On the heels of his fifth EP as Rexx Life Raj, Faraji Wright was ready to lighten things up a bit. He’d cultivated a fanbase by fusing introspective personal and political commentary with sunbaked Bay Area grooves.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7TH
@ Cafe Erzulie | GET TICKETS
Bino Rideaux sounds like Southern California after dark.
Through thick smoke from every angle, his melodies glow as iridescently as streetlights do, while wavy flows sway similar to palm trees. The Los Angeles singer, rapper, and producer cruises out of South Central with a nocturnal fusion of hip-hop and R&B, putting up numbers with over a quarter-of-a-billion streams and just shy of half-a-million followers.
