Famous Dex

Famous Dex grew up in Chicago and before his rap career he would be in the background of his friends’ music videos dancing and hyping them up. In January 2011 Dex was watching tv when two men showed up  at his door for him. When he opened the door he was jumped, stabbed six times then left for dead. He was in a coma for four days and stayed in the hospital for eight months until he was fully recovered. After that he decided to focus on music and started rapping under the name Black Migo Dex. He first released remixes to other rappers’ songs; he released his first single “Bottle after Bottle” in 2014. A short while after that he changed his name to Famous Dex. He released a few mixtapes but with his songs “Drip from my Walk” and “2 times” ,he started to blow up. His high energy is something not a lot of rappers can match and personally I think that’s why his music is so good.

    In late 2016 a video of Famous Dex hitting his girlfriend surfaced on the internet. He instantly was being blasted over social media and his deal with shoe company Puma was terminated. He said this in a breakfast club interview when asked to further address the situation "What I learned from that, I learned a lot," Dex said. "Not just me putting my hands on a female, I just, me losing my mom, me being new to this music stuff, it was a lot of pressure on me, you know? So I just kinda blanked out right there. God is good. I'm glad everything kinda, you know, it went a different way. It didn't go, like, far. I didn't go to jail for it. She didn't get hurt or nothing. She had my king, she had my son, and I just wanna be forgetting about it." He is very willing to talk about the situation and wants to make it clear that what he did was not right, and he will never make a mistake like that again. Since then he has focused on music and being a positive role model to his fans so they don’t make the same mistakes that he did. This year he released his first studio album Dex Meets Dexter that charted at #12 on billboard. Also he has a pitch for the upcoming XXLFreshman list 0f 2018.

Jay Critch

    Jay Critch is a rapper from Brooklyn who was the third rapper signed to Rich Forever. He started making music and posting songs on soundcloud in 2016. Just a year later his song “Did it Again” featuring Rich the Kid went viral with over a million views. In late December Rich the Kid announced he had signed Jay Critch to Rich Forever. Since then he has been releasing more music like singles “Robinhood” and “Sweepstakes.” He now has over half a million followers on instagram and multiple hit songs.

I think rich forever is one of the most talented groups in the rap scene right now and they will continue to release hits and someday be known as one of the best labels out there.
