About Rich The Kid
Rich the Kid is the stage name of Dimitri Leslie Roger. He is an American entrepreneur, rapper, record producer, singer, and songwriter that’s currently signed to the label Republic Records, which boosted his popularity. He began his music career in the early 2010s and as of now has released three very triumphant studio albums as well as numerous collaborative and solo mixtapes.
How Did Rich The Kid Get So Rich?
The rapper became a millionaire when he signed with Republic Records. Prior to that, he continued to release mostly mixtapes and singles. In the mid-2010s, he released multiple collaborations with artists such as Gucci Mane, Young Thug, French Montana, Yo Gotti, Kodak Black, and Jeremiah. Starting in 2016, he began releasing the mixtapes “Rich Forever” in collaboration with various artists from Rich Forever Music earning him more than $20.000. “Rich Forever Music” is also the name of his record label founded in March 2016 with Warner and Universal Music Group.
After releasing several chart-topping hits such as “Plug Walk”, “New Freezer” (with Kendrick Lamar), and “Talk To Me (with Tory Lanez), he secured a recording deal with Republic Records worth more than $500.000. In March 2018, he released his debut studio album titled “The World Is Yours”, which was met with positive reviews. From the 600,000 plus album-equivalent units in its first year, it earned the rapper an additional $100.000. Besides entering many music charts in Europe and North America, it also received gold and platinum certifications in Canada and the United States.
Why is he so famous?
Rich the Kid became famous when he released his debut studio album. He was born on July 13, 1992, in Queens, New York. Dimitri grew up speaking Haitian Creole and is of Haitian descent. When he was 13, after his parents divorced, he moved with his mother to Woodstock, Georgia, one of the suburbs close to Atlanta. Growing up, he was listening up to 50 Cent, 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Nas whom he claims are his biggest inspirations. He then listened to Young Jeezy and T.I.
In the early 2000s, he created his very first rap name – “Black Boy Da Kid”, which was later changed to “Rich the Kid”. He attended the Elmont Memorial Junior-Senior High School from which he earned his degree in 2011. Shortly after, he began creating music with his first project being the mixtape “Been About the Benjamins”, released in 2013. Throughout the early and mid-2010s, he began working with Migos for the collaborative mixtapes “Streets On Lock”.
What Makes Him So Successful?
Consistently producing and releasing music as both a solo act and in collaborations is what makes the hip hop artist so successful. Exactly one year after the release of his first album, Rich released his second. The sophomore album is called “The World Is Yours 2” and it was just as triumphant as his first, selling more than one million copies. Most recently, in March 2020, he released his third studio album titled “Boss Man”. The album was met with generally mixed reviews, even though it included popular songs with the likes of Lil Baby, Future, Da Baby, Nicki Minaj, and Post Malone.
Another reason why Rich the Kid is so triumphant is his well-known record label. Since its establishment in March 2016, Rich Forever Music has helped many rising stars gain national popularity such as Famous Dei, Jay Critch, Ari, Young Bino, 83 Babies, and Tropico. The label has signed joint contracts and deals with its parent companies Warner and Universal Music Group. It has been distributed by the labels 300 Entertainment, Atlantic Records, Interscope, and EMPIRE.
Rich the Kid is known as the hardest working hip hop artist in Atlanta. The rising star began his career less than a decade ago and has quickly transitioned into one of the favorite rappers and record producers. As of now, from his winning record label, association with other labels, and acclaimed studio albums, he has gathered more than $10 million.
Apart from music, Rich the Kid is also a famous entrepreneur that has set up several businesses that have been highlighted by the prominent Forbes magazine. Besides Forbes, the hip hop artist has graced the covers of magazines such as XXL, Respect, and Office,
