Rich Homie Quan Releases “Back To The Basics” Mixtape

10Music, NewsTags: ,
The young Atlanta-based rapper who sold millions of singles as an independent artist – returns with the new mixtape, Back To The Basics. Released today by Motown Records, the collection also includes the “Back To The Basics” movie, which premiered on Noisey and can be seen HERE. Quan’s engaging narration links together the official videos for “Da Streetz,” “Heart Cold” and four other tracks from Back To The Basics.
He chose the mixtape’s title as a nod to the material that helped him become one of the game’s most popular artists. “I just want to get back to my old self, dropping the music I know I’m capable of dropping for my fans,” Rich Homie Quan explains. “I want to get back to where everyone can feel where I’m coming from.”
“Replay,” the high energy first single from Back To The Basics, features him shouting out Mannie Fresh and dropping clever, well thought-out lyrics about the importance of money and being a step ahead of his competition. View the official “Replay” video HERE.
“I grew up with nothing, so every dollar had value,” he explains. “I don’t want to be broke. Never again. That’s why I try to put those things in my songs because when I hear them and I’m saying, ‘Boy, you can’t go broke,’ I’ve got to live up to that. In my songs, I try to make goals for myself and live up to them.”
“Replay” can be heard in a series of short video spots that Quan shot for athletic retailer The Finish Line, Inc.and adidas in conjunction with an exclusive Tubular Shadow colorway release.
The piano-accented “Heart Cold” finds Quan imploring people to take action rather than just talk about what they’re going to do. On “Da Streetz,” as XXL notes, he “gets right to the bottom of how he became such a street-oriented guy. Quan uses repetition and straightforward, but meaningful lyrics to make his point.”Hot New Hip Hop praised him for “showing off his musical versatility with some clever rhyme schemes and melodies” and said, “if this string of new music is any indication, 2017 is poised to be a big year for him.”
Quan made his debut in 2012 with the release of his I Go In On Every Song project. He exploded the following year with the release of the mixtape Still Going In Reloaded, his Gold-certified “Type Of Way” single and an appearance on YG’s triple Platinum “My Hitta” track. His 2015 single, “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh),” has been certified double Platinum and the accompanying video has more than 100 million YouTube views. Quan is currently at work on his full-length debut album, which Motown Records will release this summer.

Rich Homie Quan’s Unveils “Da Streetz” Music Video

10Music, News, VideoTags: , ,
Rich Homie Quan gets autobiographical on his new Zaytoven-produced banger, “Da Streetz.” While the video depicts his life in and out of prison, the Atlanta rapper uses the song to rhyme about his annual lessons.
“I ain’t know nothing ’bout no drank until the age of 13,” he sings on the hook. “I ain’t know nothing ’bout no money ’til the age of 14 / I ain’t know nothing ’bout no condom ’til the age of 15 / And I ain’t never go to class as a teen / I ain’t dumb, but I ain’t know nothin’ but the streets.”
The Marc Diamond-directed visual also finds Quan sitting on steps, reflecting on his coming of age. “17 was the worst,” he rhymes. “Felt like I ain’t had no purpose / At 18, was workin’ / At 18, was lurkin’ / At 18, I graduated / A lotta lames in my class, I know they mad I made it.”
Somber in a cell, wearing an orange jumpsuit, Rich Homie explains how he managed to turn his life around before receiving some major news. “Age 21, I spent locked up,” he raps. “22, came home, told myself, ‘No more gettin’ back locked up’ / Came home focused / New mind frame, knew nothing could stop us / By 23, my baby momma, she was knocked up.”
RHQ continues, explaining his success at 24 and 25, and details the success of YG’s “My Ni**a.” “I received me a plaque,” he brags of his featured appearance, before boasting about the millions he earned at 25. But despite this success, the video takes a tragic turn with gun shots during a home invasion robbery. Then, Quan is shown back in Fulton County, locked behind bars.

Rich Homie Quan Teams Up With Finish Line and adidas For Exclusive Sneaker Release

10NewsTags: , ,

Athletic retailer Finish Line has teamed up with Rich Homie Quan and adidas for an exclusive Tubular Shadow colorway release.

“We’re in the middle of an exciting time in retail where style, music and influencers all connect with one another,” said Paul Diehl senior director of content, social and consumer trends at Finish Line. “Each influences the other and we’ve harnessed that concept with our partnership and how it resonates with our customers and their interests.”

As part of the partnership, Quan sports the all-white Tubular Shadows in photos featured on the retailer’s social accounts and in-store displays. On the retailer’s YouTube channel, Quan stars in short video spots with his single “Replay” playing in the background. The sneakers include a superlight and breathable knit upper with textured accents, rope laces and a low-cut design that promotes both style and comfort.

“What I wear inspires me when I get into the studio – it decides what type of lyrics I’m going to spit each day,” said Quan. “Putting together a fresh outfit with fresh shoes is as good as putting together a fresh track. My style is about more than just looking good; it’s about channeling how I feel and what I create.” – Rich Homie Quan

When it comes to style, Quan has been doing his thing for years. Fashion is nothing new to Quan, he won best dressed in high school and he keeps building his look. Like his unique lyrical style, his fashion sense is just as unique and each outfit will always be something special. One of his favorite shoes is the classic adidas Originals Stan Smith, and he always has a fresh pair in rotation. When he throws his outfit together each day it inspires him in ways that go beyond just looking good. It can influence how he feels when he steps in the booth. The process of creating a dope look is similar to creating a great track for Quan. Listening for drops and snares on the beat over a track conveys the same feeling of putting together the perfect outfit. Starting with the kicks is important, because it will set his mood and tone. Whether he’s losing himself in the booth or stepping out in the city, the kicks are what motivate Quan.

Rich Homie Quan is on a mission to make March his month as his next album is done and set to be released soon. He wants his fans to know that he gave his everything on this album and he’s got his foot on the neck of the game as he is set to make 2017 his year. Like he’s been saying, it’s #BackToTheBasics for Quan and his team this year. He will always be fresh on the scene with his own creative look that could start with a pair of adidas Tubular Shadows or Stan Smiths. He’s hungry for greatness and has the Tony Montana mindset that the world is his. His work ethic of going so hard with everything he does is driven by his urge to make sure his family and friends are living just as good as he will. Quan lives the Rich Homie Lifestyle with a fresh pair of Tubulars on his feet and the urge to get his creative story out to the people.

You can purchase the exclusive adidas Tubular Shadow colorway via Finish Line.
