Rich Gang Debut ‘The Tour, Part 1′ Mixtape + Lifestyle Tour Dates
The rap trifecta of Rich Gang -- Birdman, Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan -- release a new mixtape, 'Rich Gang: The Tour Part 1,' today (Sept. 29). The collection is the soundtrack to the trio's upcoming Lifestyle Tour, which begins in November.
The 20-song collection features Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan spitting luxury rhymes and threats of bodily harm over infectious, bass-heavy trap beats. If you enjoyed listening to their 'Lifestyle' song this past summer, this mixtape is for you.
In an interview with XXL, Birdman explained why he teamed up with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan for the project.
“I became friends with Thug first, and he introduced me to Quan. I saw talent in them, and I wanted to see them reach the next level," he said. "I saw that they weren’t just rappers they are artists with the potential to be musicians -- like Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. I recognized that type of spirit in them from day one."
As for their Lifestyle Tour, the jaunt kicks off Nov. 1 in Shreveport, La., and will hit 12 other major cities including New Orleans, St. Louis, Atlanta and Miami before wrapping up on Nov. 29 in Baltimore, Md.
