DETROIT, MI – One of the worst days of his life was when RichRozay watched his best friend Juice die right in front of him.
The two had been best friends since first grade. They grew up together and did everything together. They played sports together and got in trouble around town together, and they enjoyed music together. Early on Juice knew that RichRozay had a special talent with music, and he would always encourage his friend to pursue music as a career. He even gave his friend the stage name RichRozay. But Rozay never took his friend’s encouragement all that seriously … until the day he was shot and killed.
“My real name is Hosé, so he made a play off that when he gave me my nickname,” he said. “When he was shot a couple years back, we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He always wanted me to pursue music and was always keeping me going, and after he died it really made me want to push into music. He was my motivation – always telling me to keep going hard, don’t stop, don’t sleep. He would always tell me that I could make songs that change people’s moods, and he would always keep pushing. So in a lot of ways I’m doing music today because of him.”
RichRozay has poured himself into his music in the two years since that fateful day when Juice died. The result is a body of work that he’s now ready to release to the world. Through collaborations with his older cousin, who has been a producer for years, he has created a unique sound and style that he believes will gain some major attention from fans all over the U.S.
“I feel like I’m different from everybody because I can multi-task different styles into one song,” he said. “I’m always switching up styles. Plus I’m a good lyricist and I don’t try to rap like nobody else. I feel like my delivery is very unique, with a lot of punchlines and catch phrases. I make music that people will really like and saw those catch phrases over and over. On top of all that, I’m really living what I’m saying in my music, and because I’m such a good lyricist I’m able to make people visualize what I’m describing. So whether I’m writing about my life as a single father, or going through family stuff, or losing my granny, or just rapping about the struggle – people can know that I’m an artist they can come to when they need a release.”
While RichRozay has a number of music videos on his YouTube channel, he said he’s excited to announce a new mixtape that should be released later this fall called “It’s So Lonely at the Top Vol. 2.”

With Northside Vegas on their shoulders, Kinfolk Kollab deliver their g-funk themed anthem, “Where You From”. The song also entices listeners to rep their city while indulging in a little liquor and smoke.
Consisting of K.A.T.O. and Jamel Deon, the newly formed duo Kinfolk Kollab aim to bring the funky West Coast sound that erupted heavily in the early nineties into modern times. The fellas showcased this motive and much more on their recently released, self-titled mixtape. It features “Where You From”, one of the project’s standout singles. So standout in fact that they reached out to filmographer Amine Tanzi to deliver an official video to back it. The video finds Kinfolk Kollab posted up with their people, giving viewers a glimpse into a day in the life on set. Bottles of Henny are flowing, blunts are blazing away and brutal bars are being served up for close to four minutes.
The instrumental was crafted by Moshuun, who is a producer favorite of the crew. He uses a classic piano sound with g-synths and xylophones encapsulating the funk movement. This of course brings out the best of both artists. K.A.T.O. kicks things off hard, speaking about the cold Vegas streets.
“so many niggas wanna see me gone / you playa haters is wishing I’m all alone or catch me on my own / never stop on the wrong side, know why? / on the west side, be dead bodies on road side”.
Jamel Deon handles hook duties, giving the song it’s potent party vibe in three steps, “it goes 1 for the Henny / 2 for the hoes / 3 for the blunt wrap with the hydro”. When he moves into verse mode, Deon gives the “Where Your From” theme a more national view as K.A.T.O. served a first person POV of North Vegas. The tail end of the single finds KK rhyming in a back and forth rap rhythm that showcases their strong musical chemistry. View the official video for “Where You From” up above.
