RajiTheOne’s been on the scene, behind-the-scenes, but his newest venture shows him in a new light: More forward and 100 percent necessary.

The Midwest native started dabbling in the performing arts as an adolescent and his passion for it carried him through adulthood, landing him a spot on Trey Songz’s camp, where he began producing and learning how to develop artists. Fast forward to now, Raji has a new track out called “Everything” and he’s gearing up to release a treat for the fans that helped him make his “#WhiteGirlVoice” single go viral (peep the music video below).
