Ray Cash - making me proud.


As mentioned before Im a big fan of the "Big Things" show with DJ Ripsta (every Thursday from 6:30 to 9:30 on 88.7 WJCU or hit the website if youre not from Cleveland) and theyre always playing this song by this dude whose name I always forget. Well today I remembered his name and since his video's on BET and getting some more airplay on tv and radio I figured we'd better give him a little shine. The dude is Ray Cash and he's pretty tight. He's got a voice and style a lot like Southern rappers what with the drawl but this guy's Cleveland to the fullest. Good delivery, good bounce, good hook, good video, what more can you ask for? Peep the video to his single "Sex Appeal" and you'll see Cleveland in all its #1 in poverty glory, from the ball park to the justice center (shit Bone never even showed this much Cleveland in their videos), and Cleveland's actually lookin good for once ("Double Dragon: The Movie" this is not). They even joke/comment on how Bone was the last thing that Cleveland had going for it (Avant? where are you?) Keep your eyes on this dude because he might be creeping up on you in a major way. Asides from appearing on local mix tapes and the what not, his album, "COD: Cash On Delivery" is due to drop sometime this summer, which is good because this single is quite the summer jam. Much respect to a Cleveland boy representing for his city.

holy shit. that video is amazing. I was wondering what happened to stephan urkell(y).

well the intro is amazing anyway. the random clips of the stadiums cut with the street signs is pretty bad. and ok, the hook gets really annoying by the end of the song.

I've never heard a clevelander with an accent like that ... donno bout that.

"that was back in '92! look at the old school book! you a'int the o-jays!"
