It’s been a long five years since the release of his debut album but Mobile, Alabama rapper Rich Boy is back with not only new material but a new recording home. Rich Boy announced yesterday that he has signed with eOne Music and will be releasing his long awaited sophomore album later this year.
“My upcoming album is a real natural. No records were forced, and I was just recording and having fun, just catching the moment,” Rich Boy told RapMusic via a press release.
“We are proud and excited to officially be a part of the eOne family,” added Rich Boy’s manager, Delaney McGill. “Rich Boy is a talented and creative visionary who despite his surroundings in Mobile AL was able rise above the negativity to have a platinum hit record. With continual drive determination and management direction Rich boy’s new music will be consistent with what all his fans have been waiting for.”
Prior to the release of his currently untitled sophomore effort, Rich Boy will release a mix-tape on June 21 titled First Day of Summer. “This mix-tape represents summertime heat,” Rich Boy said. Rich Boy’s first album, which was self titled, rocked the charts in 2007 with bangers like “Throw Some D’s” and “Boy Looka Here”. The album featured appearances from David Banner, Attitude, Polow da Don, Lil’ Jon, Keri Hilson, Big Boi, Pastor Troy, and John Legend.
