Happy Birthday, Rich Dollaz!
Love & Hip Hop: New York has a long list of cast members that is still growing (Remy Ma is the latest). The new season is coming soon, but today (Aug. 4) is celebration time. Cast member Richard Trowers, better known as Rich Dollaz, turns 38 years old.
After starting as an intern at Bad Boy Records, Rich Dollaz quickly proved he had a remarkable ear for talent. He was behind the push of Bad Boy Records' more successful millennial pop acts, including Gorilla Zoe, Cheri Denis, Ryan Leslie and Cassie. Dollaz also notably convinced Bad Boy to push "Me & You," which became Cassie's biggest hit of her career. He helped manage Danity Kane by the time the girl group released "Showstopper."
Rich Dollaz's management experience also extended to G-Unit. He managed Olivia, the first woman signed to G-Unit Records as well as oversaw Precious Paris' career. Neither had as much success as his Bad Boy clients and also ended up on Love & Hip Hop.
While his Bad Boy run is over, Rich Dollaz got a renewed relevance from his stint while on Love & Hip Hop: New York. Plus, his business and romantic relationship with Erica Mena added to keeping his name in the headlines. The two may have broken up, but Dollaz is still winning with his own management company, Dollaz Unlimited.
