Earlier this year, Top Dawg Entertainment added on Ray Vaughn to their now-iconic roster, and the Long Beach emcee wasted little time showing everyone why he deserved the spot. First came the three-track EP Peer Pressure, followed by a heart-stopping freestyle for Power 106’s L.A. Leakers — fans were also able to enjoy a visual for the Peer Pressure standout “Tap,” which saw Vaughn delivering some seriously transparent bars over production from D Cross, Roark Bailey, Boobie, and K RICH:

“I’m supposed to be scared of a DM? Nigga, last year, I buried my BM, my brother just caught him a body, I’m hopin’ that one day they free him, I know real niggas on lock-up, first-grader book, we do pop-ups, that bitch ain’t even got label, but she gon’ still try to shop us, don’t give a fuck ’bout them niggas who pussy, don’t give a fuck ’bout the ones with the bags, don’t give a fuck ’bout them niggas who claimed it…”

Earlier this week, Ray Vaughn added to that with the Tariq Beats-produced “59th & Bethany,” which sees him continuing his penchant for letting off multi-layered rhymes that bring you into his world so vividly, you’d think you were watching it all unfold in a theater:

“222, 59th and Bethany home, datin’ somebody who thought she could never be wrong, Ten Commandments, what she said is settin’ in stone, I woulda never made it if I had left her alone, I woulda never started rapping in the car if she ain’t cheat, I woulda never seen me get a million views in like a week, I woulda never made a name for myself and became unique, I woulda never opened my eyes fully, I woulda peaked, I couldn’t fathom it, had me feelin’ inadequate, kinda got used to not having shit…”

Check it all out below, along with a Gerald Hatch-directed visual to match.
