We On Some Rich Kidd Sh*t 5

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since Ritchie’s craaaaazyyy WOSRKS4 release party last year. Too many insane artists on stage, the release of his first music video for track ‘Take It Slow’, and of course, Rich Kidd himself, wylin’ out in the crowd and runnin’ down the bar. If there’s anything you need to know about Toronto’s favorite producer/emcee, he puts on one heck of a show.

Tomorrow night marks the release of his 5th mixtape in this series, where he will drop said album, and grace the stage with a line up of surprise guest performers. That’s as much information I’m given, I couldn’t even get a peep out of Ritchie when I saw him a few days ago. I’m excited to see if tomorrow night will live up to all the secrecy and hype, but part of me knows that goes without question.

I’m so so soooo proud of Ritchie and his accomplishments this past year: dropping 4 music videos that have made it on rotation on MuchMusic, being a guest on RapCity like 5 times, winning Artist Mixtape of the Year Stylus award, and opening up for J.Cole, Rah Digga, among many other notable artists. Much more, Rich Kidd is a community orientated type of man. He’s spent the last year working at the LOFT, mixing and recording young emcees from around the way. I don’t even think Ritchie realizes how extraordinary he is. There’s a huge amount of respect synonymous to this guy’s name and that comes from his humility, his drive, his talent, and just his open energy.

“You and me, PROGRESS, from here on in.” He said to me once at the Stylus After party, post-win of his award. “We’ve BEEN progressing, and we’re only going to go higher.” I said to him in response. =) I’m sooooooo excited for what this year will bring for Rich Kidd. Now THAT GUY is someone who shows me and defines for me what it means to LOVEHARD. Hells yeah.
