10 Insta Reasons Why Rhyheim Shabazz is a Living Endowment for the Arts

If you were to ask any fan what they like about Rhyheim Shabazz they would probably say his passion. It's a great virtue to have, especially in his business as an adult entertainer. It can be hard to balance the fast-paced world of OnlyFans and its shag-and-go content without losing some of the ardor. But Shabazz is just so darn likable that maybe none of it matters.

He is a man with a lot of charisma and confidence on camera even if in real life he suffers from shyness. He has said in an interview that once he starts the first kiss with whoever he is filming with, it just flows. That might be the reason he won Performer of the Year at the 2024 GayVN Awards.

From Bridgeton, New Jersey, the 42-year-old didn't start doing adult films until 2019. Before then he was an escort (warning: NSFW link) from the ages of 21 to 30. There was a seven-year period where he discovered who he was and eventually became comfortable with that.

Only two months after he arrived on the adult movie scene he signed an exclusive deal with TimTales (warning: NSFW link), an adult movie studio specializing in well-endowed performers. If you want to explore that area more check out his other social media pages and his OnlyFans account. For now, we are going to concentrate on his Instagram page where everything is strictly PG-13.

With a body that was seemingly forged in the gyms of Mount Olympus, Shabazz looks like a god in this relaxed pose. He admittedly says he is a homebody who likes to read and write. But there must be time in his schedule for working out too.

In this picture, Shabazz looks like he is contemplating his next move. In an interview from a year ago (warning: NSFW link), he says taking photos isn't his favorite thing to do. "I think for me the important thing to remember is not to 'perform.' I hate taking photos mainly because I'm so aware of the camera," he said. "Posing has always seemed so fake to me. As fake as Photoshop."

Red is such a passionate color. It can evoke feelings of love, lust, or even sex. Shabazz seems to be expressing all of those in this photo taken when he was in Rio de Janeiro back in March. That city might be the best place for Shabazz to showcase his physique, especially during Carnival, an event that takes place five days before Ash Wednesday. It's a celebration with roots in Catholicism but has since turned into a city-wide party filled with music and unbridled sexuality. According to the timestamp on this photo, Shabazz just missed it this year but we would guess he still had a great time as suggested by those briefs.
