Introducing Rich Hil!

Free MP3 of “Lady in the Hall” HERE

Check Out His Latest Mixtape, Limos Were Cool In The ’90s HERE And Keep A Lookout For "Trippy," His Collaboration With Kid Cudi, On The Web Now!

Emerging from a thick haze of hallucinogenic rhymes and vintage beats comes Rich Hil, the latest ground-breaker riding the next wave of hip-hop.

Since bursting onto the scene, Rich has made his mark with a series of mixtapes that show off his raspy croon and stream of consciousness narratives. An East Coast transplant now living in L.A., Rich Hil ambitiously fuses classic pop influences with hip-hop rhythms and blunted West Coast cool. On Limos Were Cool In The ’90s, he doles out frank rhymes about the highs of fame, power, and money — as well as that epic comedowns that come hand-in-hand with the lifestyle. Tracks like “Until We Bleed” and “All the Hippies Say” are spaced-out, down-tempo synth jams that walk the line between R&B and rap and delve into love and loss. On “Getting In Them Thangs” Rich wraps slinky verses around a hook featuring fellow artist Phlo. Rich is inspired by a variety of artists ranging from Memphis Bleek to Jimi Hendrix, and his sound draws from everything from classic soul to West Coast electro. It’s this idiosyncratic style that Rich Hil has dubbed “hippie,” a mix of vintage beats, unabashed tributes to drug culture, and a laid back flow that reflects his rejection of hip-hop’s blinged out, bottle-service past, embracing instead a back-to-basics lifestyle not unlike his indie rock counterparts.

Rich Hil and his distinctive croon have already caught the attention of artists like Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi and Swizz Beatz, and earned him praises from The Smoking Section, Nah Right, and OnSmash. His latest mixtape, Limos Were Cool In The ’90s was produced in collaboration with Atlanta’s legendary producer Don Cannon, and is a prelude to Rich’s upcoming debut full-length, set for release later this spring via Limo Life Records. The album will feature “Trippy”, Hil’s psychedelic collaboration with Kid Cudi.  

Rich Hil will be touring extensively this spring – stay tuned for dates!
