A true torchbearer of Boom Bap Hip Hop, Attikus rhymes with the soul of the blue collar working man. A master of observation, Attikus raps about the little things that creep into our minds and circle our thoughts. With a wordly mind, Attikus hails from Vancouver,BC on the West Coast of Canada. Delving deep into the conscious stream, Attikus politics with the audience, almost having a conversation with his listeners. Original member of Vancouver boom bap band GroundBreakers, Attikus has played hundreds of shows, having toured Western Canada and BC heavily as opening act and tour manager for Emotionz and Stylust and most recently having toured Coat to Coast across Canada with Toronto’s Timbuktu and Halifax’s Ghettosocks culminating in a performance at the 2012 East Coast Music Awards. These endless miles and epic drives through extreme weather conditions made an indelible impression on him, as he earned his chops, living the nomadic existence of a touring musician. Along the way he has performed in a supporting role for shows that included Zion I, J-Live, Lifesavas, RA the Rugged Man, Living Legends, Masta Ace, Chin Injeti, Moka Only and many more. In August 2011, Attikus traveled to Cuba with Killawat recording artist Joose Justis to play the HIP HOP POR LA PAZ (Hip Hop For Peace) Festival in Havana with artists from all over the world. Attikus and Joose played two sold out shows at the legendary Riviera Theatre and taught and attended multiple workshops on hip hop culture over the 5 day symposium. Having recently signed with hip hop label and film company Wandering Worx, Attikus just released his debut solo album named Boo Radley April 2012. This 13 track album has been met with rave reviews with HipHopCanada saying; “There’s a definite precision executed by Attikus on his latest, Boo Radley. A sly yet incisive rhyming style along with epic tone-setting beats and a solid crew of features makes this gratifying listen from front to back”. Meanwhile, while working on a follow up EP and songs for his project POTC (Pulse Of The City) with fellow Vancourverite Junk, Attikus is writing and recording at a feverish pace, burning the candle at both ends as he continues his search through the mind of the everyman. With his right arm and partner in crime at his side, Vancouver beat boxer GBoXX, Attikus has just begun to make his presence felt in the world of music, a presence that will undoubtedly intensify.
