Rich The Kid and Soulja Boy Are Dropping a Joint Album
Rich The Kid may still be locked up after being arrested alongside the Migos at Georgia Southern University last month, but he's been far from quiet. Earlier today, the Quality Control MC spoke with XXL from behind bars to announce that he has a new joint album with Soulja Boy called Get Rich on the way towards the end of July.
The two Atlanta-based rappers first linked up nearly two years ago and have been traveling back and forth between L.A. and Atlanta recording and shooting videos together for the past year, Rich said. The title of the album, which will come out on Quality Control/Stacks On Deck Entertainment, comes from a song released a year ago titled "Get Rich," which you can check out below.
Soulja Boy has been busy musically of late, dropping his new mixtape Swag, which featured Migos, Chief Keef, Troy Ave and more, earlier this month. Rich The Kid, meanwhile, is still locked up and sharing a cell with Migos member Offset, who is also still behind bars following their April arrest. Rich said he expects his next court date next week to determine how quickly he will be released; Offset said last week he expects to be released within three weeks.
In addition to the album, Rich The Kid and Soulja Boy are also planning a joint tour after the project is released, which he said will include an international leg as well as a sweep of the United States. Check out the artwork above and keep an eye out for Get Rich coming this summer.
