An influential figure on the Atlanta streets, the energetic, helium-voiced Ralo is improving as a rhymer with every track. Foregoing ice-cold trap sounds for an organ-and-guitar Dirty South instrumental, Ralo delivers a mission statement with “Rain Storm,” his latest single. Featuring a defiant and melodic chorus from rising star Youngboy Never Broke Again, “Rain Storm” finds Ralo giving thanks to God and his Famerica crew, threatening haters, and boasting about all the ways he gets paid. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Premiered by The FADER, ‘Rain Storm” is the latest track from Diary of the Streets 3, Ralo’s upcoming album, following “Die Real,” a Complex-premiered track featuring Young Dolph and Trouble. Featuring appearances from Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Young Dolph, Boosie Badazz, YFN Lucci, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Trouble, Lil Baby, Philthy Rich, Key Glock, Jay Fizzle, and more, and with production from the likes of Zaytoven, Cassius Jay, and Twysted Genius, Diary of the Streets 3 arrives on February 9th.
Born and raised in The Bluff, a notoriously dangerous neighborhood in West Atlanta recently featured in the film Snow On the Bluff, Ralo (neé Terrell Davis) provided for his family at a young age, selling CDs and DVDs on the streets while honing his rap skills. Unfortunately, his youthful indiscretions caused him to spend much of his young life in and out of jail. After emerging from prison for the final time in 2015, Ralo found Islam, and he dedicated his life to making the streets a safer place through his music and his Famerica organization. In 2017, Ralo teamed up with Gucci Mane to release Ralo LaFlare, which featured appearances from heavy-hitters like Young Thug, Young Dolph Lil Durk, Fetty Wap and others. In November, Ralo teamed up with DJ Kutt Throat to release Plugged In With The Cartel, which featured appearances from Young Thug, DJ Luke Nasty, Lil Baby, Young Greatness, Casino, Lotto Savage, Sy Ari Da Kid, and others. With his unique mic presence, his undeniable talent, and the respect of the best and brightest in the ATL scene, Ralo’s star will only continue to rise with Diary of the Streets 3.
