As an integral member of Urban Pop quartet B2K, Raz B stood tall as one his genre’s strongest contributors.
Upon the group’s demise, the years that followed saw his brand scarred by a number of horrific revelations to unearth from his childhood and those closest to him. Now, after relocating to China, the ‘Bump Bump Bump’ vocalist is plotting a return to the music industry….and has called on his remaining fans to help him do just that.
In a message posted on the star’s official Facebook page, the following explained:
As you know, Raz B was invloved in a near death experience when he fell through a glass window and injuried his hand it has been almost 2 years now of him being on tour in China.
And now he is back ready to make more music, and share all of it with his fans who’s been holding him down since day one Before returning to America, Raz B wants to thank all of his fans all over the world, that’s why we are launching this new project Raz B’s debut album in France.
Every since he was in B2k Raz has always wanted to go to France, Now it is finally about to happen. With this project it is to fund and launch the album in France, with the hope and the will to release it all over the world.
Just because the project is happeing in France does not mean we don’t need you!
In fact, we’d like to include all the fans possible: Europeans, Americans, Asians etc we are all part of Raz Million!, Succeeding in France will lead to Europe and hopefully, all over the world again, to meet with all of you!

With Omarion being the only member of B2K to succeed in launching a semi-successful solo run, it’ll be interesting to see how Raz’ sound has developed since the plug was pulled on the group.
Of course, while the bulk of the criticism aimed at him lay in his seemingly ‘nutty’ nature, it’ll also be interesting to see how a relaxed and far more ‘together’ Raz handles the inevitable mess his comeback will be sure to reignite.
For, while it was all too easy for some to laugh at ramblings of an alleged mad man when the performer first came forward with abuse he allegedly faced as a child, he really is one ‘Fix My Life’ episode away from changing the world’s perception of him…and wreaking havoc for those he- and a number of others believe- got away with murder.
