Biography

There are at least two artists/groups called Bizarre.

1. Rufus Arthur Johnson, better known as Bizarre (born in Detroit, Michigan on July 5, 1976, is an American recording artist, best known for his work with Detroit hip-hop group, D12. More recently Rufus Johnson was featured on season 3 of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club.
He has appeared in many magazines including Rolling Stone and The Source. His story-telling rap style consists mostly of exaggerated instances of sex, child abuse, and rape (freely mentioning domestic violence, incest, and bestiality). It is mostly an attempt to be comedic, but also to vent the frustrations from his life and childhood.
An interview stating that Bizarre was interested in helping up and coming artists was played on the Tim Westwood show on BBC Radio 1 in January 2008. Subsequently Bizarre featured heavily on the single “Who the Fuck are You” with UK rapper SamuelVictor. When the track was premiered on BBC Radio 1 on September 11, 2008 the DJ and Producer recounted the story and said that it was the first time that a UK rapper had worked with Bizarre or D12, discounting their work with Gorillaz, as only D12 rapped on the track.

2. Estonian shoegaze group Bizarre came together in 1992. In the early stage they were largely influenced by the post - MBV dreampop scene.
