EDITORS’ NOTES

He may be underappreciated outside of the Bay, but Ray Luv is a local legend who's been doing his thing forever. Back in the late '80s, he was in a group with Tupac called Strictly Dope, and his first album—1993's Who Can Be Trusted—was put out by Mac Dre. He had a handful of successful singles over the years, and he's probably best known for the 1994 jam "Last Night." Deathwish is his first album since the Crimeseen collabo Population Control. It finds the Golden State OG sounding as strong as ever, sharing mic time with fellow Westside veterans like Mac Mall (who appears on three tracks) and the ghost of Furley himself, resurrected from the dead on the aptly titled "Cali Hustle." Both the production and lyricism are classic gangsta party style from start to finish, with standouts like the triumphant "Pushin'," the memory-lane jam "Hi Ray," and the ridiculously catchy "Leave the Club."
