Born and raised in Seattle’s Central District, MC Porter Ray creates highly introspective hip-hop reflecting on his tumultuous life experiences. His nimbly delivered raps often touch on intense personal subjects, but they’re backed by dreamy, atmospheric music. Ray has been writing and rapping for most of his life, but he didn’t begin releasing material until 2013, several years after he lost both his father and younger brother. Mixtapes BLK GLD, WHT GLD, and RSE GLD all appeared that year, followed by Fundamentals in 2014. He signed to Sub Pop after meeting Ishmael Butler (Digable Planets, Shabazz Palaces) and appeared on THEESatisfaction’s second Sub Pop album EarthEE. As Ray worked on his proper debut album for the label, his EP Nightfall was released independently in 2015, with a vinyl release by German label Vinyldigital.de in 2016. Another mixtape, Electric Rain, also appeared that year. Ray’s Sub Pop debut Watercolor arrived in 2017. – Paul Simpson (All Music)
