Rich Homie Quan came back with a vengeance. After a lengthy hiatus, the rapper dropped off his official debut Rich As In Spirit. At twenty tracks, there's plenty to digest; Quan manages to keep the journey fresh with a variety of styles. After an early listen, it would appear that the project reaches a peak around the half-way point. The Cassius Jay produced "Achieving" finds Rich like we've never heard him before, proving that his melodic game is top tier. The upbeat banger is reminiscent of Young Thug's Jeffery closer "Kanye West," (a personal favorite), and could very well emerge as a low-key summer smash.
Despite the radio-friendly vibe, Rich Homie Quan never falters on the realness. He recently spoke on how the game was lacking a moral compass, and makes it clear from the jump that he's pushing a positive agenda. "I wake up every day and first and foremost I thank God," opens Quan. "Cause a lot of people didn’t wake up. But I did."

Stay down Quan, I promise this shit here gon' pay off
Hold it down, but I might Harlem shake the hate off
