Last of a Dying Breed

Ali Chaotik’s EP “The Last of a Dying Breed” Celebrates His Life After Death

On January 12th 2014, Montreal mourned the loss of Ali Chaotik. The tragic shooting was the first murder of the year, and it has left a scar on the city’s Hip Hop community. He was one of the most positive voices in the local music scene, but he also had a violent past.

The shooting ended the life of an inspiring young man who had gone through trials and tribulations, and who took that energy to take himself on spiritual journey through music. Being caught up in the street lifestyle, he had spent some time in the Bordeau prison. Later, he decided to take on a new direction in his musical career, focusing on a more positive message while celebrating his Haitian and Muslim roots.

His family, who remains shocked by the tragedy, ran the Montréal Marathon in memory of Ali Husain Jean.

He became a frequent performer at underground rap event The Hiram Key Project, and was collaborating with Urbn’Logix, one of the city’s most underrated rappers. In the later months of 2013, he hooked up with producer Beatahoe and they recorded a six-track EP called Last of a Dying Breed. The EP was short and was recorded with the intention of creating buzz for the up-and-coming artist and releasing more music in the future.

On this project, he adopted a more aggressive lyrical approach, showing he is a beast on the mic. He had mentioned that this was going to be his last hard record, before moving onto more introspective directions. Our sympathies go to his friends and family and to everyone who enjoyed his music. Last of a Dying Breed is part of his legacy, and we are proud to share it with our readers.
