Biography

Unikkatil (birth name Viktor Palokaj, also known as Rebel a.k.a. Unikkatil; born 18th March 1981 in Pristina – Kosovo) is a successful rapper and producer from Kosovo , who is generally viewed and as the ‘King’ (also self proclaimed) of the Albanian hip-hop scene.

He has been one of the prolific pioneers of Shqip Rap (Albanian Rap) since 1994. Unikkatil has continued producing successful tunes while living in the Bronx, New York and in Kosovo.

Unikkatil raps in Albanian and English though his main focus is in the Albanian language.

In the late 90s/early 21st century Shqip Rap was mostly commercial based until Unikkatil brought something fresh to the game, gangster rap. Gangster rap did exist in one form or another in Albanian rap however it was never popularized and never really grabbed the attention of a greater audience.
The skillful delivery, witty metaphorical rhymes of Unikkatil changed the game and many rap artists have taken his direction, leaving the commercial party scene with soft, simple rhythmitic and to the point hip-hop behind. Although Viktor has gained fame recently he has been around for quite a long time. He actually started recording songs such as “Demokraci” (Democracy) and “Ta Zhdukim Policinë” (Let’s Vanish The Police) way back in 1992. At the age of only 12 he recorded his first professional song entitled “Zinxhirët Qe S’kputen” (Chains That Don’t Break) .
