Laced with tracks like "FWM" and "Dear Summer" hip-hop fans can expect to hear detailed lyrics and with an effortless southern flow.

"I consider myself a storyteller, I like to describe the situation, the person or place. Details mean the world to my flow I'm 'The Avalon Don'... me and the U87 (mic) have a connection," says RaRA when asked to describe his flow.

Keep reading below to find out what RaRa has coming up and where to find him on the SXSW stage.


AGHHH: Introduce yourself to our listeners.


RaRa: My name is RaRa. I'm from East Atlanta Zone 6 by way of Zone 3.



AGHHH: When did you know that music was a path that you would be make a career?



RaRa: In 1996 I was 10-years-old. I heard Tupac "Hit'em Up" and the way he was expressing himself let me know immediately that that was exactly what I wanted to do growing up. 



AGHHH:  How did you become a part of Hustle Gang?



RaRa:  Hustling......Tip and I have all the same friends... Killer Mike and Doc were the ones that really pushed for me to get in the room with him. They knew that if he just heard my music that it would be a wrap... and it was.



AGHHH: You're not just a rapper, but you are a producer as well. Who are some of the artist you produced for?



RaRa:  I've produced records for Tip, Meek Mill, French Montana, Iggy, BoB and Quavo from Migos just to name a few.



AGHHH:  Any new projects production wise on the horizon?



RaRa:  French Montana, Iggy, Meek..... to name a few. I want to keep some things secret until it's released.

AGHHH:   Getting back to the rapping aspect of your career, you have a new track out titled "FWM." What does "FWM" stand for?

RaRa:  "FWM" stands for "F*CK WITH ME."



AGHHH:  Who produced the track?



RaRa:  My Big Brother and Mentor Cory Mo, alongside of Honorable C Note.



AGHHH: The video is out, can we except a new single soon?



RaRa:  Yeah the video is out right now on my Youtube Channel "DOPEBOY RA". I actually just released a new single "Dear Summer" on Friday alongside of my debut project - "I Am What I Am," which released Friday as well. I have about four more singles to release which will each be coming out every Friday over the next month.


AGHHH:  So, I always ask this question of first time guest, describe your flow or your approach to the mic?



RaRa:  I would like to think that my flow is similar to Biggie - the way I rhyme and change flow patterns every other four or eight Bars. I consider myself a storyteller, I like to describe the situation, the person or place. Details mean the world to my flow I'm 'The Avalon Don'... me and the U87 (mic) have a connection.



AGHHH:  Do you have any shows or other ventures we should look out for?



RaRa:  SXSW I have a few stages I will be on... It's going to be dope considering this is my first time going and I have so much music to share and the support of legends such as Tip and Trae Tha Truth, to name a few.



AGHHH:  Anything else to add?



RaRa:  Make sure you follow me on Social Media - IG: @DOPEBOYRA, Twitter @1dopeboyra. I like to let my work speak for me. #HUSTLEGANGBUSINESS ALL THE TIME EVERYTIME FOR A LIFETIME.
