Ray Cash

2006/01-02/snp.ray_cash/main.jpgRay Cash ain’t your average rapper. The 26-year-old Cleveland native looks more like a tech-support guy than a game-spittin’ pimp. However, Cash’s Steve Urkel–like first impression immediately disappears the second he begins flowing. With a voice resembling one of Fred Sanford’s old-ass friends, Cash’s deep baritone and slick wordplay are as commanding as they are infectious. But it was Cash’s mirage of an appearance that caught the attention of Sony Urban’s executive VP/head of A&R Kawan “KP” Prather, who signed Cash to his very own Ghet-O-Vision imprint. “The first thing I noticed was [that Ray] didn’t look like nobody else in the game,” confirms Prather. “He looks so different. He actually stands out more. But he can also rhyme. He got for-real skills.”

Born Wardell Raymond Cheeks, Ray Cash grew up in Cleveland with a bird’s-eye view of the typical antics in Ghetto U.S.A. He was first introduced to hip-hop by his older sister, but rappin’ wasn’t an early focus for him. “I didn’t grow up wanting to be a rapper,” says Cash. “People always told me I had skills, but I never took them seriously.” Now Cash, who got serious about rap in 2001, finds himself in a position to reignite the spark once started by hometown heroes Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. “Everywhere I go people always asking me, ‘What’s up with Bone?’” he begins. “That just goes to show you how much of an impact they’ve had on Cleveland. You expect that when niggas is hot, but goddamn after awhile.”

Cash is actually the polar opposite of the quick-rapping quartet. His delivery, though lyrical, is slow and deliberate, allowing his Ohio drawl to breathe. After orienting himself with last year’s pimp-tight single “Sex Appeal,” Ray is now ready to reintroduce hip-hop to Cleveland with his debut, C.O.D.: Cash on Delivery, a swagger, skill-filled opus reminiscent of hip-hop’s golden era. “I look at myself as a throwback rapper,” says Cash. “Rappers ain’t telling stories no more. They just rappin’ you to death. My main goal is to captivate you from start to finish.”

    When I first heard Ray Cash when I went to Cleveland two years ago, and even on the Sex Appeal record, I didn’t think he was a real lyrical talent. But when I heard Bumpin my Music, he really stepped his game up! Glad to see a new artist, that isn’t always talking about shooting or robbing some one. Keep doing ya thing pimpin!!!

  • JB

Listen..what you give out you’ll receive back. Remember that when you finally get your chance. No need to respond gentlemen. I’ll see how ya’ll treat me later.

  • Sonn-Whis

    I’m so tired of people saying Cleveland, Ohio is the Midwest……. For the geographic record people need to closely examine a map…… Black people stay saying ignorant things constantly………. that’s why were so lost In corporate America now…… cause we don’t utilize the information available to us…… Most of us have no knowledge of self history or politics…….. besides the memorization non sense they teach in schools…….. It’s very unfortunate but truth Is there are alot more followers than there are leaders in the world today! Cleveland, Ohio Is geographically closer to PA not Chicago or detroit…. So to the person that said it is the Midwest you are unfortunately mistaken………!

    Peace!

    P.S. Everybody In Cleveland needs to stop bitin and jockin the Southern rappers and create there own style…… “BE ORIGINAL”!

    Nigga Fuck A Legend!!! How da Fuck You gon’ come out wantin’ some props and respect fo’ yo’ album that aint even out yet and the first thing you say out your mouth is a hatin’ ass remark about somebody else.
    Nigga step ya game up. Not pimpin muthafucka!!! Who the fuck, WHAT the fuck is a light skinned legend? High Yellow Ass….. Nigga you aint even worth the breath.
    All yall niggas on here hatin’ cause you aint got shit and like dude said you probably from Cleveland hatin to see the next man come up. Niggas in Cleveland ain’t never got each other backs. Yeah it’s niggas wit’ mad skills in the South, but most of them don’t be rappin’ about shit worth while. You could be from the south and your album could make no fuckin sense at all but yo hood gon’ represent you to the fullest. All you got to have is a tight beat and it’s all good in the South. But up North and in Cleveland it’s just full of fuckin haters.
    Ray, My Nigga keep doin what you do best, That’s doin you! Fuck these haters in da ass wit’
    no vaseline, and don’t look back. Yeah I’m from DirtLand too,East
    DirtLand to be exact, but I’m repin’ tha ATL!!! Where it ain’t nothin’ but niggas doing it soooo big they ain’t got time to hate!!! They got jobs, good stable jobs and nice cars and houses to match. The ones that don’t have it goin’ on,don’t go around hatin’ and worryin’ about what the next nigga doin’and why he doin’ it.
    Ray, you know you got what it takes. You got mad rap skills. It’s gone always be haters, if they got time to write a comment and hate on you, they must be thinkin’ bout you, and if people thinkin’ bout you it’s a good thing!
    Holla Back Bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://N/A Fresh- A&R for Saki Ent./ Fontana/ Universal

    First off,

    I’m from Cleveland(The C-town) and I’d like to just say that we do support Ray 150% but In terms of talking what you live I have heard many things to dispute his story I mean for one they say he moved off Euclid & Cliffview during his high school years and stayed In the burbs, don’t get It twisted tho….. there’s nothing wrong with a parent wanting to move your child out of a some what negative enviroment but then again Cliffview aint really that bad In terms of the living conditions…….. It’s just some of the people that stay over there that makes It appear some what thugged out…….. Real talk….. It’s like 5 to 10 minutes away from the burbs If even that…….. then there’s the issue with the private school and we all know aint no real hard gangstas going to Villa Angela Saint Joes(Keep It nasty!). We really have been looking for somebody real and authentic to come up outta Cleveland for the longest time and our team got em…….. his name Is Sonn-Whis and I’m telling you watch and see In the next couple of month’s what he do to this game…….. not to discredit nobody else In Cleveland doin the damn thang but he got the crown hands down…….. He got songs with big name cats and he backed by Fontana/ Universal Records, just mark my words watch out for his mixtape dropping january ’07 hosted by Shadyville (Whoo Kidd) this mixtape Is gon set the crown right ontop of his head were It rightfully belongs and he loves Ray Cash, Fat Al, Avant, Bone, shit everybody doin the damn thang……. But on the real Ray seems to be a real cool cat but he just not keepin It funky with his fans on his life and that to me kills any chances of validity In this game……… He need’s to talk more about his real life not the pimpin and the fake dope boy/ Scarface story’s I mean my dude Whis Is really outta 125th & Superior(Hell’s Kitchen)/ 146th $ Saint Claire/ 102 & Buckeye off Sophia go and ask about him and his family and cats will tell you…….. Also for the record Bone Is real too I myself seen there hood and seen how they roll In these streets and the street shit Is real with them…….. but they gotta get off that West Coast stuff and really show this Industry how we truly roll down here In the C-town and It aint on swangers and vogues and all that Houston, Texas talk………. Shit…… truthfully Cleveland Is really more of a hip hop based city……. bone only rap real gangsta and fast with the singing cause Eazy E told them to do that so that they would have a gimmick like there own lane…… feel me……… watch tho Sonn-Whis…. Is the truth cuzzin…….. he that lyricist we been waitin to hear…… I couldnt believe when I first heard his music that he was actually from Cleveland until I heard this song he got were he metaphorically uses every letter In Cleveland, Ohio to paint a picture of the city…… absolutely fanominal I never In my life heard no shit like that……… that’s why he on wit Universal right now…….. In a good situation with a strong team holding him down cause we all believe In him……. But yeah Ray……. I got love for you bruh…… but you just gotta kill the Swangin & Clangin shit and the D-boy stories and shoot that shit to us real cuzzin…….. Real always gon recognize real…… “C-town/ Stay down”!!!!!!!!!! 1!!!!!!

    Waaaah, Waaaah,waaaa fuckin’ cryin ass.
    Don’t bust a blood vessel hater. I know what I said, whether it be old or new you and everybody else knows what it means. You’re still a hatin ass dick sucker. No one gives a fuck about you, yo’ niggas or your wack ass label. Face it, you campaign on the blogs and forums because YOU ARE A LAME, BROKE, CHEAP ASS PUSSY
    that CAN’T
    AFFORD anyway else Punk Ass. The problem is not that you’re campaigning on the blogs and forums, it’s that you’re Hatin while campaignin’. Haters reach dead ends.
    Next time get the nut up out your mouth before you decide to start droolin’ and yappin’ BIATCH!!!!!

    Yo first of all realistically the rap game Should be split into 4 coasts: East, West, South, and north. Ray Cash is a Eastside nigga. Just to shut all yall dick heads up! Also Ray Cash is Probebly one of my top 5 rappers. Maybe because I’m still young and I didnt really get a chance to listen to a lot of rappers. All I know is Dis nigga is real as fuck. All the shit I go through in my hood, dis nigga is rappin about in one of his jams. Yall haters need to get a fuckin life.

  • Big Truuf

  • SETHTON

    MAN YALL…….. DO A LOT OF COCK RIDIN ON HERE!! IF YALL LIKED THE BOY ALBUM SO MUCH…… THEN WHY HE ONLY DO 24K? HAHN? CLEVELAND CATS TALK TOO DAMN MUCH BUT WHEN IT’S TIME TO STAND AND SUPPORT YOUR ARTIST YOU DON’T DO IT…… PERSONALLY I THINK RAY CASH NEED TO COME WITH SOME MORE CREATIVE MUSIC INSTEAD OF MAKIN THAT BLOCK BULLSHIT…. AIN’T NOBODY BUT STREET UNEDUCATED PEOPLE TRYNA SIT UP AND LISTEN TO THAT TYPE OF DUMB SHIT. “GROW UP”!!!

  • Mrs Harris

    Nigga ,you just mad cus aint nobody ridin yo dirty ass cock. Chomp Bitch, speak for yourself, how do your uneducated ass know that the real people on here reppin’ Ray ain’t the real people that help him get that 24k. I support all artist that I like, maybe you dont, which probably explains why thats on your mind. Yo’ fool ass probably one of those cappin ass niggas that don’t support nobody ya damn self. So, you GROW THE FUCK UP and stop hatin’ FAGGOT!!! Don’t hate on street niggas, ’cause yo ass could have all the education in the world, but without common sense, which let me quote you don’t get from “furthering your education” you might as well not have any sense at all. Book smarts alone just don’t cut it in the “real world”. You know, that’s out here where everybody else lives, not brown nosing up in corporate americas ass.
