Musical career[edit]

2013–present: O.M.M.I.O. series and collaborations[edit]

In 2013, RJ released his debut mixtape O.M.M.I.O (which stands for On My Mama I'm On). The mixtape was hosted and largely produced by DJ Mustard. The first song from this mixtape, "Ride Wit Me" was included and released, as the single. RJ then appeared on the songs; Thank God (Interlude) and When I Was Gone from YG's debut album, My Krazy Life (2014). In July 2014, RJ released his second mixtape, featuring local rappers; Shoota300, JaywhiteT, Vince Staples and more. Takin Niggas Beats (on a contrary to his first mixtape). Unfortunately disagreements between them erupted, which led to RJ dropping their names from the project entirely. The beats on this mixtape were solely from made-up beats from the other rappers that were remixed by RJ. On the same year, DJ Mustard released his debut album 10 Summers, where RJ appeared on these tracks; including Low Low, Throw Your Hood Up and No Reason.[2] At the beginning of 2015, RJ collaborated with Choice to released a critically acclaimed mixtape, Rich Off Mackin. Additionally, RJ appeared on the DJ Mustard's mixtape, titled Ketchup, as well as one of YG's mixtapes Just Re'd Up 2.[3][4] On May 26, 2015, RJ released a mixtape, "O.M.M.I.O. 2", as the sequel to his debut mixtape "O.M.M.I.O". The song "Get Rich" was included and released, as the single. Both of these singles; his 2013's single, "Ride Wit Me" and his 2015's single, "Get Rich", did not chart, both songs received radio airplay throughout the West Coast. He also contributed to the soundtrack for the NBA 2K16's video game by being featured in the original song "You Don't Want It" with frequent collaborator and 10 Summers Records founder DJ Mustard. On May 12, 2016 he released O.M.M.I.O 3 it has 19 tracks including a bonus track "Feda" that's only on SoundCloud. RJ also released TNB 2 (Takin Niggas Beats) on October 11, 2016.[5] On December 15th, 2017 RJ & DJ Mustard released a collaboration named "The Ghetto"
