Dimitri Leslie Roger was born in Queens, New York. He is of Haitian descent and grew up speaking Haitian Creole fluently. After his parents' divorce, Roger moved with his mother to Woodstock, Georgia, a suburb 30 minutes north of Atlanta, when he was 13. His first rap name was Black Boy The Kid, but later changed it to Rich the Kid. Being one of the original artist signed to Quality Control Music along with The Migos he has had to work very hard to stand out among all the talent in Atlanta.
Fast forward to June, 2017, Rich the Kid announced that he had signed to Interscope Records. In an interview with XXL, Rich the kid talked about his decision on signing with Interscope. "I was talking to different labels, Columbia, RCA, Epic, I decided not to sign with Epic even after L.A. Reid offered me a crazy deal. Interscope understands me and my vision for myself and also my label. Interscope gave me the opportunity to take over the game completely and that's what I'm going to do."
In the track "Plug Walk" Rich The Kid takes advantage of the heavy bass, snappy claps, and amazing closed high hats to deliver one of the biggest records of 2018. This track is so hot that it would be hard to count how many times its been remixed by artist around the world including lots of other majors. So without further due I wanted to share this tasty treat for a good southern meal with all of you guys!
