In April 2012 Rich Quick released “I’m With The DJ” Hosted by DJ NoPhrillz and Benja Styles. The first 500 physical copies of the mixtape included 1 of 5 limited edition hand drawn Hip Hop themed Art Cards. Rich included the Art Cards as a testament to Hip Hop’s influence on art and pop culture. During Rich‘s tour promoting “I’m With The DJ” Rich performed with notable New Jersey producer Mr. Green. After the show he was approached by Jeff Davis aka Stress the White Boy. Stress and Chuck Treece, a powerhouse production duo referred to as STREECE™, began working with Rich on an EP titled “Sad Songz” from Ben Frank Recordings.
The work on “Sad Songz” captured the attention of multi-Grammy award winning artist, Tim “Timebomb” Armstrong of Rancid and Transplants fame. Armstrong, a longtime friend of Stress, collaborated on a track with STREECE™ and Rich Quick. The track entitled “Stay True” became part of the Tim Timebomb and Friends project and quickly became a fan favorite. Other notable collaborations are Jakk Frost, Vinnie Paz, Reef the Lost Cauze, and Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples)
Rich was then featured in Philadelphia Weekly calling him “Philly hip-hop’s rising star”. After features on HipHopDx.com, RespectMag.com, AllHipHop.com and numerous international websites, “Sad Songz” release opened to positive and exciting reviews. Rich Quick is quickly becoming one of the East Coast’s most diverse and authentic emcees.
