Part of the Atlanta trap wave, Rich the Kid emerged in 2013 with his debut mixtape Been About the Benjamins. Influenced in equal measure by the two cities that shaped him, he owed much of his style to influences like Nas, Tupac, and Notorious B.I.G., as well as T.I. and Jeezy. After his first mixtape, he joined forces with fellow Atlanteans Migos. Along with the trio, Rich released a multi-year, three-part mixtape called Streets on Lock (a fourth collaboration, Still on Locks, was issued in 2015). His solo follow-up, Feels Good to Be Rich, arrived in 2014. The collection included multiple collaborations with the likes of Young Thug, Kirko Bangz, Soulja Boy, Riff Raff, French Montana, Kodak Black, and Yo Gotti.
