RAYED R (formerly known as Ray Rizzle) is celebrating the 1 year anniversary of his debut EP In Due Time by dropping the video to his new single, Competition, shot by Organized Visuals. The Alabama emcee is preparing both a mixtape and an album for 2016 as well as hitting the stage at SXSW this month.
The chances are you may not heard of BLACK THE ILLA – well let me tell you, he doesn’t hold back especially in his latest track, Colored Shadez.
With clever samples of Betty White’s 80s single Keep Love New, the Alabama-based emcee addresses the systematic racism that plagues the US today. As a voice in the South, ILLA collects his thoughts giving a thoughtful analysis on the issue of race.
Colored Shadez is available as a free download via SoundCloud.
