Ray Jr.'s Busy Week Includes New Record Deal and Mixtape

Posted By on Wed, Feb 15, 2012 at 8:56 AM


It's a good time to be a Cleveland rapper.

First, Diddy says to Machine Gun Kelly, "Yo, make a record on my label."

And now Ray Jr. has been signed to Def Jam Records.

The Unofficial Mayor of Cleveland, as he's known to fans, will release his debut album on the legendary hip-hop label sometime this year.

Details of the LP are coming in the next few weeks, as is a remix of the song "Sloppy" with Big Sean and 2Chainz.

In the meantime, Ray Jr.'s latest mixtape, Elected, comes out on Friday. It will be available here as a free download.

And if that's not soon enough for you, you can listen to the album's first single, "Livin," below or download it here. —Michael Gallucci
