Biography

When it comes to 23 year old Seraiah Rajkumar, music has always been the answer to any and everything in this rollercoaster life. Falling in love with the drums at the age of 2, his passion for music grew immensely over the years by way of his parents’ love for singing Reggae and Gospel music. With roots derived from Trinidad and Jamaica. Seraiah was born in Brooklyn, NY, and raised in a variety of places such as Cleveland, Georgia, and Florida, as well as the islands. In large part, this has given him an intuitive sense of different cultures by learning their rightious ways of life, and infusing his soul with the uplifting music that was being played everyday. Throughout his elementary years, Seraiah spent the summers going on tour in Europe with his family which is widely known as a reggae group called Morgan Heritage. standing behind and watching his Uncle Steve play the drums during every show is what sparked his love for playing music. Fast forward to 2016, sophomore year at Savannah State University. Seraiah began making making beats on his iPhone, which then grew into his own production company called “BrooklynMadeBeatz”. After 3 years of crafting a signature sound, He then started writing songs at a time where he had no access to his laptop and couldn’t make any beats. Scrolling through the Beaststars platform, he found the beats for singles: “Pick It Up” & “Good Girl”, which were both recorded on apple headphones in his Mother’s car. Thus, the artist “Raiah” was born. That story alone inspired his song “Perfect Timing” that will premiere on his debut album “M.O.G”, which stands for “Mentality of God”. This will be a 2 sided album with songs of the World genre, as well as a series of Hip-Hop tracks. This notion represents Raiah’s background and who he is as a person. From growing up with his mother who played a lot of Hip-Hop/R&B, and Soca music, to living with his father who played strictly Reggae music. While both environments were totally different in their own ways, the one common factor was that Rajah was instilled with great moral teachings. With livity (Rastafarian Term) and faithfulness at the top of the list, these are just 2 things that inspire Raiah’s lyrics when writing his music. Feeling that too many people in the world, especially his generation, are lacking these things that will help them operate at their full potential an realize their purpose in life. Positivity, Love, and Motivation are all things that are hope be spread globally as Raiah takes flight on this journey to fulfillment.
