At just 20 years old, Charlotte singer and rapper Raheeme will be rocking the Spectrum Center Friday night along with rapper Genuwine, hip-hop R&B band Guy and other '90s music luminaries during Power 98's 90's Block Party.
In early March Raheeme performed outside the Spectrum during CIAA 2018. During his impromptu showcase atop a mobile billboard truck, he caught the eye of R&B singer Tank, who taped the performance and broadcast it on his Instagram live feed. Tank, who also will be on Friday Block Party bill, wound up inviting Raheeme to open the show — inside the arena.
"Even though I've performed on the same stage as Rick Ross, YFN Lucci, Boosie and Wale, I've never performed at a venue and stage as massive as Spectrum Center," Raheeme says. "I'm ready and excited to have a good time and give the audience a great show."
Raheeme's latest release is B!tch I'm Ra!, a 5-song mixtape of freestyling over Drake, Jaden Smith, Migos and more. Earlier this year, Raheeme released the 15-song mixtape Made It, and prior to that, the collection You Were Rite. Now, Raheeme is prepping for his first official album for Charlotte's BNR Records. "By the looks of it, it might get pushed back from the projected late July release," he says. "I need this album to touch as many hearts as possible."
You may know Raheeme best from his breezy single "Where You Been," which has gotten good play on Power 98. Watch the video here...
