Ray Luv is a Bay Area rapper. Considered one of the founders and straight up legend of Bay Area rap, Ray Luv is a native of the West 9th district of Santa Rosa, California. Ray became well known during the explosion of Bay Area rap in the early 1990's. His 1993 single "Get Ma Money On!" off the Who Can Be Trusted? EP was very popular and earned lots of radio play in the San Francisco Bay Area on radio station 106.1 KMEL. One of the producers of that album was the Vallejo native Khayree who started the record label "Young Black Brotha" (Mac Dre, Mac Mall, etc).
Ray Luv has countless guest appearances, including songs on the Master-P produced collaboration "West Coast Bay Boyz" and the soundtrack to the movie "New Jersey Drive" that reached platinum status.
In 1995, Ray released another album "Forever Hustlin". Ray Luv was part of the rap scene that grew out of the Bay Area during the early 1990's joining such acts as Mac Mall, Dubee Aka Sugawolf, E-40, Mac Dre, Young Lay, JT Tha Bigga Figga, RBL Posse and Master P, to name a few.
In 2008, Ray is back in the studio working on his solo project as well as lead of a rock/hip-hop based group, Crimeseen. Ray is also co-host to a Bay Area television show, "PUSHIN' THE BAY TV" (Channel 26, 1st & 3rd Fridays, 12am).
I want to show love and respect to every member on this and every other 2pac site in the world.
It is a beautiful sight to see so many revolutionary minded critical thinkers engaging here.
I can't wait for the opportunity to interract we all of you in the near future and hopefully bring something new to a already amazing page.
Right now I'm in the studio trying to finish several projects at once but I wanted to take a moment to thank everybody for the adds and comments.

When u get a minute you have to share one of your funniest memories of Pac. I'm sure you have some, I hope you do anyway. When you were around him, did u know right away how big he'd become. Did you see signs of the legend he has become?
"THUGLIFE is an aphorism of the reality Tupac realized. THE HATE U GIVE LITTLE INFANTS FUCKS EVERYONE. Self explanation hate and oppression fucks everyone it is not productive. Remove the hate people be acting right- Tupac"
