North Carolina rapper Caktuz is set to headline the Sound City Rock Festival’s hip hop stage, Strictly Hip Hop, this May 20th beside 2006 MOBO Award Winner Akala (Best Hip-Hop Artist).
Sound City is one of the UK’s coolest boutique urban festivals. Already established as an epoch-breaking music, arts, cultural and multi-media extravaganza, from home-grown local bands through to the most dynamic and fresh talent sourced from around the world.
Caktuz will also be advocating on behalf of I Am Now Inc. Homeless Triad-Teens Initiative while in the UK, for an exchange program with the creative arts foundation WOW.
A long time community activist in his hometown High Point, North Carolina, Caktuz wrote and illustrated a comic book for teens on AIDS awareness with the Red Cross at 17.
From graphic art, design, and behind the scenes to center stage, Cak..?13 has used his many talents to not only inspire but help to create more options for at-risk-youth.
