Currently best known for his role as Andre Coleman on the Starz Network show, Power.  His career both musically and acting wise are skyrocketing. Not only did he just release a new body of work, entitled, Jeep Music Volume 1, but he was also just in a movie co-starring, Larenz Tate, titled, Deuces.  He started acting career in 2011 on a TV Show called Boss on Starz. It was his first job and his first audition. In 2013,  he got a role in Black Nativity, starring Angela Bassett and Jennifer Hudson, and also a role in Divergent. But he continued to record his music. During that time, he also shot a video for a song called “Only Human” that social media really took a liking to,  but Rotimi remained focused on acting until he scored his role on Power. 

I have personally listened to his music and I can honestly say that he has a nice voice and Jeep gives me some really good R&B vibes, that we can all use right about now. Check out his album cover and track list shown below and definitely give it a listen. It's pretty dope.
