MC Ray Reed has been shaped by the streets of Denver but has not let them define him. Reed started taking his MC-ing seriously in 2009, when he would practice with friends, rapping over instrumentals. While in high school, he didn’t use marijuana, but he sold it to make money. He had a run-in with the law that resulted in jail time, but was determined to tap into his full potential as a rapper upon his release. This June, he dropped a fourteen-track mixtape, a project hosted by DJ Bandz titled Pac-Man. On it, Reed draws on similarities between the popular video game and the music industry. His major influences include Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar, the latter because Lamar speaks about coming from the streets and still finding success.
