Great stories often lead to powerful artistic expression. Global Status Inc signee Lay B has recently released his first rap track on all streaming services. The upcoming rapper has channeled his journey with rapping through this incredibly well-built and executed joint, titled “Rags 2 Riches.” Lay B’s brother played a major role in his development as an artist, consistently sharing his opinion, constructive criticism and advice, to help him improve to reach his full-potential. As Lay B himself says, he went “from a mediocre form of rap to going all-in with it, and being able to merge all kinds of forms of rap” into his signature sound.
An event that completely changed his life was his incarceration, making him reassess his priorities in life, and radically changing his behavior towards working hard for what he really strives for in life. His inspiring story and music are two elements that are beautifully reflected on “Rags 2 Riches,” setting the tone for everything that is going to come next.
