Here's an interview from Rolling Out Magazine.
RAHBI - Raw Talent
If Prince and Grace Jones had a love child together, singer, RAHBI would probably be their eccentric off-spring.
"RAHBI is a lot," the Atlanta-based singer says. "It's like whenever a great thing is presented, or something new and unique, they don't get it at first because it's so different and their ears aren't used to hearing it."
Although it sometimes takes a while for listeners or attendees at his live shows to digest his raw brand of musicality, the end result is usually the same: respect. Formerly a member of L.A. Reid's short-lived boy band, 4th Avenue, RAHBI says when the group disbanded, he finally found his identity.
"If I had stayed in 4th Avenue, I would have been successful, but I would have been doing what everyone else is doing now," he says, adding that his time with the Freddie Hendricks Youth Ensemble really added to his development as an artist. "Right when I got in the group, L.A. Reid gave us roles to play. He was like you're the sexy one. But see, I was gonna try to be sexy based off of what I thought the sexy male image is."
Now, RAHBI's soulful blend of funk and raw sexuality has garnered him attention from around the country and overseas. His series of live shows, Strange Fruit, have even further solidified him as one of the biggest emerging stars in soul music.
"People know that when you book RAHBI, you're booking glitter and gold, a full production," he says.
Recently, he also launched RAHBI TV on his myspace page (myspace.com/rahbi), which will provide his supporters with an intimate glimpse into the energetic singer's day-to-day.
"I wanted to develop a real relationship with my fans, we could be friends instead of them just buying my music, we could get a little closer," he says.
When all is said in done, RAHBI is confident that his uniqueness is what will ultimately make him a household name.
"That's the only way to really be unique- is to do you," he says. "I know that sounds cliche, but that's the truth." - jacinta howard
