On this week's episode of The R&B Money Podcast, Tank and J Valentine welcome the multi-faceted singer and actor, Rotimi. As a young teenager, Rotimi earned his reputation by conquering the Apollo stage. It wasn't long before he joined the group NBH, receiving mentorship from none other than Jay-Z. However, Rotimi faced a tough choice: pursue an Ivy League education at Northwestern University or continue with the group.
Ultimately, he opted for Northwestern, from which he graduated and soon landed acting roles alongside Kelsey Grammer, as well as his unforgettable portrayal of Dre on 50 Cent's hit show, Power. In fact, his performance as the villain was so convincing that even his friends on this podcast struggled to separate Rotimi from the nefarious Dre, a character entirely opposite to his true nature.
From recording in Northwestern's studio, peddling mixtapes on set, and coining the phrase "it's the man, not the motel", Listen and enjoy this story of resilience, faith, and determination— Rotimi on The R&B Money Podcast
