Atlanta hip hop star Rich Homie Quan releases his long-anticipated debut album Rich as in Spirit, featuring American rapper Rick Ross today, via Motown records.
The album, which is the precocious songwriter’s first full-length record, comes over a year after the star first publically announced the album in conjunction with Motown.
When asked where the name of the album came from, Rich Homie Quan said, “I ended up going to jail… I had a [cellmate] by the name of Chicken. He was like, ‘I see your name is Rich Homie. What [does] it stand for?’ I didn’t have a meaning, but the first thing he said was, ‘Rich as in spirit.’ It hit my spirit. I felt it, opposed to heard it. I didn’t hear it. I felt it… It stuck with me. I had to name my first album that.”
With several multiplatinum singles under his belt, Rich Homie Quan found international success and major critical acclaim over the last six years with hits Type of Way back in 2013 and Lifestyle (2014) as part of super group Rich Gang with Young Thug and Birdman.
After a quiet and uncertain two years, the release of the 19-track record has pushed Rich Homie Quan once again to the forefront of the conversation.
