HandleBar Raw aka RA Dub was born January 23 1983 in Tacoma, Washington. He began rapping at the young age of twelve with his four brothers. Along with the help of three of his four brothers Priest, RUG and Young Shad they formed the rap group BlockRepp. Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the streets BlockRepp is now a dysfunctional rap group waiting to reunite. In the meantime HandleBar Raw is on his own and out to prove he’s more than just a member of BlockRepp.
HandleBar Raw is not new to the rap game, as a member of BlockRepp he put out numerous mixtapes including BlockRepp Volume 1, BlockRepp Volume 2, BlockRepp Exclusives, BlockRepp The Movement, BlockRepp All-Stars, BlockRepp The Movement 2, Big Boy Business Meets Trip Down Bottom and two unofficial unreleased albums Rent Money (2007) and Hustlers Buffet (2009). His most recent work is a project he teamed up with Seattle area producer Boombox Massacre to release Boombox Massacre The Mixtape Ft Handlebar Raw. HandleBar has also held his own on tracks with such artist as San Quinn (Im Da Man), Thizz Entertainment CEO J-Diggs (Yokin N My Chevy) and west coast Legend Kokane (Gangster Wayz).

He has shared the stage with such artist as E-40, J-Diggs and Duna from Thizz Entertainment and several other notable artist as well as many notable local (Seattle/Tacoma) artist. HandleBars’ style resembles that of a surfer on Waikiki Beach the way he conducts himself on each beat. His voice and lyrics make it clear to listeners to understand what he is trying to get across as his message in each song. HandleBar has the ability in his own words “to hold his own against any rapper in the game” and he is ready to prove himself as a solo artist and not just a member of BlockRepp.
