Raz B is to continue his career in the music industry. Part of his agenda is the release of a compilation record project that will convey positive messages and in his words, "bring families together." Distributed through his newly created production company, RazBeatz Entertainment: Heal the World will feature collaborations with a host of emerging artists.
Along with the release of the "Heal the World" project, Raz has a solo venture in the making. Anticipating the release of his solo album, titled "Raz B: Boy 2 King", Raz hopes to bridge cultures through entertainment and create music that speaks from the soul with his first solo debut. Leading up to his official unveiling as a soloist, Raz released his first debut single, "Fire" in May of 2007. "Fire" officially debuted on the Billboard charts (the week of 5/12/07) on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales charts debuting at #2 and also hitting the Billboard Hot Singles Sales charts at #11. At the time there was literally no promotion behind the single as it debuted.
An avid reader, Raz has future plans to release his autobiography, which will be both reflective and revealing to many of his fans. Additionally, projects on the immediate horizon include television, film properties, charity ventures and several international ventures.

On December 26, 2007, a third part of the allegations was released. Thorton made a public apology stating that the allegations were not true about Chris Stokes and Marques Houston.
Some have alleged that this apology was forced or coached. 17 seconds into the video a voice, off camera, can be heard coaching Raz-B to mention Chris Stokes by name. When Raz-B apologizes "for any hurt this may have caused publicly, financially..." A male voice can be heard off camera saying "No-no not financially." The video ends abruptly at that point.
Adding to the rumors that Raz-B was forced against his will to make the video apology are his brother, Ricardo Thornton's, claimed that his brother had not been in contact with him for over 24 hours, which was unlike his brother. This comes on top of allegations that came when a photo of IMx surfaced on the internet of the three group members in their underwear lying next to each other on a bed.
On January 3, 2008, a video surfaced on TMZ.com where Raz-B, his brother Ricky Thornton, and Chris Stokes were leaving a restaurant together with Raz-B proclaiming,"The whole world want to see this, come on Chris Stokes" and "We love each other, man!"
