Ray Cash
Reppin’ Time

raycash.jpgThe Midwest is full of wide open spaces, but don’t be closed-minded. Much more than just artificial suburban developments and dairy farms, America’s heartland houses 22% of the country’s population, many of them in some of the world’s grittiest cities with a history all their own. Cleveland sits next to Lake Eerie, about halfway between Pittsburgh and Detroit, where the majority of the city’s population is Black. Still, there are few artists out there telling their stories to the rest of the clueless country. Enter 23-year-old Sony Records rapper Ray Cash, who is poised to make Ohio heard.

Signing with influential music executive Kawan “KP” Prather’s Ghet-O-Vision imprint on Sony, Cash first hit the national radar with his single “Sex Appeal.” But it’s his second, single “Bumpin’ My Music” (featuring Scarface) that truly seems to be taking his movement national. Now, with his album, C.O.D. (Cash On Delivery), set for a summer release, Cash is poised to not only cash in, but to make sure Cleveland returns to the prominence it once tasted when Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony broke pop radio in the mid-’90s. And with mixtape DJs like Mick Boogie and Joey Fingaz (who is also Cash’s DJ) gaining national popularity, and upcoming producers like the Kickdrums catching beats on big-selling blockbusters, there is clearly a support system for more Cleveland folks to lean on. C-Town is here and they refuse to sit down.

Listen To:
Ray Cash “Livin’ My Life” (From Cash On Delivery)
Ray Cash feat. Bun B “P.A.N. (Pussy Ass Niggaz)” (From Cash On Delivery)

Ohio is known as being the OT spot to New York folks. What do people at home think when they hear Cam rapping “Dayton, Cleveland, Youngstown, Cincinnati”?
I mean, people know Cam’ron is from somewhere in Ohio. I think he was born here or something like that. As long as a nigga show us some respect, that’s cool. As long as it ain’t no, he was comin’ up here moppin’ niggas, nah. I can’t speak for the other cities, but Cleveland? Nah. We got our own street niggas. We got a big Jamaican influence, so those are the niggas killin’ the streets, bringing that shit. But I heard Cam got his shit poppin’ in Columbus, so it’s cool. If you get money, you get money, nigga. It’s a respect thing and I don’t think he be disrespecting.

So if you have a lot of New York folks coming into the state, there must be a certain amount of influence in the culture.
Just like anywhere else, you got niggas that want to be from there, so they talk the fake “Nahmean?” But them niggas is not real up top niggas. They not really Cleveland niggas. You look at me, my swag, my bop, that’s a Cleveland nigga. White T-shirt, chain. Not too pretty, but always clean. We’ll rob you in a heartbeat [laughs].

At this point, you’re pretty much Cleveland’s most prominent MC. I know I hear a lot of times when one guy is getting a lot of shine there can be a lot of jealousy. Is that something you’re seeing?
Yeah, you get that. I been seeing it. I always got the respect ’cause niggas knew dude was nice. We used to hear about people getting signed, but you never hear nothing else after that. So then I get signed and it’s like, “Oh shit, someone got signed.” Then I come out with a video, but they still see me around the hood and I’m chillin’. They don’t know, but I’m putting together a master plan. Then I come out with another video that’s bigger than the last one and I’m starting to get the hype and all that shit. So my niggas is like, Yo, this nigga really did that shit by himself with no help from nobody in the city. They can’t say they did this for him, he really did this shit on his own. So my respect level is kinda crazy now. Niggas look at me as the nigga that’s showin’ niggas how to do this. If you wanna rap, you gotta take this shit serious. A lot of niggas, they get they deals and are so happy to be so-called “out the hood” that they do anything for it. Niggas see me and I don’t sell myself for nothing. I don’t give a fuck what you sellin’. I’m tryin’ to show them how we keep it gangsta, and represent Cleveland the whole way through.

Your single is a tribute to music you love. These days, it seems like it’s trendy for artists to say “Fuck these other rappers. I only listen to me.”
Somebody had to inspire you. You didn’t just wake up and start rappin’ like, “Fuck these niggas.” Where I come from, they call it “cappin,” which means you lying. You know cats is cappin’ because rappers recycle so many lines. How many times we use Jay lines, Nas lines, Scarface lines? C’mon man, you only take a line if you respect that person. How can I talk about what I talk about and not have respect for the niggas who showed me how to talk about it? C’mon, that don’t make sense. 8ball & MJG, UGK, Hov and B.I.G. are the ones that really taught me how to get in. ’Face taught me you can talk about real shit. He was the first rapper I ever heard speak on God in a way that was humble and really put his heart out there.

Cleveland is known for being a real blue-collar city, so people out there must have that hustle. Why haven’t any Cleveland rappers hit the national scene in a minute?
I think a lot of the problem is that we don’t get outside of the city to understand how to move. I was going out of town before I was doing this shit, so I was seeing other shit. I think a lot of niggas get overwhelmed by this shit, because Cleveland is a laid-back place. We do the same shit, we just do it a little behind ’cause we too laid back. Niggas wasn’t really focused or understanding what it was. We had to have people get a deal and fuck up, to show niggas how to do it. I didn’t want to be the one who they learned the mistake from.

Is it possible for a musician to make a living on a local level out there?
Now it could get to that point, ’cause niggas is starting to be more accepting to local Cleveland artists. Before, they didn’t want to hear nobody; now they want to hear more niggas, so they got somebody to compare me to. Let’s get it moving; let’s see if we can do what Atlanta do and all them other muthafuckas.

I’ve heard people complain about how maybe Bone Thugs didn’t do as much to bring up the city as they could have. Do you think that’s a factor?
No, but people say that. But you don’t know what was going on with they situation. This ain’t a game where you can just put everybody on. It don’t work like that. I understand that, so I don’t feel that way [towards Bone]. They did what they did and they worked with their situation. They showed me that a nigga from Cleveland can win a Grammy too. We can go far on this. I just want to be more in tune with the people of Cleveland. I don’t want to leave no room for anyone to ever be able to say nothing like that [about me]. But don’t think Bone Thugs is gone, ’cause they coming back this year. It’s gonna be a lot of shit happening for us. We got the local kids back home doing they shit, so it’s gonna be a big deal for Cleveland. You got the young kid Fat Al, you got the boy Chip The Ripper, you got the group 216. You got 71 North. There’s a couple people doing they thing, but I feel like I gotta be the one. Ya’ll gonna fuck with us sooner or later. If the city doesn’t pop up behind me doing this, it wasn’t worth it

Do you feel like Cleveland has a unique sound?
Yeah, we do swang music. When I say “open up your doors,” and “door action” and all that, you open up the doors to the car and play the speakers in the door panel. We swang and we stay cappin’. Cappin’ can mean two different things. It can mean you lyin’, or it can be like “frontin’.” With the whole culture and the cars and shit, you open your doors, you got the loud music, it’s looking good. It’s a swagger. Your chains on, your fresh kicks. I’m cappin’, I’m coming through clean. And the sound, you got the young kids they call S.L.A.B. They say it’s slow, loud and bangin’. Shouts to them niggas. That’s probably how you could sum it up.

In an interview, you said you do music because you had love for it, but you may not have that crazy-action movie story that a lot of these rappers pretend to have. Has that been difficult for you?
I mean, I’m a regular nigga. Check my background. I hustled, but I ain’t doin’ it every damn song. When the next album comes, where you gonna go? Everybody know if you lucky enough to have that second album, you got a big budget, so you ain’t selling crack no more. I did all that, but I also know how to fill out a job application. I’m an honest dude. I keeps it 100. If I did it, I’ma tell you where I come from. If you did it, you did it; if not, you shut up. I stay in my lane so you can believe what I’m saying. My word is bond, ain’t no exaggeration going on.

In order to get people’s attention these days, it almost seems like a necessity to join up with a crew that’s already well known. How hard is it to be a dude with no affiliations like that?
I ain’t want nobody’s affiliations. If I had an affiliation, I would want it to be somebody that was just respected in the streets ridiculously, not just somebody that got a crazy label poppin’, ’cause if you don’t do right, you out. They probably don’t respect you that much anyway. I wanted my affiliation to come from niggas just liking what type of nigga I was. I go down to Houston now and Face’s brother hit me up, “We got on the radio.” He come get me that night. Niggas fuck with me ’cause they seen I’m sincere with it. I’m honest with it. I was determined. Cleveland niggas stand alone. Ya’ll thought we was wack? I’ma show you my goddamn self, and then there’s a mob behind me. There’s a whole movement in this city that I got something to do with. I’m the leader. If you want to deal with the city, you gotta deal with me.

    When we landed in America, via the Slaveships, it was never the Europeans plan to make us equals. As time went on, our Fore Fathers fought and died for Civil Rights, and Equality. Now that we have freedom within a “Racist KKK Confederate Nation, the only creative thing were doing in 2006 is Non-Sense Rap Music, calling each other Niggas, and killing ourselves over City property, wow, what a great accomplishment-keeping it gangsta”. We talk about the Rap Game, but who controls the Rap Game? the same people who control the whole Music Game, and these people are not African Americans, but children of “Slave Owners”. The White Man is the one who allows these so called “Black Rap Stars” to win a Grammy, off conditions that the United States Government allowed to happen. The HOOD is the experiment of the Government, who has created classes of people, Rich, Middle Class, and the Poor. The HOOD is controlled by the Government, not some young “Black Dude” who thinks he’s Nino Brown. The HOOD is a made situation, thats why Pac said were not meant to survive its a setup, even though your fed up, gotta keep your head up. The Black Man of America has failed his country Africa, and his Ancesters who died for his future. To all you “Rap Stars, who are Black Slave Traders”, when you sale drugs in the HOOD, your doing the Governments job, the Government gives you the drugs, you sale the drugs like a dummy, then the Government lock you behind bars. Making more money and destorying our population off the face of America. So keep making Music about murder, black on black crime, drugs, and the HOOD, why should you stop? your nothing but “Black Slave Traders”, your the ones who go deep in the jungles of Africa, kidnapping our Brothers, and then selling them to the “White Man”, Rap Music is a “White Man’s Game” and your nothing but a front. Just ask “Ice T” who called Cops “Pigs” and Rapped about being a “Cop Killa”, now He’s playing a Cop on Television. To you “Rap Stars”, wake up, before the Mortician put on your make up. PEACE.AMEN.

I’m talkin’ REAL music man, not that pussy shit….street shit, deep stories, lyrics!!!!! Nelly, Murphy Lee, Chingy, J-Kwon all suck a cock on all of the above…step yo game up homie, bump some REAL music. Me, I’m waitin’ for the Only Built For Cuban Linx 2 shit….Raekwon is still the shit man…he’ll piss on all them lou niggas, all at once. Thats real street brotha.~

  • ReDiCuLouS

    Oh yeah, & I agree with the Bishop up there, but only on a couple topics. One being the drugs…the Government had these drugs, they been around for a while, man. After the Watts riots in the ’60s….thas when they decided to “control” all the brothas. They tried doin that with the Mexicans back in the early 1900′s with pot too…but as you can see, it didn’t work. As for being a “white man’s game”, it is because of the people buyin the shit….teenage white kids. Also, the CEOs & high-ups in the industry also happen to be predominantly white….so inna way, yeah, white people runnin this rap shit. lol

  • Oldman

    It’s funny seeing this bitch ass niggas hatin on this dude Ray Cash. First of all if you listen to his lyrics the nigga is coming 100% real. He’s not trying to act like he is a gangsta. See real niggas from the hood don’t have to act gangsta because most real niggas seen a lot and don’t need to glamourize it. It’s everyday life for them. Real niggas don’t need to front with chains and all that shit because they about their money. It’s good to see a dude like Ray rap about everyday life and not just talking about gun play and fake ass fairy tales. The rap game is about to change back to reality. The fake rappers will no longer exist soon.

As soon as a nigga do his #s he mainstream. Jay mainstream as fuck but does he lose credibility?! Fuck naw! The artist that St. Louis has out now might not be the most lyrical, but that doesn’t mean they don’t put out “good” music, I think that’s what huSTLe was sayin’. I wanna hear that new Rae too, but I’m a realist dawg. That muthafucka ain’t gon’ sell pancakes unless Busta get him on at Aftermath and he get Interscope behind him. Stop hatin’ on the Lou though, them niggas do they thing yo’. Oh yeah huSTLe I heard the boy CHA$E and he hotter than the 4th of July. I think he got production from Basement Beats. Anyway he’s clearly the next 2 blow from the Lou!

    Yo all you fuckin faggot dick sucking midwest pieces of inbred shit. SHUT THE FUCK UP cleveland aint shit. the only real shit in da midwest is East st louis fabo. Yall niggas soft eat dick and die. Come thru wit sumtine hard niggas get blasted yall niggas know who be reppin da north da south and da mid.

  • germ-two

    kanye is the best thing coming out of chicago. him and com. maybe lupe fiasco. but do or die and twista and all that other garbage drags chicago in the mud. and let’s not forgot, yall invented house music, because yall some house negros. i don’t rep, detroit i rep cleveland, sucka. but detroit got it going on. slum village is tighter than most cats in the game. and who is this walking cervix called clova g? st louis? east st louis?? lol. yall got kicked out the midwest, you didn’t know. not even chicago got love for st louis. running around like circus clowns with your nelly and j kwon garbage. the lou got its midwest pass revoked and can’t never get it back. the south can claim you clowns. big up to DNA Level C, Detroit, twin cities, milwaukee, nap-town, the natti , columbus, and if you behave, i will give chicago some love too. to hell with st louis.

    Im a young 20 year old from the D. And it’s nice to hear a talented rapper who doesn’t have this exagerated personality or background. I respect Ray Cash for being true to himself and being on his way to the top because of his skills. Keep bumpin that music!


    The album C.O.D. is well worth the price – one of the best gangster CD’s out right now

    I bought the nigga Ray Cash shit and I was suprised to hear so many people beatin’ that shit in they rides. I only knew they was playin’ Ray once I bought th CD myself but niggas been on dude shit. Whenever I’m playin that shit in my ride niggas be like, “this shit tight, what’s this?” I be like dat boy Cash mane. I knew dude was gone blow up, cause people wanna see a down to earth, real nigga talki about real shit, which he do on his CD Cash On Delivery, I even like the name. All these niggas with videos and bidding wars and shootouts before they album drop, and all the other rap gimmicks aint talkin about shit. They hopin’ to excite muthafuckas into buying their shit using hype. Ray-he just spit. Congradulations nigga, like he said on Gettin’ My Doe off his C.O.D. album, “Quarter mil off Sex Appeal, yeainknow?” Mil-Set, See?
