RBX (Reality Born Unknown), born Eric Collins in 1967, is the son of Bootsy Collins, a cousin of Snoop Dogg, Daz Dillinger and Nate Dogg, and is a rapper from Long Beach, California.

Early years

RBX's hip-hop career began in 1992, when Snoop introduced him to Dr. Dre, who would make his own groundbreaking debut with The Chronic. RBX was added to the roster of artists collarborating on the album. His rough voice and bizarre flow, which earned him the nickname of 'tha Narrator', made him one of the most promising and recognizable MCs of the time. His best commercial musical achievement was co-writing Dr. Dre's Let Me Ride with Snoop Dogg, which won a Grammy award for Dre in 1993.

A year later, RBX appeared on Snoop's debut Doggystyle on the track "Serial Killa", sounding even more non-canon as an MC, and appeared ready to be the next rising artist on the Death Row label.

Unfortunately, Dr. Dre and Death Row CEO Suge Knight had a different view of the matter, and kept delaying RBX's debut, which finally led to RBX's departure from Death Row in 1995. That same year he released the dark and eerie The RBX-Files on Premeditated/Warner Bros. Records. It included the track "AWOL", in which he described his feelings about Death Row and its politics.

In 1996, Dr. Dre left Death Row as well and redeemed himself with RBX by adding him to his new Aftermath label. RBX's tenure with Aftermath was limited as Dre, facing difficulties, parted ways with all his artists in order to reinvent the label.
