BET reveals Babyface Ray as its BET Amplified artist for April 2022. BET Amplified is BET Music’s stamp of approval on the next big thing in music. The rising Detroit-based rapper is known for his prolific output, his dedication to the Detroit scene, and his slice-of-life lyrics. After multiple mixtape releases, he reached a new level of exposure with his 2021 Billboard charting EP Unfuckwitable, marked by guest features from Kash Doll, Moneybagg Yo, and past BET Amplified Artist: EST Gee.
With his breakthrough album, FACE that dropped in January and being hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the “best rap albums” of the year, Babyface Ray can now add BET Amplified Artist to his list of accolades.
As a BET Amplified artist, he will receive BET Music’s support across multiple BET campaigns and platforms including BET, BET Her, BET Jams, BET Soul, BET.com, BET Socials and BET’s Official YouTube Page.
Babyface Ray joined Team Eastside straight out of high school alongside Peezy, kick-starting a near constant outpouring of music in 2014. However, it wasn’t until his 2015 mixtape MIA Season that he broke through and found his audience. In subsequent years, Babyface Ray would release numerous projects, including 2017’s Ghetto Wave and 2019’s MIA Season 2, all of which cemented him as a Detroit rap staple.
Previous BET Amplified Artists include Blxst, Coi Leray, Masego, Muni Long, Snoh Aalegra, Tems and many more.
