RBX, a cousin of Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dat Nigga Daz, got a start to his rapping career in 1992 when Snoop introduced him to Dr. Dre, who was to make his groundbreaking debut "The Chronic". RBX was added to the personnel making this album. His rough voice and bizarre flow which got him the nickname of "The Narrator" made him with Snoop one of the most promising and recognisable rappers at the time.

A year later, RBX appeared on Snoop's debut "Doggystyle" on the track "Serial Killa" and seemed to sound even more non-canon as a rapper. It was likely that he was the next to blow up as an artist of the Death Row label.

Unfortunately, Dr. Dre and Death Row CEO Suge Knight didn't agree with that as they kept on delaying his debut; finally in 1995, RBX left Death Row. This is likely to have been his worst decision ever as it practically blew his chances for commercial success away. That year he released the dark and eerie "The RBX-Files" on a more or less underground label, Pre-meditated Records. It was the home of the track "AWOL" on which he addressed his feelings about Death Row and its politics.

In 1996, Dr. Dre left Death Row as well and redeemed himself with RBX, adding him to his new Aftermath label. He only stayed for some time however as Dre, facing difficulties, split ways with all his artists to reinvent the label.

From then to 2001 RBX had a sabbatical period of the odd guest feature, though releasing his second album with an equally dark-hitting vibe, "No mercy, no remorse/ The X-Factor" in 1999 on Street Solid Records. It was in 2001 that he joined Snoop's camp at Doggystyle Records and became one of the staple guests on its releases and Snoop's various projects.

RBX released another album, "Ripp the game bloody (Street Muzik)," in early 2004. In late 2004 it was followed by 'The Shining', where he seems to have reworked his flow somewhat to refresh himself musically. All tracklists can be found below.
