CTRAFFIK was born and raised in Miami, FL living on welfare cheese and Colombian home-cooking. He learned to rap at age 2 and by age 5 was touring Europe with Run-DMC and Disco Rick. He took a break from music to pursue a high school diploma in the world-renown inner city schools of Miami-Dade county including Miami Central High – an “A” school that is a breeding ground for Ivy League graduates, world leaders and Nobel Prize winners. By Age 16 CTRAFFIK discovered a miracle mushroom supplement that revolutionized the cattle breeding industry and used the millions of dollars in patent royalties to jump start his revolutionary rap career.
Before he was even 21 he self-financed, produced, mixed, plagiarized and recorded the record breaking album “The BumRush“. 2Pac was once quoted as saying that “The BumRush changed my whole view on Landlord-Tenant negotiations, that traffik guy is really deep!” In 2003 CTRAFFIK was freeloading in a bunch of South Dade studios where he met Caliba in the process. They founded Tha Union Entertainment and promised to drop more mixtapes than 50 cent. Around the same time CTRAFFIK lost a bet and was forced to DJ reggaeton music on WRGP 88.1 FM. To avoid the shame of being labeled as a reggaeton DJ he changed his name to DJ Traffikante and quickly began adopting a Puerto Rican accent to disguise his voice. By 2004, his radio show was so popular that he was asked to DJ on cable TV’s Mun2 network for their hit show “The Roof” where CTRAFFIK, in a pig pen act, would skip the makeup before going on-air only to find out afterward that he’s got a greasy forehead on TV.
CTRAFFIK would go on to tour his music, compete and win in various emcee battles, visit jailed buddies, feed the children and establish a school for illiterate Korean War veteran widows where they learned how to day-trade on the stock market with penny stocks. By 2009, CTRAFFIK scrapped together a bunch of songs from the 82 mixtapes he released with Tha Union and called it “Rushed Again” and pawned it off as some sort of an album/mixtape. It proved to be widely popular with the Nigerian internet scammers who offered CTRAFFIK a million dollars if he provided his bank routing number via email.
Today, CTRAFFIK continues to record on a mic he bought on eBay with a Mega Man bobble head sitting on his studio monitors while releasing earth-shattering records and politically driven protest songs. His goal is to drop more albums than Too Short without ever having to open any concert for an artist that uses Auto-Tune on their voice.
