About Me
A diamond in the rough, Caktuz..?13 is a witch’s brew of talent. A child prodigy in visual art by 7 & an accomplished author by the age of 18, he wrote and illustrated his 1st graphic novel noir ‘Futprintz’ for The American Red Cross. Since then Cak..?13'z writing has advanced into screenplays, novels, animation, and storyboard production for commercial and theatrical scripts. Cak..?13 was commissioned by the legendary Melvin Van Peebles to illustrate the feature film adaption of his most recent movie Confessions OfA Ex Dufus Itchy-Footed Mutha. Peebles & Cak..?13 worked closely on this project, amassing over 60 pages, for 6 months.

A political prisoner for a crime he did not commit, Caktuz..?13 gave 8 yrs. of his youth to an unforgiving prison system. Never defeated, only inspired, he went on to become a rising indie recording artist on his own AMAS Multi-Media label, having worked with such artists as Bilal, dead prez, Boot Camp Clik, SA-RA, The Dey, Brand Nubian, M.O.P., Michael K Williams aka Omar from HBO's Emmy Nominated The Wire, & many more.


The grandson of James Brown protege', early soul music legend Johnnie Scotton, Cak..?!3 is a Carolina blues man by blood. His 1st album, the critically acclaimed 2 Hevi 4 Heaven, set Caktuz..?13’z place in the industry as a musical and genre innovator. Creating his own ‘Carolina Bluez’ sound & weaving live performance art into his shows. From music to gracing the Broadway stage with the legendary Melvin Van Peebles, his DRX performance art group raised the energy of every show. Now donning the the Musical Director seat, Cak..?13 created Wheat Bread’s (a lifestyle brand) media division with Wheat Bread Radio, & the release of it's 1st album, Bread Breaks Vol.1 & 2. An album executive produced and mixed by Cak..?13.
