With a knack for organizing his thoughts into sharp-tongued slappers, RJMrLA shares “Rat Race,” his new video. An airy and vibey summer jam, “Rat Race” focuses on the practical misconception of living a life of luxury.
In the video, RJ shows us a day in the life in the projects from his point of view, as he rhymes on the roof, hits up a corner store, and meets with his homie and his homie’s model girlfriend as they exchange currency in the streets. “Rat Race” is the latest preview of On God, RJMrLA’s upcoming debut album, following the personal and revealing single “Apartment.”
After several successful mixtapes, including his popular OMMIO (On My Momma I’m On) series and 2017’s The Ghetto, a collaboration with Mustard, On God is a mature effort from RJ, keeping the breakneck flow and propulsive L.A. instrumentals of his old style and foregoing party anthems for heavier thematic content. Featuring production from DJ Swish, and appearances from ScHoolboy Q, Young Thug, Snoop Dogg, Mozzy, Rich the Kid, Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, and OT Genasis, On God releases this summer.
