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

Timothy Rawles READ TIME: 4 MIN.

There are several photos on Shabazz's social media pages that celebrate his canine companions. He loves dogs. Two years ago, he lost his beloved first dog Violet, a retriever. In this picture, we see his Husky, Shiva, in the back, and an unnamed fur baby of the same breed resting under his head in the front.

In a relaxed moment, Shabazz takes a brief period to soak up the Rio sunshine. Filming can be an intense and time-consuming physical exercise. He learned that on his first film shoot for TimTales which he thought would only take an hour. "That one hour ended up being four, and by the end of it my body felt like it had stepped into the gym and worked out with a trainer for the first time," he said in an interview (warning: NSFW link) in 2019.

Shabazz says in this photo, "Don't mind me." But it's hard not to take notice of his naked stature and dominant stare. His partner Elijah Zayne must be used to this seductive glance. They have been together since the end of the pandemic. Elijah says that he sometimes gets jealous when Rhyheim makes movies, "but it's never a time where I feel insecure about it, I just get – I'm like, oh I just wish you would f**k me like that now."

Back in Los Angeles, Shabazz gives fans another strategically artful pose in the nude. He has said that his favorite body part to workout are his shoulders (warning: NSFW link). Partialism is a term used for a body part fetish that doesn't involve the reproductive organ. With this particular photo, one has a variety of places to focus on and obsess over.

Clad in white Intimissimi briefs, Shabazz takes a selfie in what looks like a shower. The adult star has said that he prefers briefs over boxers. He also says he loves wearing sweatpants. We can't decide which we like better; each has its benefits.

This flex comes from a photo shoot in Rio. Dressed in a black bodysuit, Shabazz looks like a superhero ready to use his powers to save the city of Gotham. This shoot was for Alternativa, a company that says it's a "Photographer and videomaker specialized in capturing masculine essence and sensuality. Alternative, where your wish is not a sin" on its Instagram page. Mission accomplished.

Smiling once again in his birthday suit laying on a fur blanket, Shabazz seems happy. But he dropped a bombshell about the future of his career during a red-carpet interview with his partner Elijah Zayne at the GayVN awards in February. When asked how much longer he would be in the industry, Shabazz said, "I'm giving it three to four months." He then added, "I'll keep working –- just not in front of the camera."
