Despite his name, Babyface Ray has been an integral part of Detroit's rap community for more than a decade. Hailing from the east side's 6 Mile section, the 29-year-old born Marcellus Register is a staple of both Detroit and couture street rap at large. With his trademark conversational delivery and thoughtful wordplay, Ray has accumulated over 200 million streams in a little under 2 years. Additionally, his raw talent and ever-increasing profile have seen him garner accolades from national press outlets such as Pitchfork, Complex, Hypebeast and more, as well as chart #1 on Billboard heatseekers and in the Rolling Stone Trending #25. 2021 has proven to be Ray's year, unleashing Unf*ckwitable and Unf*ckwitable (Deluxe). The Wavy Gang / EMPIRE release asserted Babyface Ray's influence and command as one of the most compelling voices from the street, culminating with Ray being booked for festivals such as Rolling Loud Miami, NY, and LA, Day in Vegas, and Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash, as well as charting in the top 10 on Apple Music for months.
Ray’s confidence fuels Unf*ckwitable. "I just feel like everything I do and everything that I put my mind to, it's gonna be better than the next person," asserts Babyface Ray. After more than 10 years of grinding, Ray insists on standing out to fans the way he has with peers. In recent months, Ray has spent time with Future in Atlanta. "He just reached out, and we ended up getting cool," he notes. "I'm very appreciative of Future and everything that he's done for me; he's a mentor. He's been through things and doesn't want me to make the mistakes he's made."
Future isn’t the only superstar to gravitate to Ray, with Jack Harlow, Moneybagg Yo, Kash Doll, Est Gee, Hit Boy, and Murda Beatz rounding out the features on Unf*ckwitable.
Babyface Ray is intent on leaving his mark in the years to come. He's wiser, sharper, and still unf*ckwithable.
