Ralphy Davis

Hunnidz n’ Nuthin Less

Released 2014

I discovered the music of Ralphy Davis only recently when I saw him nominated for a “Hip-Hop Oscar” at the Seattle Sound Music Awards in November. Hunnidz n’ Nuthin Less, his 2014 mixtape, with its cover art of rubber bands, is unsurprisingly a meditation on hustle, with aspirations of fame and cars and millions. Ralphy has a fine flow and engaging verses, and the production is full of smooth drums and samples. I’m curious to hear what’s next from Ralphy–you have the mic, our attention and an award nomination: what’s next after the posturing, the fame, the millions? Those seem inevitable with this talent.
