REV DA BANDITT
Rivelino “R.D.B.” Sterling was born on March 31, 1981 in Miami, Fl. Born to immigrant parents from the poverty stricken island of Haiti. R.D.B grew up in the immigrant section of Miami, known as Little Haiti. Little Haiti could be classified as one of the toughest ghettos in Miami. It is overridden with crime and poverty. It has its share of gangs and crime-lords. Ate 18 R.D.B. eventually decided to leave his mother’s house and ventured out on his own. “Growing up there was not easy,” R.D.B explained. Because he and his family were estranged, R.D.B turned to the mean streets of Little Haiti to get the acceptance and affection he desired from his mother and father. Not to be too descriptive about his days on the streets, he hustled to get what he wanted and needed for himself.
R.D.B. has been writing music for 15 years. “I started writing rap music in junior high school. I didn’t really get serious about it till I starting being around people who did it professionally.” R.D.B.’s inspiration to embark on a rapping career is the well known rap group of the mid 90’s Bone Thugs & Harmony and the late great Tupac Shakur. He describes himself as being limitless and original. “I talk about real issues that affect me in my life through my music. His contribution to the music industry, he explained, would be versatility. “I don’t limit myself to one genre of music, I write music from my heart, how I feel, and issues that affect me and others,” he claims. R.D.B. is passionate and genuine about the craft of writing.
