You've probably surmised from the song title that soul legend Ray Charles was an inspiration for this number. However Chiddy's brother, Cheeseburger Don, also had a bearing on the naming of this song. The pair explained to The Boombox
Chiddy: "Basically it was a late night studio session. We were all smoking a little bit. [Xaphoon] actually wasn't there, he had come earlier. At the end of the night [Cheeseburger Don] had these shades on."
Xaphoon: "Basically how this worked was, Chiddy was writing. Cheeseburger had the shades on smoking, he's smoking or whatever and because it's so late and it's 5[AM], he just kinda passes out."
Chiddy: "I just looked at him like, "You're on your Ray Charles right now." It was on a whole other level. And then I went into the booth and laid the song down."
