Background

Richards dropped out of his studies of mechanical engineering at Tuskegee University in order to concentrate on music.[2] With a few demo releases, he was noticed by producer Polow da Don (who had already produced numbers for Ludacris, Jamie Foxx and Fergie). Rich Boy then signed a contract with Zone 4 through Interscope Records and started to work on his debut album. In the meantime, he made guest appearances on one of Ludacris' Disturbing tha Peace compilations and on a few mix tapes, such as Comeback Season by Canadian rapper Drake and Da Bottom, Vol. 5 by DJ Ideal and Jermaine Dupri. On March 13, 2007, Rich Boy released his self-titled debut album and with the success of his hit singles "Throw Some D's," "Boy Looka Here," "Good Things," and "Let's Get This Paper," the album went on to be certified Gold by the RIAA.[3]

His second album was thought to be entitled 5 Million, but Rich Boy said in an interview that the first single will be released in the summer and the title will be "Buried Alive". He recently released a single "Top of the World", part of the More Than A Game soundtrack album. He has been releasing successful mixtapes such as Bigger Than The Mayor, Paccman, and Kool-Aid, Kush and Convertibles and has made several appearances on other artists' work. Rich Boy's second album is slated for a 2010 release. The first Official single is expected to be Sho Look Good produced by Jim Jonsin.
