Ralph Raymond has prepped for months since the release of his last track, but now he plans to “One Up” the competition with his first track of the year.
Not only does Ralph jump over the beat for three verses, a rarity in the rap game in 2017, he does so over his own self produced beat. Harnessing the Chicago soul that Kanye embodied in his early days, Raymond jumps from devouring “MC’s who claim they only spitting venom”, to admitting his own faults with the fact he’s “never patient” and “I fuck shit up with lack of trust and overthinking”. Raymond gives life to the sound while giving the audience his duality as an artist.
Peep “One Up” below and be on the look out for the next move from the young Chicago product.
