This week we have a great conversation with rapper Fat Ray of the almighty Bruiser Brigade. We are fans of Ray’s album Santa Barbara and his streetwise, verbose approach to rapping. Bruiser Brigade had a breakout year last year, with each member releasing memorable solo albums as well as their excellent crew album TV62. Fat Ray talks to us about Detroit, the legacy of J Dilla, his chemistry with the Brigade’s secret weapon, producer Raphy, and much more. The fellas also take listener questions sourced from our patreon subscribers. Beats this week were submitted by Homage CVG and we appreciate the contribution. DBRP is brought to you by the Stony Island Audio network.
