GoGeddit president and founder Richie Burke sat down with Milwaukee rapper Ray Nitti, who will be opening for Ludacris on July 2 at the Miller Lite Oasis at 8 p.m.

Nitti tells Burke about his upbringing and his journey from the Virgin Islands, where he was born and raised, to Milwaukee.

It was here where Nitti got his start in the music industry after learning to express himself through poetry at the Milwaukee youth organization Urban Underground.

After many years of working toward becoming a well-known hip hop artist, Nitti got his national breakthrough with his single, "Bow."

He's now very involved with Milwaukee's youth and the local community, saying he sees great potential in the city and is striving to do what he can to help.
