Balti was a multi-talented artist as a rapper, lyricist, and music writer. His first solo effort was an unofficial album in 2003 that introduced him to the hip-hop community in Tunisia.

He also worked on the soundtrack for the film “The Prince” by Mohamed Zran. Balti wrote the melodies and performed three songs in the movie, plus the end soundtrack.

Balti has performed on stage with international artists including Rohff, Tandem, FactorX, Sinik, Diam’s, Amel Bent, Sniper, Nadia, and Willy Denzey, and he opened for Methodman and Redman in concert in Germany.
