Italian rapper who debuted in 1997 at the Sanremo Festival under the name MikiMix, as a b boy pop singer. His pseudonym Caparezza means "Curly Head" in Molfetta's dialect.

Caparezza's music is predominately described as hip hop, but is diverse in sound. He is highly influenced by Frank Zappa, whom he considers his "teacher". Caparezza criticizes society and politics with sharp irony in contexts which are often fantastic and unreal. Caparezza's lyrics include unusual metaphors, and references to movies, comics, commercials, TV broadcasting, classic writers, other musicians and many more, many of which are very difficult to spot, or to link to the fact they refer to.
