Biography[edit | edit source]
Rapotwanalantonee, whom everyone called Rappertunie, was a member of the Max Rebo Band, a 12-member band led by Max Rebo. In 4 ABY, crime lord Jabba the Hutt, a fan of Max Rebo, hired the band to perform at his palace on Tatooine. 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.

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