Rich Homie Quan is undeniably one of the hottest rappers from Atlanta, Georgia with multiple singles in rotation on all urban radio stations and consistent spins in nightclubs throughout the nation. With the newly released single “Flex “Ooh Ooh Ooh” dominating the blogosphere, Rich Homie Quan is giving his loyal fans a taste of what’s to come on his highly anticipated album coming later this year.

In November 2013, Rich Homie Quan delivered his third successful mix tape dubbed "I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In" featuring DJ Drama, Baby, Young Thug and Problem. The New York Times hailed him as "part of Atlanta’s rising generation of rappers—think Future, Young Thug, Young Scooter—who deliver lines with melody and heart, like singers on the verge of a breakdown.” The Hip-Hop fan favorite kicked off 2014 with the mega single “My Hitta” which he was featured on with YG and Jeezy that went Platinum in January of that year. He was chosen to be on the cover of XXL Magazine’s highly acclaimed 2014 XXL Freshman Class issue, won Best Collaboration for “My Hitta” at the 2014 BET Awards and was also nominated in the Best New Artist category. Later that year, Rich Homie Quan was nominated for Rookie of the Year and Best Mixtape at the BET Hip Hop Awards in his hometown. Showing no signs of slowing down, the rap star traveled across the country as a star performer on Wiz Khalifa’s Under the Influence Tour, winning thousands of new fans along the way.
