Raz B Talks will.i.am Convo, Unprotected Sex With Marques Houston, Suicide & Why He Won’t See A Shrink
Raz B is mighty talkative. Especially when upset. Bring up Chris Stokes, Marques Houston, Omarion or anyone who fits in-between and it’s as if the 25-year-old’s swallowed a green light. But the topic is one that Raz adamantly feels he has to come forth (again) about. Lies. Molestation. Homosexuality. Even two years following VIBE’s investigative feature on B2K centered on allegations that Stokes molested members of the group and IMX, Raz believes not much has changed. Feeling compelled to revisit his past after resonating with the Bishop Eddie Long scandal, the frank ex-poptart got on the jack with VIBE to discuss his fears, truths, and sexuality.—Tracy Garraud
VIBE: Vibe’s far from the first interview you’ve done this month. Do you feel like your life is being threatened?
Raz B: There’s pressure coming, but I have a lot of protection and when you work for God you have nothing to worry about. People ask why are you coming out now but this has been going on for a very long, Chris has been molesting boys for a while.
How many boys total do you think it’s been?
A lot of people share their stories with me. And it’s all crazy. Chris used to have me have sex with him and he used to suck my penis. This stuff is satanic, but I thank God for my testimony so I can help someone else.
How long was this going on for?
Between the ages of 13 and 17.
Were you threatened with anything if you refused to have sex with him?
He would text me and say well you know what I did. The confusion is Chris did molest me but they thought he was putting his penis in my bootyhole. But that was Marques Houston. I’m very vocal [now]. I’m not afraid of anything.
Were there any condoms involved?
Um, maybe once it was unprotected. I believe so.
But did you ever adamantly say ‘No’?
Finally when I was able to realize these niggas were really gay I was able to leave.
You didn’t realize you were taking part in homosexual acts before 17?
