One of my favorite artist from Detroit, that you probably never heard of is Fat Ray. Fat Ray holds an important place in Detroit music history, working with artists such as Black Milk, Phat Kat, BR Gunna, Elzhi, Danny Brown and a handful of other Detroit heavyweights.
Over the last few years Fat Ray dropped a solo album Perseus, dropped gems on Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade album and quietly dropped a track titled Joan Rivers which has an insulting 2,345 views as of press time. Honestly, a track of this stature should have at least 50K views in the YouTube era. With top-notch video production by AUX Cinema and a mesmerizing beat coming from BleuRilla, Fat Ray doesn’t disappoint. His wordplay is swift and precise, and his ability to add authority to his verses sets him apart from most MC’s. I think he’s found a home with BlueRilla, and hopefully, we can get a full-length album from the duo. You can follow Fat Ray on Instagram here.
