Scoot-E-bikes are set to release in 2020 and projected to earn over $200 million, then $2 billion over the next two years. Ray J’s Raytroniks Corporations had a bump in 2017. According to HNHH a former business partner of Ray J, Jean Paul, sued Ray J for starting a competing company. However, HNHH reports that the two settled for an undisclosed amount.
