Jay Critch and Rich The Kid Stick Together on New Song “Near You”
Brooklyn's own Jay Critch is one of the more well-known, up-and-coming rappers in New York City, and working under the tutelage of his Rich Forever Music CEO Rich The Kid has surely helped him keep his buzz up. The two frequent collaborators' newest song is the bouncy "Near You," a cut off their upcoming label mixtape, Rich Forever 4.
The song is produced by one of Rich Forever's in-house beatmakers, TheLabCook, and is all about taking someone else's girl and not feeling bad about it in the least. Rich The Kid opens the song, handling the rather rude chorus. "Bring her closer, that's your girl, might bend her over/When it's over, I'ma act like I don't know her," he raps, explaining his plans for your girlfriend. "The Bentley it get her excited, feel like an ocean inside it/I love the way that she ride it, I'm flexin' on you and she like it."
As for Jay Critch's verses, he takes a slightly more subtle approach. "So much designer, that bitch don't know what I got on/I'm in that BM with your BM and the top gone," Critch spits, employing some clever wordplay. "I'm jumpin' out of that Ghost, color popcorn/Remember pullin' up, jumpin' out for that dope, then I got on."
The two Rich Forever rappers have been in the mix as of late. Jay Critch just appeared in the video for his feature on Wifisfuneral's "Knots," where they ball out in a jewelry store. Rich The Kid recently made headlines for taking a swipe at former friend Lil Uzi Vert on a "Who Run It" freestyle with Blac Youngsta. Uzi doesn't seem too concerned, choosing to wish Rich well instead of retaliate.
