Richie Wess is a boss in every aspect of the word, and he’s here to bring that same energy into the music industry. Today, he unveils his newest project titled ‘Last Laugh’ via EMPIRE, following his previous release ‘Trained To Go’ via Warner Music Group/Asylum. The 11-track project features guest appearances from Rich The Kid, Smokepurpp, Jay Critch, Kuttem Reece, and his own artist Yung Dread.
Speaking on the project, Richie states, “I feel like anytime, anybody can count you out and put you into a certain category of a certain time frame. ‘Oh man he was lit, but now…’ Everything’s about relevance and always staying current.”
In Richie’s case, last year he went crazy on businesses. He explains, “I opened 3 food trucks, a restaurant, a recording studio… did a lot of business. While maybe one of my aspects wasn’t on music at the time: when I come back, I’m always going to get the Last Laugh. Because n*ggas still getting money, we still moving around. We can still do this in our sleep!”
Last Laugh came into fruition in 2 weeks, after switching up his recording process from writing to freestyling off the dome. He states, “I don’t write anymore. I used to write and think about shit, now I go in there off the top. Even the sound on this project changed how I sound sonically. Not putting too much thought into the rapping, going more into vibe and what the beat presents. Whatever vibe the beat gives you.”
