Biography

Rufus Arthur Johnson (born July 5, 1976) better known by his stage name Bizarre, is rapper, best known for his work with Detroit, Michigan-based hip hop group D12. His songs frequently contain subject matter that often creates shock value, such as rape and drugs.

Bizarre released his first EP titled as "Attack of the Weirdos" in 1997. The album features Eminem, Kon Artis, and more. For a while, he did not practice his solo career, rather performing more often with his rap group, D12. Bizarre was present for D12's first EP in 1996 titled "The Underground EP".

Bizarre was featured on D12's first studio album in 2001 titled "Devil's Night". Bizarre continued to perform alongside D12 without practicing his solo career, not until after the release of D12's second album "D12 World" in 2004. Bizarre then released his first official studio album in 2005 titled as "Hannicap Circus". He had also worked with rappers Kuniva, Swift, Proof, Kon Artis, and Eminem in D12. He was also featured in Eminem's compilation album "Eminem Presents: The Re-Up", on a track called "Murder" that features Kuniva, released in December 5, 2006. But following the death of rapper Proof, D12 and especially Eminem was affected greatly, and D12 became inactive for a simple reason. The album "Eminem Presents: The Re-Up" brought together all of Eminem's fellow rappers including all of D12 except for Proof. In 2007, Bizarre released his second studio album called "Blue Cheese & Coney Island".

In 2010, Bizarre released his third studio album titled "Friday Night at St. Andrews". The album is more reality-based on actual situations throughout Bizarre's early life and career, thus the album is more conscious than his previous releases. The album features guest appearances from Tech N9ne, Yelawolf, Kuniva, and more. Bizarre along with King Gordy have formed a hip hop duo called The Davidians.

In February 2012, Bizarre officially announced that he had split from D12 and started his own group, The Weirdo Movement.
