Music Seen: Raphael Saadiq Takes On His Album Release Date In Style (PHOTOS)

by

Raphael Saadiq is one well-dressed gentleman?and a crucial part of the effortless cool he radiated when he appeared on Big Morning Buzz Live last month to promote his new album Stone Rollin’. VH1 Photographer Zev Schmitz followed Saadiq all day, and got some great pictures of the Bay Area multi-instrumentalist on BMBL, recording an VH1 Top 20 Live set, sound-checking (and later performing) at Webster Hall, showing off his look (and tattoos) a bit, and generally staring down release-date jitters. He needn’t have worried?the album would go on to chart better than any of his previous solo records.
