The skilled MC comes from a place known for producing rap heroes, and he is eager to take on the challenge of running with the Top Dawgs. With his new three-track EP ‘Peer Pressure’, he makes that obvious.

From the beginning of ‘Not Allowed’ to the end of ‘Tap’, his charisma, versatility, and wordplay are on full display. The project is meant to be an appetizer for the main course, introducing the latest Top Dawg Entertainment artist to the masses through his penmanship and flavor. He fit right in when he was signed in 2020, patiently committing himself to mastering his craft. Ray is excited to let the music speak for itself now that his Top Dawg Entertainment status has been announced. He says:

I’d love to tell you how I created the project, but to tell you the truth, to revisit the place of brutal honesty these songs came from is a chaotic process. Don’t take me too seriously, honestly, just learn to have fun.
