Single: RJMrLA – “Time” ft. Young Thug
The Local SoCal Hero Doesn’t Have Time to Waste in the Latest Single from On God, His Upcoming Album Due July 26th
“RJ has built a huge regional following in the West Coast, perfecting his hard uncompromising Cali street sound on this year’s OMMIO 3.“ – HotNewHipHop
“RJ looks like the next one up in the wild, wild West. Pay attention.” – XXL
“The Los Angeles rapper first captured his city with a slew of local hits—the biggest being his 2015 single “Get Rich”—that proved his mettle without a major label or blog cosigns. Now, with steady assists from his 400 Summers label heads YG and DJ Mustard he uses MrLA to expand his sound, replacing some of the street-acclaimed grittiness of his O.M.M.I.O. mixtapes with radio-ready selections.” – Pitchfork
With a deeply musical flow and a fierce attitude, nobody makes L.A.-style slappers quite like RJMrLA. Refusing to waste what little time he has left, RJ shares “Time,” his latest banger, premiered by Complex. Rocking a rapidfire sing-song atop a bouncing bassline and crackling snares, RJ keeps his eyes on the prize on the track, refusing to succumb to distractions on the road to stardom: “I can’t give six minutes of family time, why?/Cause I’m always on my grind (on my grind grind)/I’m a slave to my own mastermind, why?/Cause I always visualize.” The track features an appearance from Young Thug, who manages to stay in complete control as he veers wildly from one flow to the next. “Time” is the latest single from On God, RJMrLA’s upcoming album, following the HYPEBEAST-premiered rider’s anthem “Rat Race,“ and the personal and revealing “Apartment,” premiered by Complex in June.
His official debut album after several successful mixtapes, including his popular OMMIO (On My Momma I’m On) series and 2017’s Pitchfork-praised The Ghetto, a collaboration with Mustard, On God is a mature effort from RJ, keeping the breakneck flow and propulsive L.A. instrumentals of his old style and foregoing party anthems for heavier thematic content. Featuring appearances from Schoolboy Q, Snoop Dogg, Mozzy, Rich the Kid, G-Eazy, Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, OT Genasis, among others, and production from production from DJ Swish (who’s made hits for YG and Post Malone) and more, On God releases this summer via EMPIRE.

Firmly rooted in the Los Angeles community, RJMrLA is intimately familiar with the hustle. Born and raised in South Central, RJ’s father was a businessman with ties to the Westside Pirus and his grandfather a bootlegger, exposing a young RJ to the grind early on. At the age of nine, RJ began channeling his surroundings into raps after his mother put him on to Snoop Dogg. Moving to Atlanta post-high school, RJ became deeply embedded in the city’s trap culture. Upon his return to Los Angeles in 2013, RJ caught the attention of DJ Mustard, receiving an invitation to join his 10 Summers crew. RJ appeared on several tracks on DJ Mustard’s 10 Summers mixtape series and launched his solo career with the OMMIO (On My Mama I’m On) mixtape series, garnering critical acclaim from the FADER, LA Weekly, XXL, and more. Collaborating with the likes of The Game, Nipsey Hussle, Jeezy, and Ty Dolla $ign, RJ has painted name across the rap game. With his 2017 projects MrLA and The Ghetto, his full-length collaboration with DJ Mustard, RJ is making moves to place himself in the ranks of LA’s finest.
