Rapotwanalantonee, better known by his stage name of Rappertunie, was a male Shawda Ubb and a member of the Max Rebo Band.


Rapotwanalantonee, whom everyone called Rappertunie,[3] was a member of the Max Rebo Band, a 12-member band led by Max Rebo.[4] In 4 ABY,[5] crime lord Jabba the Hutt, a fan of Max Rebo, hired the band to perform at his palace on Tatooine.[6] While performing an encore of "Jedi Rocks," the band was interrupted by Jabba when he dropped his slave dancer, Oola, into the rancor pit beneath his throne.[7]

Personality and traits[]

Rappertunie was a male, green-skinned Shawda Ubb who stood at three-tenths of a meter in height.[2] Like other Shawda Ubb, Rappertunie could spit a paralyzing poison, and he would do so at anyone who threatened him.[8]

Skills and abilities[]

Within the Max Rebo Band, Rappertunie played a peculiar instrument known as a Growdi Harmonique, which required the use of his fingers, toes, and mouth.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

During the production of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, Rappertunie was nicknamed "Jedi Rapper" by the filmmakers. He was realized as a puppet which was then digitally composited into new and existing footage for the Special Edition release of the film.[9]
