Los Angeles rapper RJ is up next. Pushing the new Cali sound alongside fellow Southlanders DJ Mustard and YG, the melodic wordsmith’s name is growing heavier by the day. Setting the Golden State on fire with his OMMIO mixtape series, the 33-year-old emcee released three projects in four years on his way up the rap game’s vaunted ladder. His latest project, MrLA, is RJ’s first major album, and can be found now on your favorite streaming service. But as the old adage goes, hard work never stops, and RJ is only getting started.

On the latest episode of GGN, RJ stops by the studio to burn one down with Snoop, kicking game and soaking up stories from the West Coast OG.

Get in tune as the SoCal natives sort out a future collaboration, discuss how difficult it is to be pigeonholed by music labels, and talk about the finer points of video game soundtracks. As their conversation grows, RJ turns the table on the Doggfather, asking his own questions about the connection between the South and the West. Check out the rest of the video above to find exactly out how RJ is walking the same path Snoop blazed.
