Rich Homie Quan has the streets of Atlanta on lock. The 23-year-old is an Atlanta native and grew up on the Eastside. He went to McNair High School and was “Mr. Baseball” in 9th grade. But judging from his hardcore street lyrics you would never know he graduated from McNair with a 3.2 gpa.
I was surprised too. So I asked him how he got into the music industry:
“I’ve been writing since I was 9 years old. But I wasn’t serious about it. But when I got out of jail in 2011 I decided to go in.”
And that’s just what he did. In the beginning of 2012 he dropped his first mixtape “I Go In On Every Song” and created a buzz for himself. He realized he needed to change his course because “burglary” and other side hustles weren’t working in his best interest.
Now he has three big songs in the streets, “Better Watch What You Saying”, “Differences”, and “Some Type Of Way” from his mixtape Still Goin In! He’s doing his thing and you can catch him this Saturday at the 10th Annual Car and Bike Show.
Get there early because all of Atlanta is coming out to see him. The phones were ringing off the hook. Even his mom and nephew called it.
