You could say 2022 is the year of Babyface Ray.
Even though he’s been rapping for over a decade, his hard work seems to be paying off this year. He released his album to critical acclaim FACE at the beginning of this year and got a place in the lineup XXL Journal Freshman Class of 2022
Well, next month, Babyface Ray will face off against Bay Area rapper Larry June in a bicoastal battle of the titans. Red Bull has announced the return of its SoundClash series, which pits two artists against each other in a musical battle.
“I’m just excited to put the D on and show the world that we’re everything. History in the making! It will be something special, for sure. We want to thank Red Bull for pushing us to do this,” said Babyface Ray in a press release.
There will be two tours, each of which will have the opportunity to perform on stage in their hometown. Still, the battle is a lot of fun, with Larry June and Babyface Ray also performing their collaborative track “Extra of Um,” which was released on Larry June’s Spaceships on the blade album in August.
The first round will be held in Detroit on Saturday, October 15 at the Russell Industrial Center, 1600 Clay St., Detroit. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at redbull.com/events. There is a limit of four tickets per customer.
