Description:

Eric Dwayne Collins (born June 20, 1968) better known by his stage name RBX (standing for "Reality Born Unknown"), is a former rapper and R&B singer from Long Beach, California. Contrary to popular belief, Collins is not related to funk legend Bootsy Collins, although the two are close friends.

RBX joined Death Row Records in 1992 with his cousins Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger of The Dogg Pound. A former college student and retail manager, Collins wisely declined to sign blank contracts like his Death Row brethren and his tenure on the label would be brief but memorable. Having made commanding cameos on The Chronic in 1992 and Doggystyle in 1993, RBX left the label in 1994 and signed with the lesser known Premeditated Records.

He released The RBX Files in 1995, his debut solo album that was produced by former Chronic production team member Greg "Gregski" Royal. The album abandoned the popular West coast G-Funk style in favor of a gritty, dungeon-like sound more associated with New York. The single "A.W.O.L." was an attack on Death Row, Suge Knight, Dre and others, with X comparing the dubious business practices there to the days of Ruthless Records, Jerry Heller, and Eazy-E.
