Ray Tyson (born 16 April 1972), better known by his stage name Ray Luv, is an American rapper and record producer from Santa Rosa, California. Ray Luv performed alongside Tupac Shakur in the group Strictly Dope early in their careers, and it was Shakur that gave Ray his stage name.

He released his debut EP, Who Can Be Trusted?, in 1992 on Strictly Business Records. Following its release, he served ten months imprisonment. After being released, he signed to Strictly Business' successor Young Black Brotha Records, on which he produced his debut studio album, Forever Hustlin', in 1995. Despite receiving distribution by a major label, Atlantic, it failed to attain a great deal of commercial success. Ray Luv's subsequent releases have been put out on independent labels.
