Hailing from the DC Metropolitan Area, 22-year-old upcoming recording artist, R.A.E. (pronounced Ray), aka “Real And Explicit” is breaking the barriers in music with a fresh swag of raw rhymes infused with melodic chants. The young singer/ rapper began her music career in the winter of 2016 recording her first song by doing a remix to the infamous single, “Panda”, by Desiigner and it was there where her career took off.
R.A.E.'s first debut single titled, “Flexxin”, was released January 2017 when she was formally known as Blu Rae and became the new bop within the streets of the DMV. In the summer of 2018, she changed her name from Blu Rae to R.A.E. to give her stage name and her music a deeper approach towards her lyricism by presenting a message and meaning that’s relatable to an audience.
R.A.E. has performed at venues such as house parties, local clubs, and bar venues, and showcases across the city of DC as well as performances in New York, Atlanta, Miami, and her next stop; Indiana! R.A.E. is currently working on building her modeling career and released her first EP titled “It’s All In The Name,” on February 3, 2019, and now the young star is preparing for her video shoot for her latest single, “Champion”, and many more opportunities to come! Buckle up because this is only the beginning, we are expecting big things from this budding emcee in the next years to come.
