Taylor Gang's Raven Felix Talks Gaining The Co-Sign From Snoop Dogg, Opens The Wellness 420 Retreat
The Valley rapper readies her follow-up EP ‘Valifornication.’
When it comes to Raven Felix, never judge a book by its cover. The West Coast rapper, who reps the Valley in a petite frame covered with tattoos, has garnered the attention of Snoop Dogg and hip-hop notables. After gaining the official co-sign with her debut Valifornia project, the 20-year old part-Mexican part-Puerto Rican is now the youngest artist on Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang roster.
Readying her follow-up tape Valifornication, Raven talks Snoop Dogg co-sign and being inducted into the smoke hall-of fame, before she lights the stage up at Snoop’s Annual Wellness 420 Retreat in Denver, Colorado.
“GGN was amazing, being able to sit down with someone who is the pinnacle of Westcoast hip-hop and you’re someone who is coming up from the west coast is amazing,” Raven told REVOLT on her first time meeting Snoop.
“I’ve been so fortunate to work with the artists that I have. Snoop treats like me his niece, Wiz treats me like his little sister, and everyone in Taylor Gang treats me like family. It’s dope to be apart of something that is genuine and real, because I know it’s not always like that. It’s really a family.”
