Rodney J. Brown, Jr. is a rapper whose South Central Los Angeles perspective has been relayed through the aliases RJ and the more unique RJmrLA.
The mixtape O.M.M.I.O. ("On My Mama I'm On") marked Brown's proper debut in 2013, a year in which he also appeared on tracks headlined by YG and DJ Mustard, two of his closest associates. An assortment of tapes was issued over the next few years, including additional O.M.M.I.O. volumes through Mustard's 10 Summers label. Tracks such as "Ride wit Me" and "Get Rich" made an impact beyond his region; a major label offered a lucrative deal that Brown declined. In May 2017, through a Mustard and YG label partnership dubbed 400 Summers, Brown released his first studio album, MrLA. Ty Dolla $ign, ScHoolboy Q, Quavo, and YG himself were among those who made guest appearances on the set, Brown's highest-profile release to that point. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
