Bilgin Özçalkan (born 31 December 1976), also known by his stage name Ceza (pronounced je-ZAH, Turkish for 'punishment'), is a Turkish rapper and songwriter. His 2015 song "Suspus" has been compared to Eminem's anti-Trump freestyle rap "Storm".
In 1995, Özçalkan started a group called U.C.S, and performed with this group until about 1998. His group Nefret got signed under Hammer Music in 2000, and the album Meclis Ala - Istanbul was released. In 2001, Özçalkan proceeded to release the album Anahtar. The title track on this album that holds the same name as the album itself was the first one that came with a music video. The album was a great success, and Özçalkan got to give many concerts with it.
Özçalkan's big breakthrough came in 2004, however. He was invited to one of the biggest rock festivals in Turkey, namely RockIstanbul, and was asked to perform on stage here. He was able to showcase his rap music in an environment that held the largest Turkish popular music acts.
After these two projects, Özçalkan had a featuring with artist Mercan Dede, in his album Su (water).
