A member of the 80′s and 90′s R&B sensation Tony! Toni! Toné!, and the short-lived Lucy Pearl, Raphael Saadiq has been in the game for awhile. With his unique tone and creative genius, he has been a part of some of the most defining tracks of R&B and neo-soul music.
After nearly 30 years of doing his thing in the industry, Saadiq hasn’t slowed down. He continues to tour and has a spot on a 2013 Toyota Prius SOULED commercial. He also acts as a mentor to fellow Oakland-native, R&B up-and-comer Adrian Marcel. But we don’t think he’ll stop making music of his own any time soon. We only expect him to continue to make classics.
