Hailing from the east side’s 6 Mile section, the 29-year-old born Marcellus Register is a staple of both Detroit and couture street rap at large. With his trademark conversational delivery and thoughtful wordplay, Ray has accumulated over 400 million streams in a little over 2 years . In 2021 Ray went on a run that started with the release of Unf*ckwitable and culminated with Ray being booked for festivals such as Rolling Loud Miami, NY, and LA, Day in Vegas, Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash, and more as well as opening for Jack Harlow as direct support on the Creme de la Creme tour. Unf*ckwitable saw Ray chart #1 on Billboard heatseekers and in the Rolling Stone Trending at #25.
In the wake of Unf*ckwitable’s success, Ray garnered co-signs from Tyler The Creator, Lil Baby, Future, and LaMello Ball , and accumulated a host of collaborations with modern rap megastars such as Jack Harlow, Trippie Redd, Big Sean, Moneybagg Yo, and EST Gee, which set the stage for 2022 and his official debut album “FACE”.
Upon its release, “FACE” ascended to the #3 spot on Apple Music all genres chart and #2 on the hip hop chart, drumming up widespread acclaim and high praise from Billboard, Pitchfork, Complex and more.
With the press, the numbers, hip hop biggest names, and the city of Detroit behind him, it’s no question Ray is the “FACE” of modern street rap.
