Raheem DeVaughn is indeed a true worker at his craft, indeed it’s the hard work that has got the man this far proving it’s not just talent that is needed in today s music world, yet he has this in spades. Arriving on the musical scene 2005 it was easy to think the man had won a competition and got a record deal, which seems to be the case these days. No he was hustling and working hard entering completion and all the time putting the word out there creating a brand from the street upwards so that when the day came, and it did people would already know him a talented artists from this show or a mix tape (“It’s just another way for me to put out music while I’m waiting for my album to come out.”) of which he had created and songs he had written and not written for him or told what to sing. My guess is Raheem DeVaughn new this from the start. Born into a family of music his father was a jazz cellist, his cousin is the beautiful and talented CHRISETTE MICHELE (“I can remember at a very young age, standing in my mother’s living room, listening to music and saying to myself, ‘I’m going to be an entertainer.’). The first time I heard a Raheem DeVaughn`s was the song YOU form the album THE LOVE EXPERIENCE in demonstrated that he is a true talent a talent I doubt if JIVE RECORDS know what they have on their hands, as I guess eventually most large record companies seem to have this problem. The album was an instant hit Raheem DeVaughn had arrived other hits form it included GUESS WHO LOVES YOU MORE and BELIEVE it was wh
at I thought then one of the best soul music albums of that year and he deserved it. Could he follow this up? In 2007 he came storming back with what was to prove to be two of my memorable songs of that year WOMAN and MY SOUL`S 4 SALE of which he featured on DJ JAZZY JEFFS album THE RETURN OF THE MAGNIFICENT both proved to be great songs and hits for the man, yet in this side of the world they barely made a dent, I was confused as to why this was the case whilst your D`Angelo`s or R Kelly`s seem to be picked up a played his music wasn’t or at least it appeared to be that way .In 2009 he was back with THE LOVE &WAR MASTER PEACE and the song BULLETPROOF agin showing he could lyrically challenge the best of them and on the subject matter it need not always revolve around the bedroom antics,also he was feature on the highly rated tribute to maze album released this year and what a treat that was . Raheem DeVaughn is a quality act that is still to be fully realised.
