In any underground market, certain goods become hot commodities and The Blow Up’s Black Market is no exception to that economic rule. Each week we’ll bring you the ‘Coveted Contraband’ from The Black Market (based on your ratings).
Check out this week’s gem Ralphy Davis and continue to light 1-5 stars for future submissions so they can separate themselves as highly coveted contraband!
Artist: Ralphy Davis
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Born in Portland, OR but moved to Seattle a couple weeks after I was born. Wrote my first rap at 9 years old while listening to a Dipset album in my Grandma’s house. I just dropped my 3rd project “Leftlanin’ My Lifestyle” which is available now on all digital outlets, hard copies on da way as we speak!!
Finish this sentence: “When people hear me, they’re probably going to think of: T.I, Nipsey Hussle, Noreaga.
What sparked your inspiration for a music career?
While living in California (bay area) I was involved in a after school music program ran by Joe Tasby from San Francisco. I was brought to professional studios daily at a early age, and began getting a bunch of positive feedback from my peers in middle school. Which led me to believe that making music was the right career to pursue.
What crew do you roll with?
DOB ENT / AYE DOE INC
Who are your go to producers?
Ray Shinez, Dameondaslap, and a few others.
What other special talents can you throw down?
I’m big on fashion, getting ready to drop this clothing line, create movies, and anything else a entrepreneur can do
What separates you from the rest?
How I exercise my confidence on every beat, also the subjects I’m speakin on. As well as how diverse, direct, and unique my sound is.
