Rich The Kid is on the rise, hitting the sandbox with big players like Migos and Lil Wayne.
The man may not be able to understand the way his plug talks, but his social skills are far from lacking. Rich The Kid has been active in a bevy of scenes, playing a pivotal role in sparking the careers of Jay Critch, Famous Dex, YBN Almighty Jay, and more. In truth, the self-styled Kid moves more like an adolescent, collaborating with heavyweights like Kendrick Lamar on his meme-creating "New Freezer." The Rich Forever Music CEO is no stranger to generosity, but it seems like the time is nigh for Rich to focus on himself. In fact, the young rapper is in the midst of readying his debut solo album, driven by the lead-off single "Plug Walk."
Rich recently hit up Power 106 to chop it up with Cruz, and the pair discussed a manner of great and important things. It was revealed that Rich's album would feature the likes of Migos, Khalid, and the recently revitalized Lil Wayne (whose recent back-to-back Dedication efforts proved he could still out-rap ninety percent of the game); in fact, Rich revealed a little more about his sessions with Weezy, opening up about their discourse. "We was skateboarding," says Rich, "I got him on my new album. Wayne been always like, supportive for a minute now. It's great to have him on my side, letting me know what not to do, what to do."
He also reveals the reason why he would skip out on signing Lil Uzi Vert, were the rapper to become a free agent. "Maybe I would sign him on my business, but for personal reasons I wouldn't sign him." Check out the full interview below.
