Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan is focused on building his rap career and recently explained why his close association to Cash Money Records CEO Birdman doesn’t mean an automatic YMCMB deal. #flyaway
According to Quan, Birdman has provided his multi-decade advice and helped steer him in the right direction.
“I’m helping Birdman with the Rich Gang project,” said Rich Home Quan. Of his relationship with the Cash Money mogul he added, “Birdman is more like a big brother I never had. He gives me a lot of creative advice. A lot of wisdom. I just kick it with him every day, we just a family.” (XXL Mag)
Rich Homie also admitted he has no interest in rushing a major record label deal.
“I’m just still waiting on the right situation. I want something that’s gonna be long term opposed to something that’s sort of like a fling. But yes, I do want to sign a label deal.” Independent or not, Rich Homie is dropping his debut LP this year. “I will be dropping my album before the year is out,” he told XXL. (XXL Mag)
Outside of the music biz, Quan recently took responsibility for attacking a concertgoer in Wisconsin.
“To set the record nobody save me.I slapped that nigga by myself.I do salute Chiraq for having my bak.But ain Neva been a fucknigga,” Quan tweeted July 5. (Rich Homie Quan’s Twitter)
Footage of Rich Homie’s incident from an Independence Day show surfaced last Saturday (July 5).
The BET Awards best new artist winner Rich Homie Quan might be up for best live molly wop next year — after Quan laid a pimp slap on a fan in Wisconsin. The 24-year old rapper played a gig at 3 Monkeys in Racine Friday night — and during the set a fan attempted to pull himself onstage using RHQ’s arm … according to Rich. Big mistake. Quan scolded the guy from the stage … and moments later slapped him in the head. For now, cops say no one’s filed a complaint, but the message is clear: Homie don’t play that. (TMZ)
