Rayze was born in Harrisburg aka Gutterville, PA and credits The Hill for his laid back “Passive Aggressive” mentality and assertiveness. These traits are what bring his spit style into existence. Rayze’s style is a mixture of all hip-hop’s elements (song, instrumentation, sharp lyrics, the street and life’s teachings) rolled into one artist. Rayze doesn’t RAP…he provokes emotion.
Rayze, born as Joseph Scott, has been on the music scene since 1994. He started rhyming for fun as a past time during and in-between classes in middle school. Soon it went from fun to a daily ritual. Soon that daily ritual turned into a personal contest, that contest turned into battle ciphers and those battle ciphers turned into creative writing and opened the gate for the love of music that lay dormant in him for so long. “ I always knew I loved music more than most people, I just didn’t know or realize that I was born to do it…until now!”
Throughout Rayze’s musical career he has run into and been to many influential people and places. He went to school with many people like him at Milton Hershey and developed and life-long “family” that urged him on and supported (and continues to support) him throughout the journey. Rayze spent years in Philly going to school for Graphic Arts/Advertising and developing his style, performing at clubs, ciphers and eventually came into contact with a close friend from Delaware who put him in the studio for the first time. From Philly Rayze moved to DC where everything came together. He ran into his musical family just being in the right place at the right time… From there, the rest is history…and from history you get ECLIPSE.
