Sadistik is not just another rapper, he's an artist in the deepest sense of the word. Hailing all the way from the scenic gloom of Seattle, Washington, Sadistik has quickly gained the hearts and ears of listeners by opting for a more personal and heartfelt brand of music. By combining caustic honesty, lyrical wit and technical innovation, Sadistik has crafted a sound that he can truly call his own while circumventing the limiting cliches of rap music.
Sadistik has been described as "showing his scars with each song he writes," as well as, "the cigarette burn rap king." He's developed a cult following since the release of his 2008 debut The Balancing Act. His unique style of hip hop, which draws upon "dark imagery, dense wordplay and nontraditional production styles" has gotten more innovative with each release.
In working with Equal Vision, a label known for encouraging their artists to explore uncharted territory and doing whatever it takes to help facilitate the artist's vision, Sadistik covers expansive new ground with his newest release and finest to date, Altars. Artwork by Michael Hussar.
