Optimiztiq, Flashback

Flashback Album Cover

Alex McDonald (born October 24, 1990), better known by his stage name Optimiztiq (pronounced optimistic), is an American rapper, record producer, and song writer from Placerville, CA. He is best known for his fast rap, quirky analogies, and positive approach on music. Writing music became his outlet at the age of 14 after his father died of a heart attack. He released his first record in 2007 and has released one record per year since. Kurupt, former vice president of Death Row Records says, “Optimiztiq is a sleeper.”

He graduated with honors from Pinnacle College for sound engineering and audio mastering in 2010 and founded his independent record label Chakra Sound in 2013. He has shared the stage with many well established headliners such as Tech N9ne, Snoop Dogg, and Too $hort. After opening for Snoop Dogg, Sacramento Press said, “Y’all keep an eye out for this one right here. He’s a white MC from the country kickin’ butt.”

He’s gained a buzz off of his 2013 release “Mouthin’ Off,” an album made with only his mouth. He just released his 6th album “Flashback,” a themed record which uses samples of music from different eras as the foundation of every track and is raising eyebrows in the underground music scene.
