Richard "Rich Monii" Hatcher was born on December 13, 1992 in Houston, Texas as Richard Charles Bailey, Jr. He was adopted at birth along with his two brothers James and Steven and that's when his last name was converted to Hatcher. He was deeply influenced at age 16 by the death of his older brother Marcus who died at 29 on October 28, 2009. His music became somewhat more influential. It was good to start off with when he began rapping at age 11. His music is now truely amazing and should be heard and recognized by people around the world. Please help support this artist as much as possible. Thank you all!
Why this name?
One of my mixtapes was titled "Rich Get Money" and I decided to take out "Get," which left Rich Money. I wanted the name to be more original, so I changed the "ey" to "ii" and it was that simple.
Do you play live?
I have, but my most memorable show was my first one. It was at the house of a friend of mine. I loved the bright lights and flashing lights the most.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think, honestly, the internet helps to further the support and promotion of the music industry. Most discoveries of hot, new music are found either by radio, or virally.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course, I am currently being talked to by someone important, but I also want to keep my opportunities open. I want to get signed as an artist, not a producer.
Southern Hip Hop Artist Rich Monii was born as Richard Charles Bailey, in Houston, Texas. He was adopted at age four, which was when his last name changed to Hatcher. He was writing lyrics at age ten. As time passed, he became more interested in music. He created his first instrumental at age thirteen, using Acoustica Beatcraft. By age fifteen, he was using Fruity Loops Studio. At age fourteen, he recorded his first single on his father's desktop computer, without him knowing. After getting kicked off the computer for recording without his permission and for using provocative language, he decided to try to get his own computer. It took a couple months for him to find one because he didn't have a job, which meant he couldn't afford a good computer. His first computer was an old IBM. He couldn't afford a microphone, but he was so determined to work on music that he plugged a set of earphones into the microphone insert to record music. He worked on music from four o' clock(when he got home from school), to at least four o' clock a.m. On October 28, 2009, a tragic event occurred. Rich Monii's oldest brother, Marcus Duane Hatcher, who liked singing and playing piano, passed away in an unexpected car accident. At that time, Rich Monii's music became more influenced, yet influential. He met a woman named Rosa Garcia on September 24, 2011, who is now his fiance, and mother of his beautiful daughter. He was contacted in April 2012 by QuestFax, manager of Crunchy Black (member of Three 6 Mafia), with a production deal, though no contract had been signed. He is still searching and deciding though. On December 6, 2012; 6 days before his daughter, Aaliyah Marie Hatcher, was born, his dearly beloved mother died of breast cancer . His 20th birthday was spent at his mother's funeral. He doesn't know who to blame for all the excessive pain, so he vents his pain by creating music for the world to hear.
Drake, Lil' Wayne, Gucci Mane, Migos, Young Thug, Peewee Longway, and most of H-Town's finest. They are so talented at what they do and I look forward to meeting and working with and working with all of them, an even more. Also, MMG (Maybach Music Group). My late, older brother, Marcus. My fiance, Rosa.
Right now, Pensacola, Florida. I love the beach and anticipate my next vacation.
I would really appreciate any help, support, and promotion given. I also want to thank all of my fans. They are the dearest.
