Rayven Justice’s latest album, Do It Justice, is a collection of glossy R&B club bangers, but the project has a somber backstory. Justice penned it as an homage to his brother, Raymen, who was tragically killed in his family’s East Oakland neighborhood when he was a teenager. In the wake of the tragedy, Justice said in a previous interview with the Express that he felt motivated to bring his and his brother’s shared dreams of music stardom to fruition (see “His Brother’s Keeper,” 2/24/2016). Do It Justice is a sleek collection of fourteen sexy, seductive tracks that are perfect for a summer pool party, with features from established Bay Area artists such as Keyshia Cole as well as new talent like Surfa Solo. Justice performs at Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco on July 1.
