Born in Los Angeles, but with deep sources in Atlanta, RJ is comfortable with many modes of street rap. A multiple-sport star in high school, RJ moved to Atlanta after graduating and became deeply embedded in trap culture. Upon his return in 2013, RJ linked up with DJ Mustard, who liked his style and recruited him to join the producer’s 10 Summers crew. A favorite of L.A.’s Power 106 hip-hop stations, RJ heated up the airwaves with hits like “Get Rich,” his collaboration with fellow 10 Summers rapper Choice and HBK’s Iamsu!, last year’s “Flex,” which garnered over 4 million views on YouTube, and “Ride Wit Me,” featuring YG, which possesses over 4 million streams on Spotify. Most recently prior to MrLA, RJ appeared on “Get Out Yo Feelins,” a highlight from YG’s Red Friday mixtape. Marley is available to purchase and stream right now at your favorite online music shop.
Thanks to his unparalleled energy and infectious sing-song flow, RJ is one of the most popular rappers in the City of Angels. Rising out of bed to make mischief on the Lord’s Day, RJ transforms the church into the club in “Thank God.” Teaming up with the Memphis wild card, Blac Youngsta, who makes for an unhinged and manic energy to the proceedings, RJ leads his block like a congregation as they move to DJ Mustard’s beat. “Thank God” is the latest single from RJ’s recent MrLA album, following “Brackin,” which Pitchfork praised as “L.A. Rap at its finest” and Spotify placed on its Most Necessary playlist. Marley is the first exit from 400 Summers, a joint venture between DJ Mustard’s 10 Summers and YG’s 4 Hunnid Records. Featuring appearances from YG, Quavo, Schoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign, Blac Youngsta, and Earl Swavey, morale is a trunk-rattling, club-busting collection of trails, packed front-to-back with brilliant, singsong bars.
