A Jersey-Bred true-school lyrical emcee on the rise in the Philly Hip-Hop Scene, bridging the gap between Backpack and Street Rap one bar at a time.
Learning to play piano by ear, mimicking riffs and bass lines he heard on the radio and television; this was the beginning of Rich Quick's music career. At the age of 7 he obtained the single of Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise. The CD had another track on it, the instrumental interpretation sampling Stevie Wonder's Pastime Paradise from Songs In The Key Of Life Vol. 1. Quick spent hours penning rhymes to the instrumental. Now at the age of 24, writing and rhyming have become the life of this lyrical genius. Born and raised in Woodbury, NJ, Quick spent years writing elementary raps as a youth. In middle-school, Quick met two other young rap artists named Anthony "Loc" McCoy and Maurice "Moe Psalms" Junius, then known as Moe Cheeks. They set out to develop a super-group of vicious emcee's which would prove to be unstoppable in the local Hip-Hop scene. The group, known as Rag Tag, due to it's diverse and disorderly composition, gradually grew to six members; Loc, Moesama, J-Wev, Patch, Shad Dook and of course, Rich Quick. Composed of solo-artists, the group began releasing mixtapes in 2002. Their slew of steady releases kept Rag Tag's name in the mouths of the young Hip-Hoppers within the city. In 2002 Rich Quick released hiz first solo project, Get Rich Quick, +hiz follow up LP "The Movement" in 2004. Rag Tag obtained their own studio in late 2006. It was set up in Rich Quick's house, a gritty row-home where the parties never stopped and music was the main focus. The studio was dubbed "The Krillage". By 2007 the streets were flooded with Rag Tag releases from Moesama, Patch, Loc and Rich Quick. Constant collaborations with local artists attributed to Rag Tag's promotional success. During a brief period with local Blakout Records, Rag Tag suffered some set backs as a group. But Rich Quick arose from the rubble. He immediately linked back up with Ccelli and Jodie (former Blakout associates) and joined the roster of Exponent Entertainment, a Philadelphia based Hip-Hop management company. Quick now shares the deck with J. Griff, DJ NoPhrillz and Benja styles as well as many other up and coming local talent. Expect to see much more from Rich Quick. He is currently winning over Hip-Hop blog-sites and fans all across the world with his sincere style, all the while finishing up his latest and biggest mixtape project, I'm With The DJ hosted by DJ NoPhrillz and Benja styles. Look out for collaborations with Reed Dollaz, Sound Barrier Experience, E. Ness, and more. It has been a long journey for Rich Quick, but it has only just begun. Stay tuned.
