Passed out party-goer wants to set the record straight

Passed Out Party-Goer Wants to Set the Record Straight

MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. - Ray Hulin tells FOX 17 that the first time he realized he had become an Internet sensation, he wasn't thrilled. Since then, he has learned to embrace it.

FOX 17 featured Hulin, 27, while he was passed on the floor of James Taylor's house in Mecosta County after a rave at Taylor's house the day before. The clip was featured on Fox News Channel, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and The E! Network. Countless web articles have been published, with the interview being viewed more than a million times in less than a week.

Hulin, who goes by the rap name "Ratchet," is signed with a Grand Rapids-based record company called Morlock Records. His group PartieBoiz has been performing across the state all summer. Hulin said that his group was originally asked to perform at Project P, but the performance was cancelled at the last minute.

"I feel like I lasted longer than anybody," Hulin said. "Yeah, I might have passed out earlier in the night, but I woke up and kept drinking."

Hulin said that he agrees with Taylor's statement to FOX 17 about not forcing anybody to attend the massive party.

"I didn't force anything down anyone's throat. I ain't make you do what you wanted to do. He didn't make me pass out on this floor. You know what I'm talking about? I passed out on my own."

Hulin said that he lost both of his cell phones at the party and was forced to walk about five hours back to his home in Montcalm County. He said that the next day he realized he was all over national TV.

"Once I got my phones and I see everyone is plugging me, 'Ratchet, I swear to God, this is you.' 'Ratchet, is this you?' 'Ratchet, Ii swear this is you,'"

When the FOX 17 clip was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host himself made a joke about Hulin not waking up anytime soon. Kimmel said, " If he doesn't move by Thursday, call someone."

Hulin had a response to being the butt of the joke. "Hey, Jimmy Kimmel, I woke up before Thursday, and I'm still moving. PartieBoiz in the building bro," said Hulin.

Charges have been filed against three organizers of the party attended by more than two thousand people ;and dubbed Project P on social media.

"I don't feel like they should have got arrested," Hulin said. "I understand they held a big-ass party. It's not no reason to get locked up."

Hulin said that to any critics who believe the moment on camera was edited or staged, it was real as real can be.

"I was really laying there, bro. That's where I was at," said Hulin.

Hulin said that if and when there is a round three of Project P, he better be a main performer.

To anyone looking to plan the next party for the record books, be forwarned that law enforcement is closely monitoring social media and plans to shut down any future party before it starts.

The way this kid talks I would venture to say that he needs to slow down, he can't really afford to lose to many more brain cells.
