Born and raised in Woodbury New Jersey, in his high school years, Rich Quick was the co-founder of a hip-hop group appropriately named “Rag Tag” because of their diverse and disorderly composition.
In April 2012 Rich released, I’m With The DJ, and while touring for the project and after a show, Rich was approached by Jeff Davis aka Stress the White Boy. Stress and Chuck Treece, a powerhouse production duo referred to as STREECE (who have previously produced for Lil Wayne, The Roots, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, Tyga, Good Charlotte, Sting & Billy Joel among many others) and after hitting it off they began working with Rich on material that would eventually turn into his forthcoming Sad Songz EP which will be released on 8-20-2013.
The work on Sad Songz captured the attention of multi-Grammy award winning artist, Tim “Timebomb” Armstrong of Rancid & Transplants fame. Armstrong, a longtime friend of Stress, collaborated on a track with STREECE and Rich. The track entitled “Stay True” became part of the Tim Timebomb and Friends project and quickly became a fan favorite.
The diversity and authenticity of Rich Quick’s Sad Songz EP (which features collaborations with Rakka Iriscience, Vinnie Paz, Jakk Frost, Reef The Lost Cauze) has already caught the attention of Allhiphop.com, Magnet Magazine, MSN.com, Urb.com, Respect-mag.com, Hiphopdx.com & Philadelphia Weekly among many others.
