PLU Open Mic feat. Ray Knight

June 18, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

Hot summer nights at Open Mic: bringing over one of the freshest voices in underground hip hop, Ray Knight will lay it all out on our stage tonight. For everyone else, sign up is free starting at 20h – come early if you want to get a spot: we fill up quick quick quick!

 

Ray Knight is a hip hop artist best known for his creative storytelling ability, thought provoking lyrics, and passionate delivery.

The son of a Jamaican father and African American mother, Ray Knight was born and raised in Fresno, CA.

His first self released mixtape, From Me, To You, was released in 2012, with themes focusing heavily on the black experience in modern day America, the complications of love, and the uplifting of the black community. These themes are prominent in almost all of his music and art, resulting in the self proclaimed title, The iLL Revolutionary. Ray Knight’s goal as an artist is to unite people and bring about the betterment of the black community by speaking truth and spreading a message of positivity.

His journey has thus far brought him many places and given him a vast array of experiences. One that ranges from central California, to the garrisons and countryside of Jamaica where his father hails from, a life on the road in Texas, and traveling the world to places like Egypt and the UK. On nothing but a few dollars and a thirst for knowledge, it is these experiences that he shares with the world through the culture that’s become his life’s canvas, hip hop.
