2009 marks the year Denver native Ray Reed took Rapping serious, practicing among friends to eventually rapping on instrumentals. Once he found his sound, in a relatively short period of time has rose
from the hustles of the street life to gaining notable buzz as a rapper. What stands out about this artist is
how he has been hardened by life, "It is what it is but, I'ma get mine at the end" is what you get when
talking to Ray. Never using it personally, Mary Jane was his hustle in high school. It was just his way of
getting money in his pockets and that's all it ever was. Eventually, he had his run in with the laws which,
landed him in jail. He promised himself when he got out, the game time was over and he was destined to
become a rapper. So, there's no show here, this is all him as you see it. Growing up he idolized Lil'
Wayne, from the Hot Boyz days, since he talked about the life Ray lived. Now, his favorite artist is K.Dot
aka Kendrick Lamar because he talks about the hard streets he lived through and came out on top. From
childhood, he has been a risk taker and showing off to entertain his peers brings that Center of Attention, that Ray is no stranger to.
