Born in Kroměříž of Romani descent, Rytmus co-founded the rap group Kontrafakt. His first solo album, Bengoro, was released in 2006, followed by Král in 2009 and Fenomén in 2011. The single "Technotronic Flow", produced by DJ Mad Skill featuring Rytmus, reached #1 in the Slovak music charts,[2] as did the single Daj mi ešte jednu šancu from the album Král, and Príbeh, a feature track from Tina's 2009 album Veci sa Menia, which also reached #1 in the Czech charts.

His mass popularity largely results from his appearances as a judge on the talent shows Česko Slovenská Superstar[3] and Hlas Česko Slovenska.[4]
