BIO? from Washington, DC but I’m based in Northern VA. I’m 25 years old. And my musical genre is hip hop/r&b/soul/. I’ve been writing music for 15 years and I decided to take my music serious as of last year.
Top five influences: Tupac Shakur, Mos Def, Jimi Hendrix, Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar New EP (Untitled) dropping the fall of 2018. Voodoo Doll music video out now.
What helped me get into music?: My mom was a singer but it wasn’t until I met my grade school friend Sam (R.I.P) that made me want to rap when I challenged him to a rap battle. Hearing rhyme schemes, punchlines, the reactions from your peers, it was enticing. From then on I knew this was what I was made for.
Anything to tell your fans? The one thing I would tell my fans: I love you guys, wherever you are. I’m just starting to get serious but I want you to take this journey with me. New fans, old fans, you guys are still my fans. And if you want updates on new music, music videos etc. follow me on ig @_raymondbarnett and on twitter
@ray_barnz Love you guys!
Biggest goals for 2017? To have a bigger fan base full of die hards and day ones. To open up for mainstream artists and have my own shows. And lastly to have more visuals; I want to get people familiar with my voice and to put a face to that voice.
