RAQ THA MASTERMIND AKA RAQ FLAIR AKA RAQULA AKA CYCLOPS is a Rapper/Producer from Cartersville GA. He is 1/2 of rap duo THOUGHT CRIMINALZ, and owner of Soundbomb Entertainment.
He started writing songs in 98. In 2002 he formed a group called Urban Legendz with his best friend Tzar. Around this time he begin battle rapping as well as handing demos out at school. Urban Legendz recorded several songs but never released a project. By 2004 the group was disbanded when Tzar decided he didn't want to rap anymore. RAQ kept recording but it was just a hobby. In 2008 he started to take music more seriously. He formed a group called "THOUGHT CRIMINALZ" with his friend LORD ZERO who he met online back in 2005. In 2009 THOUGHT CRIMINALZ signed with Suicide Lab Productions and dropped their debut album "CONSPIRACY REALITY". Later that year RAQ released his first solo project, a mixtape called "LET IT RAIN". In 2011 THOUGHT CRIMINALZ released their 2nd album "PARTNERZ IN CRIME". In 2012 RAQ released his 2nd solo project, a mixtape called "THE iRAQ MIXTAPE". Later that year RAQ and ZERO would leave Suicide Lab Productions. There was no beef but with most of their friends now gone from the label, it just didn't feel like home anymore. In 2013 RAQ helped mix and featured on the THIRD IMPACT(LORD ZERO X KING CAO) album called "THE CONTACT EXPERIMENT". The next few years he would release a few singles and collabs, but this period is marked mostly by him being inactive. His inactivity was mostly due to battling depression brought on by health issues and deaths in the family. His mother, both grandmothers ,father and grandfather passed away one after another. In 2019 RAQ and ZERO formed a record label called "Soundbomb Entertainment", and dropped a THOUGHT CRIMINALZ compilation album comprised of some of their most popular tracks as well as unreleased songs.
