Music Name: Rich Person also known as RP
Reppin: The Bronx, New York (241st Street; the Wakefield section)
Who influenced you to rap: Krs-1, Run, Notorious B.I.G and Jay-Z. I was also influenced by every special moment in Hip-Hop.
Your standout records or moments have been: My standout moment was completing my debut project, New York Fornication. It was a very special moment for me as well as a big accomplishment. I would like to thank Stone Red, 2Keyz, Charlie Rock, Octopus Jones and Ralley for providing the production.
If you can sign to any label, what label it will be and why: Currently I’m waving my flag! I have my own movement called The People Club but I wouldn’t mind signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. They remind me of Motown in a sense because they’re well prepared & does a great job developing their artists. I’m focused on adding something new to the Hip-Hop culture and a label like the Roc Nation would assure the attention of the masses.
What projects are you currently working on: Right now, I’m currently promoting my mixtape, New York Fornication. That’s my baby, my debut! ‘Taking What’s Mine” is the lead song from the project and it’s perfect for what I’m setting out to do. I have so many great records on this project. I’m excited!
Five years from now I will be: One of the new faces of Hip-Hop. So in 5 years, Don Bleek if you’re interviewing me then I made it. Get used to Rich Person & The People Club because you’re going be hearing those names a lot.
