We were fortunate to talk ish with Chicago’s very own…Lil Kaotik!!! Lil Kaotik has been performing for several events throughout varies cities along with artists such as Jacob Latimore, Issa and that’s just to name a few. Lil Kaotik may be a young rap artist but he definitely doesn’t show any signs of slowing down any time soon. Lets get to know Lil Kaotik…
3 Voices: Let the world know exactly who Lil Kaotik is and what he does.
Lil Kaotik: Well basically, I’m a 15yr old rapper/hip hop artist. I love performing city to city and state to state. And no doubt I love to meet me fans when I’m out there.
3 Voices: When did you actually become a rapper and what inspired you do so?
Lil Kaotik: Wow, well in my heart and in my mind, I became a rapper at age 5. I started writing and rapping around the house. A few months before my 13th birthday, I got a chance to record a song and performed at 3 events. So, when I turned 13, I really started to sink my teeth in it. S/O to Demi Lobo and #MTU12! I got a great start thanks to Most Talented Under 12.
Well, when I was growing up, “LIL” Bow Wow was out then. His music was really the only rap that I was allowed to listen to because it was clean. But you know, he was a kid, I was kid. I could relate. So, yea, Lil Bow Weezie inspired me.
3 Voices: Shouts out to Demi Lobo and Ms. KC with the whole Most Talented Competition that they do! Oh yeah and Bow Wow, in case he sees this lol. Who are some of your musical influences that are in the music industry?
Lil Kaotik: I have a lot. But mainly Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Tupac, Biggie, Common, Mos Def. Hold up, this dude Gemstones….maaaaan!!!! His flow is RIDICULOUS!!!! s/o to Gemstones. I appreciate your talent homie.
3 Voices: Okay, we see you really do know hip hop. Those some heavy hitters. Your most recent video is Strackback Boy featuring Issa. How did the song come about and how did Issa become a part of it? By the way shouts out to our actor feature, Gio Johnson who’s also in the video.
Lil Kaotik: haha, yea definitely shout out to my big bro Gio. Well, I love Strapbacks. They fit better than snapbacks and fitted hats. People always talk about snapbacks so, I have to show some love to the Strapback hat. “Imma Strapback Boy talkin bout snapback scratch that noise”….. The big bro Issa. He cool people. By the time I got ready to do the song, I had done a few shows with him here in Chicago and in ATL. After seeing him perform and listening to his music, I thought he was dope. So, I wanted to work with him. I asked my mom if I could do a collab with him. So, she reached out to Issa’s mom.
3 Voices: Moms are great, they make things happen lol! Who else would you like to work with on any upcoming singles or even feature on a remix to any of your songs?
Lil Kaotik: A few people. Gemstones, Mindless Behavior, Jacob Latimore, Ace Primo, Torion, Jacquees Then when I am grown, I’m probably gonna have to pull Jay-Z and Usher out of retirement. lol
3 Voices: We can see that happening. What’s next for Lil Kaotik? Are there any exclusives that you can let us in on at the moment?
Lil Kaotik: We got so much about to happen. I don’t know where to begin. But it’s gone be crazy! I’m on tour with Issa, Jacquees, Ace Primo and a few other people. We in NY this month and then we wrap up in Detroit at the end of December. Yall can look for more music from me, a promotional tour next year and some other things that I can’t speak on right now. But yea its about to be crazy! It’s all a blessing.
