‘Rags 2 Riches’ is the debut single to come from rap­per Lay B. Telling the story of how he over­came adversity, ‘Rags 2 Riches’ was inspired by Lay B’s per­son­al story. Put­ting him­self out there with his lyr­ics, Lay B fits his words cohes­ively with the beat and vibe of the track, show­ing his skill and dex­ter­ity. Raw and upbeat, ‘Rags 2 Riches’ was made pos­sible with the sup­port of Lay B’s new label Glob­al Status who pushed him to deliv­er the highest stand­ard of work and high­light his assert­ive and hyp­not­ic flow.
Straight out of the Streets of Long Branch, Lay B is a Hip-Hop & Trap rap­per­/­sing­er-song­writer. His south­ern-based sound and Influ­en­tial rhymes are often com­pared to Money­bagg Yo and Tee Grizzly. Cit­ing Tupac, Big­gie Smalls and Lil Wayne as his key influ­ences, he has also found inspir­a­tion from mod­ern artists such as Lil Baby, Drake and NBA Young Boy. He attrib­utes his love of music to his dad, steal­ing his tapes as a child and using them to record. Deeply per­son­al and authen­t­ic, his sound takes from clas­sic hip hop and gives it a new and mod­ern iden­tity. ‘Rags 2 Riches’ marks the start of a new chapter for Lay B, who has been fea­tured in Hot New HipHop, Up and com­ing 100, This is 50, and has an inter­view com­ing up with DJ small eyes.
