Rich Boy review

Rich Boy’s dream has come true

Let us greet another hot guy from southern state Alabama, Maurice Richards, whom most of us are going to remember as Rich Boy. This new name is going to occupy with certainty an honorable place on the rap scene and not only due to the young artist’s evident talent but to a great extent due to his personal qualities. Having grown up in the family of a liquor store owner, Rich Boy has quite early seen squalid people and has spent time among drug dealers practically worshiping them in the beginning. Luckily his moher has saved the young man from troubles for which he is always thankful to her. This experience has got him to trying his hand at rapping. Realizing how difficvult it is to get to the radio airs, Maurice has tried to reach his goal by all means and finally met producer Polow Da Don who appreciated his recordings and helped him realize his dream. Young rapper began the year releasing his eponymous debut album. Due to the close cooperation with numerous producers Rich Boy has quickly reached the top of the charts not mentioning guest appearances of the most prominent hip-hop stars of today, from Nelly to Lil’ Jon, from The Game to Andre 3000.

Rich Boy pays a tribute to producers

It is clear that Rich Boy is only at the beginning of his career and as it often happens to young artists he recieves a great support from producers, especially from Polow Da Don. Paying a tribute to everybody without whom the album would not have been a success Rich Boy mentions producers in each track title. What he offers us to do is to estimate his modesty and ability to be greatful. Yet the only track Rich Boy has produced himself, The Madness, is put at the beginning of the record. Perhaps it is not the best song on the album but one cannot but approve of the rapper’s boldness and self-assurance. Track Role Models performed with David Banner and Attitude and produced by Polow Da Don is a remarkable for witty lyrics and composition Boy Looka Here, again produced by Polow Da Don, is going to be the second single off the album. Its main advantage is a splendid beat as well as on the first single Throw Some D’s performed with Polow Da Don and produced by Butta and Polow Da Don, the song that has been a real hit for months already. Cutty’s cameo on What It Do produced by Lil’ Jon refines this quality classic rap composition, while an ode to girls, Good Things performed with Polow Da Don and Keri demonstrates how the artist behaves with the opposite sex. The longest track on the record is Let’s Get This Paper produced by Polow Da Don, it lasts odd nine minutes and is by no means boring. A popular remix of Throw Some D’s featuring Andre 3000, Jim Jones, Nelly, Murphy Lee & The Game and produced by Lil’ Jon closes the record and leaves an unforgettable impression.

The southern rap school gathers momentum

Despite his age young enough, he was born in 1983, Rich Boy really knows the laws of life and show business in particular. What he has grasped first of all is that the needful contacts are always the basis of everything. The notorious aggressive competition in rap industry never stopped him and he has managed to gain over to a cause of influential producers who have ultimately provided the success of the debut record. Of course Rich Boy is neither the first nor the last one for there are already such examples as Young Buck and Yung Joc and many others, who have also been backed up by powerful music makers. Nevertheless this is the way the things are done and only the most ambitious and the boldest achieve their aim. The experienced provide the beginning with help and assistance passing the best traditions from generation to generation. With every new talent the southern rap school gathers momentum and there is nothing to surprise in the fact that the young artist’s success has been so attentively checked. Yet it is just a springboard and further way to the top fully depends on Rich Boy’s own skills.
