Rich Kidd: Biography

Source: RichKiddBeats.com

Once in a while, a talent comes along who isn’t bound by conventional wisdom. He doesn’t follow the rules. He’s a mad musical genius with the vision of creating a monster. Critically acclaimed producer, rapper, song-writer, director; Rich Kidd is that talent. The Toronto native is everywhere. Covering magazines like NOW & HipHopCanada, winning Stylus & Toronto Independent Music Awards, touring Australia & Canada, producing music for everyone from Drake to Busta Rhymes to Nelly Furtado and releasing one of his country’s farthest reaching mixtape series (We On Some Rich Kidd Shit 1,2,3,4 & 5), Rich Kidd’s making wave after wave.

Rich Kidd emerged in 2009 as a commercially viable producer when the legendary Busta Rhymes used his production for a mixtape cut featuring M.O.P.’s Billy Daze called “Indescribable.” That same year, Juno nominated K-os wrote one of his career’s biggest hits over a Rich Kidd production sampling Phantom Planet’s “California.” “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman” featured Saukrates and Nelly Furtado and the video was nominated for a Best Hip Hop Video at the 2010 MMVAs.

We On Some Rich Kidd Shit Volume 3 dropped in 2010, featuring an introspective song by a pre-Young Money Drake featuring Saukrates entitled “The Search.” By spring, Rich Kidd was on the road touring western Canada with DJ Mensa and would later tour Australia furthering his growing reputation as a fearless, energetic performer. That year he also made his mark opening for The Clipse, Boombox Saints, Sean Price, Canadian Music Week showcase and Manifesto. He was coming into his own and received a nomination for 2010 Stylus Producer of the Year.
While he didn’t take home any hardware that year, he turned the corner as an artist and returned to the Stylus Awards in 2011 with five nominations. Fittingly, he won Artist Mixtape of the Year and rocked the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with a ruckus performance. “That’s how you perform!” a shirtless Rich Kidd yelled to the capacity crowd to end his set.

While he’d made great strides as a producer, MC and songwriter, 2011 also saw Rich Kidd spread his wings with his first directorial project “Trespassing.” A semi-biographical short film chronicling Rich Kidd’s struggle with his community and his art within a harsh urban environment, it was included in the City Life Film Project and debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Bell Lightbox in fall 2010.

The accolades continued to roll in. While he opened for J. Cole, Jay Electronica, KRS One, Big Krit, Cory Gunz and Kendrick Lamar, the Toronto Star named him one of Toronto’s top 5 independent MCs.

“Take It Slow” served as Rich Kidd’s debut solo single as an artist that same fall of 2010. Fans finally got a clear look at the animated character that’d been playing the background for years and the video achieved medium rotation on MuchMusic and high rotation on MuchVibe.
