There’s a segment of Hip-Hop where lyricism still reigns supreme. Whether you’re into the double time styles like Jaz-O and Twista, or you follow artists like Aesop Rock, the ability for an artist to tell a unique story is an integral yet often undermined part of the art form. After recently releasing “No1,” the Jersey based wordsmith, Rich Quick, expands upon his catalog as he continues his climb towards success with, “On My Shoulderz”. The second single from, ‘The Everywhere Man’ finds Quick dropping bars and hooks over STANKFOOT’s keys and dirty snares. Lyrically, he can’t be touched; Quick has created his own sense of style that is different enough for others to take notice. Simply put, his rhymes make rapping seem effortless. Quick can navigate his way through any style of production like a slalom course. Rich also continues to showcase his various talents as he lends his artistic expression to create the hand painted cover art. Keep this one on repeat until Quick drops his forthcoming FreEP, ‘The Everywhere Man,’ which is set to drop this Spring through Exponent Entertainment.

Regardless of how Hip-Hop has evolved over the years there will always be a few constants. Despite all of the industries’ smoke and mirrors – from rented cars, ghostwritten hits, and inflated YouTube views – there’s simply no faking the funk for calling yourself a true emcee and not having skills on the mic.
One thing that New Jersey’s Rich Quick doesn’t have to worry about is being called out for his mic skills or his credentials. Some of his earliest experiences with music have been teaching himself piano while picking apart the sounds of Coolio’s Gangster’s Paradise when he was 7. Quick certainly hasn’t slept since. Since the release of his debut project, Get Rich Quick, the Jersey upstart has been steadily mastering the tricks of the DIY trade and has built a successful team in his corner. Now older and more refined, Quick has taken his artistry to new heights with the release of “No1″ (Pronounced “No One”), the debut single off his forthcoming project, The Everywhere Man, with the UK’s own, Tricksta. “No1″ demonstrates Quick’s versatility and storytelling abilities over STANKFOOT’s sunken and head nodding production, which borrows from Ahmad Jamal’s “The World is a Ghetto.” To round out Quick’s artistic expertise, the New Jeruz virtuoso is also the creator for the single’s artwork. The Everywhere Man is set to drop this Spring through Exponent Entertainment. For more information visit RichMFNQuick.com

Nothing says ‘happy holidays’ like ordering someone a round of their favorite brew. While Rich Quick and Rediculus don’t quite leave you with empty carbs under your tree this week, they do manage to give you the next best thing: some dope new music. On “Buy Me A Beer,” New Jersey’s Rich Quick spits about liquid confidence with a braggadocious charm. Chicago’s Rediculus sonically matches his collaborator’s charisma with an acoustic-guitar sampling instrumental that should go down just as smooth in a pair headphones as it will in a pint glass. “Buy Me A Beer” is a loosie for the fans, but stay tuned as the two collaborators release new music in 2015.
