Raymond Taylor was born on the 31st of October 1990 in Miami, Florida. Born and raised in Florida, Raymond spent much of his early life playing basketball. During his senior year in 2012, Raymond decided to sit out to pursue a career in NBA Basketball. But he withdrew from the 2012 Draft and joined the Florida International University. After joining the FIU in 2012, Raymond had to sit out the 2013-2014 season due to the NCAA rules. The 5’6″ point guard announced in January of 2014 that his college basketball career was effectively over.
Life away from Basketball
After deciding that the NBA was not his cup of tea, Raymond started eyeing other avenues. In the wake, Raymond turned to music and decided to make a name for himself. He is an artist to keep an eye on in the coming days. Focusing on the hip-hop genre, Raymond goes by the stage name Ray Almighty. He is a part of the RockStarr music group and puts out regular tracks under the name of Team Sport Creatives in Soundcloud. But in complete contrast to his genre of music, Raymond is a huge fan of John Lennon. He is also a huge fan of the Beatles and views them as his musical idols.
Meeting and Dating Trina
It is not yet known when and where Raymond and Trina met for the first time. But if we were to guess, we are sure it had something to do with music. But it needed some external intervention to bring Trina and Raymond together. Trina’s co-star Joy Young wanted to go on a double date with Trina. But Trina who was single at the time had no date to go with. So Joy brought in Ray. For a while, Trina and Ray remained friends but Trina decided to pursue the obvious spark between the pair.
Trina and Raymond are not exactly close to each other in terms of age. The pair have a 16-year age difference. While Raymond is 29 years of age, Trina is 46. But the pair have managed to stay together despite the age difference and seem to enjoy each other’s company. The couple has been dating since 2017 and announced their engagement in September 2021.
