To set the stage, Arik is one of three children and full of soul. He is a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo and became famous on TikTok late in 2019 after he shared a video clip “leveling up” and stunting his Rolex. From there he’s shared hundreds of videos full of dance, motivational clips, and his music which have earned him a remarkable 1.5 million TikTok followers.  Erik attended LaVilla School of the Arts and has made music and dance his life.

Arik has shared over and over that his goal is to be a famous disability rapper and finds inspiration to motivate all types of people to be happy in life and feel good about themselves.  His debut song “When I Turn 18” dropped in July 2020 and since then he has produced a handful of singles and EPs, some collaborating with rappers such as DJ Nitti, TEO G, and Greco Tax. On top of these singles and features, Arik has poured his time and talent into producing two albums a year since 2020.
