Ray Vaughn – Not Allowed

Download Not Allowed Mp3 By Ray Vaughn

Top Dawg Entertainment formally announces Ray Vaughn as their latest signee and may be saying farewell to their star pupil but the label continues to expand. This week, they announced the signing of Ray Vaughn, a Long Beach native who serves as the first addition to the label since 2019.

Some people say that they’ve made it when they achieve fame or earn a lot of money, but according to TDE’s new signee Ray Vaughn, teaming up with one of the music industry’s most critically acclaimed labels was what did it for him. “MOMMA I MADE IT ! Imma TOP DAWG now,” the Long Beach artist said on Wednesday when officially announcing that he had signed to TDE, but the music that accompanied his announcement was even more intriguing. For his first official move with TDE, Ray Vaughn dropped the brief, three-track EP Peer Pressure, and from the opening track, the rising rapper’s infectious charisma immediately pulls you in.

The statement from the label says Vaughn signed with TDE in 2020 and has been “patiently committing himself to mastering his craft” since. “With his TDE status now announced, Ray’s excited to let the music speak for itself,” it reads. According to TDE, the Long Beach, California, native has been a part of the family since 2020, but took his time, mastering his craft and patiently waiting for his turn to debut. It proved to be a smart move to have Vaughn wait because TDE said he’s “ready to embrace the challenge of running with the Top Dawgs.” TDE also unleashed Vaughn’s debut EP, Peer Pressure.

The way in which Ray Vaughn delivers the opening lines of “Not Allowed” is akin to how Meek Mill approached the first half of “Dreams & Nightmares (Intro).” The Long Beach artist raps with an insatiable hunger while dropping witty bars about TDE and ultrasounds, and when the beat finally comes in, he absolutely erupts with energy. Coupled with a refrain like “I’m rich in spirit ain’t no way I’m gon’ die broke,” Ray Vaughn’s first statement as a TDE artist is a promising one.

Quotable Lyrics:

  • I’m a walking cheat code, turn a nun to a freak ho (Freak ho)
  • Been blunt like a pre-roll (Pre-roll), I’m the neighborhood hero
  • It’s funny how I got all this drive and, back in the day, I got repo’d
  • Help I got, nigga, zero, and I do it big like fee-fo
