Arthur Rays (@Arthurrays) ‘In a War’

unnamed (2)

Hailing out of Pheonix Arthur Rays cuts through the boasting and ego of many rap artists on his track ‘In a War’ and instead takes his life experience and writes genuinely about it to devastating effect. As a young father it is obvious he has struggled to provide for those he loves and that is an all too common problem that many can relate to. Rays does an excellent job of conveying the frustration of following your passion without receiving any financial compensation with lines like  “your kids paint a picture of a perfect family and put on a fucking eviction notice.” A manipulated sample of a Regina Spektor song provides a gloomy back drop for the heart felt subject matter and brings a sorrowful beauty to the track.
