All Music Guide:
A cousin of Snoop Doggy Dogg, RBX ("Reality Born Unknown") got his start as a member of Dr. Dre's Death Row Records stable, contributing to both Dre's The Chronic and Snoop Doggy Dogg's Doggy Style. An in-house controversy ensued when the release of RBX's solo project, RBX Files, was delayed indefinitely by Dre. RBX claimed that it was simple unfairness on Dre's part, also charging that he had not been paid for his work on the aforementioned albums, and appealed to Death Row CEO Suge Knight to intervene. His album was eventually released in 1995, and the first single, "A.W.O.L.," ripped both Dre and Snoop for RBX's troubles. However, most of his subject matter concentrates on positive messages reflecting his Islamic faith. By 1996, RBX had reconciled with Dre and appeared on his The Aftermath album; still, nothing much was heard from RBX for a time, save for his contribution to the Fakin' the Funk soundtrack. Finally, in 1999, RBX resurfaced with a new album titled No Mercy No Remorse.
