An influential performer and producer, Rich Rick has collaborated with some of the most widely sought after urban music recording artists including, Ty Dolla $ign, Ray J., AD, Omarion and B2K.
This song is important for Rich Rick because he went from drive by’s, incarceration stints, lawsuits and being a “playa” in the game to participating in Christmas Toy Giveaways with Mayor Antonio Villaragosa in his old neighborhood where he used to menace.
