Raymond Smith, famously known as Rai Smith is an American professional music artist and songwriter from Queens, NY. He’s known for his new smash single “Brush Em”.

When I first heard “Brush Em” I was amazed with the production, the world play, and the confidence on the whole track. The way people reacted to it was a sight to see. This is definitely the song to look out for in the next few months.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years, I see myself not only being one of the biggest household names, I see myself opening the doors for artist much like myself. I went through a lot learning the ropes of this game, I want to provide more to protect the artists.

What legacy do you wish to leave behind?

I wish to inspire people to go for their dreams. There were months I slept in the studio, worked & hustled to get to where I wanted to be. I’m still applying pressure, we aren’t done yet and I want to help people see they can do the same for their own craft.
