New York-born Poetik grew up in Long Island. Hip hop has been in his blood from the earliest days spent listening to artists like Naughty By Nature, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., and others. Music has always helped him get through the hard times and struggles, and now he’s giving back with an album of his own.

“The Road Less Traveled” is an emotional journey. Deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, Poetik invites listeners into a world that most of us only hear about on the news.

“’The Road less Traveled’ is about my life from the time I was a young teen to now, at 20 years old. It is a project I have been working on since I was about 16 or 17. This is a story, and each song is a chapter showing every page is different than the next. If you listen to it you will hear about the extreme drug abuse I have overcome, as well as the deaths of close friends, being institutionalized, politics, heartbreak, falling in love and in general several more chapters explaining just why I am who I am today.”

The beats are minimalist, providing just enough of a backdrop for the lyricism and stories that Poetik deftly weaves with verbal dexterity.

The lead track, “Moving Mountains” has an old school, funk-infused beat that gives the song a dreamlike quality. Ethereal and deeply moving.

The album’s title track features a guest appearance by producer Taino Rosa providing backing vocals. It’s a lonely song, a prayer in the dark. Melancholy laces every line in this story of lost love and heartache.

“The Realist,” featuring NY emcees N.khilla and Enjetic, is another standout track. With a 70s soul beat, the trio bring a high-energy performance as they take turns dropping lyrical bombs.

“The Road Less Traveled” is a journey through hardship, a chronicle of overcoming obstacles that’s sure to leave an impression.
