Living rap legend Richie Rich makes his highly anticipated comeback to the rap game official with the release of his new video “Mike Vic.” The gritty, no holds-barred street anthem is classic Richie Rich – one of the founding fathers of West Coast Hip-Hop. His new visual showcases his Oakland hometown in an ode to the Bay Area streets. After taking a break from the rap scene for several years, the Hip-Hop icon is back, giving his loyal fans a preview of what’s to expect on his brand new upcoming album “Fed Case.”
Best known for his iconic verse on The Luniz’ remix of the multi-platinum single “I Got 5 On It,” guest appearances on Tupac‘s two biggest albums “Me Against The World” and “All Eyez On Me,” and along with his “Town Bidness” Vol. 1 & 2 albums, Richie Rich’s documented talent continues to keep him relevant in today’s ever-evolving music industry.
“I’m excited because it’s been a minute, but right now is a good time,” Richie Rich says. “The Bay Area is getting a really good look right now with artists like Too $hort and E-40 still successful and newcomers Iamsu!, Sage the Gemini and others. I’m just ready to get back out there.”
