Ray J tells Smooth magazine that his sister Brandy saved him from a life of crime and killing when he became a member of Los Angeles’ notorious Bloods gang. “A lot of young black kids get caught up in the ghetto, and I did,” he said. “But luckily, I was able to go tell my momma and Brandy right before anything crazy happened. I told them I was in a lot of trouble and I really wanted to get away because I felt something dangerous was going to happen. Something tragic. There was a lot of gunplay and I was getting shot at a lot. So I moved to North Hollywood with my godsister TRACY, and from there, I changed my life.”
