Raoul Juneja, aka Deejay Ra, is a hip-hop deejay who brings his credibility to many causes he believes in. Being instrumental on many topics, here is a person in the hip-hop culture who has set out to make a difference and backs up his convictions with action.

Deejay Ra has brought many topics to the ‘eyes’ of the hip-hop community. His work is based on not only providing information but he truly has a sense of wanting to inform and help empower the culture of hip-hop.

Deejay Ra is more than a deejay. He is a social activist with many messages. His ‘Hip-Hop Literacy Campaign’ is centered on encouraging teens to read. Deejay Ra says “put down the gangsta rap CD and pick up the gangster fiction.”
