Remember the Name (self-released)

In “Music 2 My…,” Rated R calls out the music that made him who is: “Everything from Jimi Hendrix to Madonna … Doggystyle: that’s the kind of rap that makes me want to rap right now.” Why else does he do it? “Just to make ya jump up and down like gas prices.” His debut is nothing new, but consistently good, marked by expressive raps and solid beats.
