Cleveland has always provided original music that incorporated the harsh realities of growing up in the midwest. As we enter into a new era of Ohio music, Cleveland has embraced Ray Jr. as the mayor of their city — specifically East Cleveland, which has a reputation for being the roughest part of the area.
Just over two weeks ago, Ray Jr. lit up the internet with a monster remix of "Same Crew" featuring Dej Loaf, Young Dolph, Troy Ave, and Machine Gun Kelly. Switching gears today, Ray unloads his new Clockwork-produced single "Don't Give Up." The new music, as most of Ray's music tends to do, touches on very real situations happening in his city including everything from running the streets for money just to get by, to disloyalty, to police brutality, and much more.
