multi-talent was going to do next. A bonafide web star, Caktuz's show held the top rated spot at The Urban Daily for 2yrs.

Cak..?13's UK touring has opened the doors to the attentions of foreign icons such as Fusion (Fallacy & Fusion), Akala, Bashy, Noah Francis, and BBC DJ's Charlie Sloth & Target. A witch’s brew of talent, in short, Caktuz is best described as lightning in a bottle, waiting to be let loose on the world.
