Babyface Ray is easily one of the most talented artists out of Detroit, and that’s really saying something, considering just how much talent has been emerging from the motor city. Babyface Ray has had an incredibly graceful come-up, and for good reason. After winning the favor of both the older and younger Hip-Hop audience in his city, the same phenomenon began occurring with Hip-Hop fans around the world. Ray has been instrumental in forming what people know today as a ‘Detroit sound’, working with local producers and rappers to form a polarizing movement that’s taken over the music scene.

As influential as he’s been in the rise of Detroit’s sound, he credits Tee Grizzley with setting the stage for Detroit’s modern musical renaissance. Similar to how Atlanta has different-sounding artists that all share a common ‘thread’ within their music, Detroit has been doing the same, and producing a plethora of stars: Babyface Ray, GT, Icewear Vezzo, Veeze, and even more.

Babyface Ray’s latest drop is a project called ‘FACE’, and it’s ridiculously good. The curation of features alone might be the best of the year so far: Icewear Vezzo, Yung Lean, G Herbo, 42 Dugg, Pusha T, Landstrip Chip, and Wiz Khalifa. As if that’s not enough reason to listen, Babyface Ray’s solo records are some of the biggest highlights of the project. “Tunnel Vision” and “Motown Music” are great examples of that, and can be found on our Monday to Monday playlist. 

Babyface Ray blessed fans with 3 videos since unveiling his project: “Dancing With The Devil (feat. Pusha T and Landstrip Chip)”, “Sincerely Face”, and “My Thoughts 3 / Pop’s Prayer”. All of the visuals match the quality of the music seamlessly. Detroit rap is experiencing a rebirth, and Babyface Ray is leading the charge. He makes superior quality seem effortless, and surely all 7 of the seasoned artists featured on his ‘FACE’ project agree.
