07 Oct SoulTrain.com Q&A: Rich Cole
Richmond, California-based artist and entrepreneur Rich Cole has been building a steady buzz throughout the Bay Area for several years thanks to his heavy usage of social media. As CEO of The ABiatorz Music Group, he’s released a slew of mixtapes and solo projects to keep his fans anticipating his long awaited debut project The Rich Tape. Making a grand entrance, the album has some heavyweights behind it. Production wise, the DJ Skee-hosted project features sought-after beats from the likes of JakeOne and MyGuyMars. The project also features guest appearances from Too $hort, Tory Lanez and Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, among others. Set for release around February 2015, the project should serve as a grand introduction for someone who’s been rhyming since the tender age of fifteen.
Speaking with SoulTrain.com, Rich Cole details how he grew his buzz locally, linking with DJ Skee and the inspiration for The Rich Tape’s first single “Bullion (54 Gold Bars).”
