Born and raised in Woodbury New Jersey, in his high school years, Rich Quick was the co-founder of a hip-hop group appropriately named “Rag Tag” because of their diverse and disorderly composition.
In April 2012 Rich released, I'm With The DJ, and while touring for the project and after a show, Rich was approached by Jeff Davis aka Stress the White Boy. Stress and Chuck Treece, a powerhouse production duo referred to as STREECE (who have previously produced for Lil Wayne, The Roots, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, Tyga, Good Charlotte, Sting & Billy Joel among many others) and after hitting it off they dropped the Sad Songz EP.
The work on Sad Songz captured the attention of multi-Grammy award winning artist, Tim "Timebomb" Armstrong of Rancid & Transplants fame. Armstrong, a longtime friend of Stress, collaborated on a track with STREECE and Rich. The track entitled "Stay True" became part of the Tim Timebomb and Friends project and quickly became a fan favorite.
The diversity and authenticity of Rich Quick's Sad Songz EP has caught the attention of Allhiphop.com, UnsungHipHop.Com, Magnet Magazine, MSN.com, Urb.com, Respect-mag.com, Hiphopdx.com & Philadelphia Weekly and with his release of "Travelin' Man,” from his fourth EP featuring 1/2 of Dilated Peoples & Reef The Lost Cauze and remixed by STREEZE. Other notable collaborators on Sad Songz include Jakk Frost & Vinnie Paz.
