“I’m buying land, property, I got blue racks on me, Just like I’m playin Monopoly, Hell nah they ain’t stopping me,” Rich the Kid raps, clearly pointing out that he’s after the cash, and he wants to enjoy life.
According to the press release, “Earlier this year, Rich The Kid joined forces with Fivio Foreign and Jay Critch on their track ‘Still Movin’.’ Sampling ‘Please Mr Postman’ by Carpenters, ‘Still Movin’’ is about the lifestyle, wealth, and success of the three rappers.”
Rich the Kid was born in Queens, and he found himself immersed in the street rap scene.
“At just nine years old, Rich was taken by their slick wordplay,” reads his bio. “New York may have given him his penchant for lyrics, but Atlanta gave him his swag, as he was bound for the South at 11 and started listening to artists like T.I. and Outkast thanks to his uncle. Rich started creating his own music and promoted it through social media, but in order to double down on getting his songs played, he networked heavily and built relationships to get his music heard. In March of 2018, he cut the intoxicating track ‘New Freezer,’ Kendrick Lamar hopped on the track shortly thereafter and a star was born. The double platinum track was followed by the triple platinum colossal single ‘Plug Walk’ later in 2018. The World Is Yours album debuted that same year, followed by The World Is Yours 2 in 2019. In March of 2020, he dropped Boss Man just as the pandemic leaned in, boasting collaborations with the likes of Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and several others. ‘The pandemic allowed me to get my mojo back and build a body of work,’ Rich explains. ‘The next album I’m releasing is from songs I’ve recorded through quarantine up until now.'”
