Rich Kidd has been getting a lot of attention as of late from the likes of XXL, MTV Hive, Vibe, Complex and more for his last project, In My Opinion. Despite the recent looks, the Toronto-based emcee and producer has been putting in work in Toronto and beyond. From working with fellow artists in the city such as Shad, Drake, Kardinal Official, Maestro Fresh West to getting credits on joints from Busta Rhymes, Meth’ & Red’, Raekwon, DMX, Talib Kweli and more all while popping up at pretty much every rap show in the city.
Now, Rich Kidd brings you his latest work for free of charge. A beat tape he crafted in the summer of 2007 while he was struggling and crashing at his cousin’s place in Toronto most notorious neighbourhood, Jane & Finch. With Marvin Gaye as his inspiration for this tape, listen as Rich’s beats play while asking yourself the same question a Soundcloud comment asked “how does this slap so hard yet remain so smooth”?
