Born and raised in Woodbury New Jersey, in his high school years, Rich Quick was the co-founder of a hip-hop group appropriately named “Rag Tag” because of their diverse and disorderly composition.
In April 2012 Rich released, I'm With The DJ, and while touring for the project and after a show, Rich was approached by Jeff Davis aka Stress the White Boy. Stress and Chuck Treece, a powerhouse production duo referred to as STREECE (who have previously produced for Lil Wayne, The Roots, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, Tyga, Good Charlotte, Sting & Billy Joel among many others) and after hitting it off they began working with Rich on material that would eventually turn into his forthcoming Sad Songz EP which will be released on 8-20-2013.
The work on Sad Songz captured the attention of multi-Grammy award winning artist, Tim "Timebomb" Armstrong of Rancid & Transplants fame. Armstrong, a longtime friend of Stress, collaborated on a track with STREECE and Rich. The track entitled "Stay True" became part of the Tim Timebomb and Friends project and quickly became a fan favorite.
With his release date right around the corner, today he releases a bonus cut, "Travelin' Man,” from his forthcoming EP featuring 1/2 of Dilated Peoples & Reef The Lost Cauze and remixed by STREEZE. Other notable collaborators on Sad Songz include Jakk Frost & Vinnie Paz.

Tanya Morgan Drops New Joint "Pick It Up" Prod. by 6th Sense

After the release of the first single "For Real" earlier this year, Brooklyn based hip-hop duo Tanya Morgan are readying their third LP, Rubber Souls, produced by New York producer 6th Sense (B.o.B., Outasight, Talib Kweli, Mickey Factz, Homeboy Sandman, The Lonely Island, etc.). To be released on September 24th on ImprintOne80, Rubber Souls is a fuller, more robust sound than group's previous two discs, reflecting their decision to shake up the entire recording process for this project. Not only did they hand the production reins to an outsider for the first time, but they also added a stable of musicians with whom to collaborate. Moreover, Donwill and Von Pea recorded each song on the album together (as opposed to individually as they have in the past).
Xist Music and Jahaziel have released the lead single from Jahaziel's forthcoming album due out later this fall. "They Don't Know" features a guest appearance from Maxi Priest. Jahaziel and his family do community outreach with The Eden Network in North London. "This song is a social commentary describing the darker side of the community I live in. A side that many within it want to escape, and one that many outside of it would rather ignore."
