Thanks to his unparalleled energy and infectious sing-song flow, RJ is one of the most popular rappers in the City of Angels. Rising out of bed to make mischief on the Lord’s Day, RJ transforms the church to the club in “Thank God.” Teaming up with Memphis wild card Blac Youngsta, who brings an unhinged and manic energy to the proceedings, RJ leads his block like a congregation as they move to DJ Mustard‘s beat. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
“Thank God” is the latest single from RJ’s recent MrLA album, following “Brackin,” which Pitchfork praised as “L.A. rap at its finest” and Spotify placed on its Most Necessary playlist. MrLA is the first release from 400 Summers, a joint venture between DJ Mustard’s 10 Summers and YG‘s 4 Hunnid Records. Featuring appearances from YG, Quavo, Schoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign, Blac Youngsta, and Earl Swavey, MrLA is a trunk-rattling, club-busting collection of tracks, packed front-to-back with brilliant, sing-song bars.
Born in Los Angeles but with deep roots in Atlanta, RJ is comfortable with many modes of street rap. A multiple sport star in high school, RJ moved to Atlanta after graduating and became deeply embedded with trap culture. Upon his return in 2013, RJ linked up with DJ Mustard, who liked his style and recruited him to join the producer’s 10 Summers crew. A favorite of L.A.’s Power 106 hip-hop station, RJ heated up the airwaves with hits like “Get Rich,” his collaboration with fellow 10 Summers rapper Choice and HBK’s Iamsu!, last year’s “Flex,” which garnered over 4 million views on YouTube, and “Ride Wit Me,” featuring YG, which has over 4 million streams on Spotify. Most recently prior to MrLA, RJ appeared on “Get Out Yo Feelins,” a highlight from YG’s Red Friday mixtape. MrLA is available to purchase and stream right now at your favorite online music store.
