The Song:
Fine-tuning his melodic and empathetic approach to trap music for the past three years, Ralo earned the respect and admiration of some of Atlanta’s most notable names. Teaming up with kindred spirit Young Thug for an inspirational trap power ballad, Ralo shares “See The Light (Pt. 2).” Good friends and frequent collaborators, Thug brings out the best performance from Ralo, as Ralo’s cadences mesh seamlessly with Thug’s catchy melody. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, “See The Light (Pt. 2)” finds the rappers digging deep into their personal lives, with Thug emotionally recounting his grandfather’s battle with cancer, and Ralo’s insistence that riches can’t buy happiness: “Just because I have money that shit don’t wash away my problems.” “See The Light (Pt. 2)” is the latest single from Diary of the Streets 3Ralo’s upcoming mixtape, following XXL-premiered “Dream Last Night,” which boasts a guest spot from YFN Lucci, the Youngboy Never Broke Again-featuring, FADER-premiered Rain Storm,” Die Real,” a Complex-premiered track featuring Young Dolph and Trouble.

Growing as a rhymer with every track, the project is a lyrical level-up for the young emcee, reveling in slice-of-life autobiographical details, boisterous flexes, and unique punchlines.

The Background:
Ralo’s’ music is a combination of ingenuity and power. He has worked with acts such as Gucci Mane, FutureShawty LoYoung ThugLil Uzi Vert21 SavageLil YachtyJefé (Shy Glizzy), and Young Scooter. This experience has given Ralo the opportunity to prove to his fans that he has what it takes to surpass some of the more popular mainstream and independent artists out today. His most recent project, Famerican Gangster 2, a follow up to 2016’s accomplished Diary of the Streets II, came out on February 12th.

Born and raised in The Bluff, a notoriously dangerous neighborhood in West Atlanta recently featured in the film Snow On the Bluff, Ralo Laflare (neé Terrell Davis) provided for his family at a young age, selling CDs and DVDs on the streets while honing his rap skills. Unfortunately, his youthful indiscretions caused him to spend much of his young life in and out of jail. After emerging from prison for the final time in 2015, Ralo found Islam, and he dedicated his life to making the streets a safer place through his music. After gaining notoriety in the Atlanta trap scene working with artists such as Future and Young Scooter, Ralo founded #Famerican, a music movement and community foundation under his direction. Signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimo Records, Ralo Laflare represents a more empathetic take on trap music, balancing street tales with a deep sense of morality.
