Ocean Ave Records Presents Sharkula "Salads Are Tasty" E.P featuring Kooll Keith. The windy city hip hop veteran gets up close and personal about life in the sea. Kool Keith and his #1 Producer moniker step to bring Sharkula to outer space. Sharkula travels time and space in stereo to bring you his abstract rhyme scheme on a array on musical instrumentals that are bangers.

Sharkula (other alter egos include Thig, Brian Wharton, Thigamahjigee, Sherlock Homeboy, Dirty Gilligan) is a Chicago-area rapper. His lyrics are known for being scatterbrained, discontinuous, free-associative, non-violent, apolitical and random. He is also known as a flâneur for promoting his music and shows via use of hand-made flyers and stickers scattered around vending boxes in Chicago, and street marketing often with phrases such as "Hey, you like Hip-Hop?". He has appeared on Chic-a-Go-Go and his album Martin Luther King Jr. Whopper With Cheese was voted by readers of The Chicago Reader as one of the 20 best albums of 2004.

Subject of a documentary film, titled Sharkula: Diarrhea of a Madman, produced by long-time friend Joshua Conro, chronicling his life, art, music and struggles along with the many producers and rappers that he has collaborated with over the years. He has collaborated with Willis Earl Beal, who looks up to Sharkula for inspiration.

in 2016, Sharkula was named runner-up best street character of the year by the Chicago Reader.
