A young veteran of the Birmingham music scene, RTkal has been honing his craft as one of the cities most talented wordsmiths since the early 2000’s.
Inspired by his youth, his generation and his heritage, RTkal has used music to spread positive vibes, unite and entertain audiences across the world.
As an independent artist RT has had charted success in various countries with tracks such as “Puttin’ In The Work” by Ghost Writers and “Run Your Mouth” by Noisses ft Lady Leshurr and Foreign beggars which also won UK Music Video Awards best urban music video of 2012.
Recognised and endorsed by the likes of Snoop Dogg, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra RTkal has performed alongside some of the most iconic musicians worldwide including Wu-Tang Clan, Dead Prez, Curtis Blow Tyga and as a Mud Family member, the UKs very own godfather of rap Skinny Man. Not to mention hyping up some of the biggest audiences in the world including performances at Glastonbury, Isle of White Festival, Lovebox, Outlook Festival and numerous tours with legendary sound systems Valve and Channel One.
After much success with collaboration projects RTkal is back with his first solo EP in 4 years.
