His lyrics display strong elements of storytelling along with an utter lack of concern for oversharing. Ray found his early inspiration from the works of Drake, but as an artist who was born in New Jersey, raised in Atlanta, attended college in Nova Scotia, and currently resides in Toronto, he tends to draw from a number of influences that fluidly shape his sound. Ray Reaves likes to describe his music as “sad boy rap you can dance to.” Whether you’re partying with your homies or crying about your girl, Ray Reaves music is guaranteed to deliver all the feels and all the vibes.
