Chicago’s Ralph Raymond is a positive soul. He reminds me of early Outkast, with his love for funky grooves and his distinct voice. His latest drop, One Up, is 4 and a half minutes of his lethargic flow coupled with funky self production. Although the length of the track may sound intimidating, it’s easy to stay attentive all the way through. He is observant of others around him, with witty bars and strong opinions.
Press play on the groovy song, and keep watch for his prosperous 2017.
