I still listen to every new Rich Boy release with all my fingers and toes crossed that he’ll one day recapture whatever mojo was flowing through his vocal cords in ’08-’11 and put out some truly great music again. He and Supa Villain could have made an Alabama Yen Lo album 5 years ago if they wanted to, but instead we just got a handful of songs, most of them too short, before he started the middling string of releases from Break the Pot to the present that aren’t exactly bad but mostly sound like he’s trying to be anybody but himself.
Now it looks like even he might have given up on that dream – here’s a video he released last weekend from a mixtape that he originally put out 8 years ago. He had no idea how prophetic that song title would be.
