Rich The Kid Puts On A Show At Fashion Nova
The Georgia native is always one to care about social issues, but in other news he might be one of hip-hop’s best-dressed artists. The “Plug Walk” hitmaker took his talent — and his fashion drip — to the offices of popular retailer Fashion Nova in May 2021 to put on what appeared to be an impromptu concert on somebody’s desk.
Rich The Kid posted an Instagram video of himself serenading a Fashion Nova employee, right on top of her desk. While some people could be heard laughing and enjoying the show, other people in the office were acting like they didn’t even notice a celebrity was performing a few feet away from them. It’s unclear what the real story is behind this; commercial shoot, or did someone really pay to have Rich The Kid rap for their co-worker?
“Boss b*tches love ❤️ @fashionnova 😂😂😂”
Rich The Kid Pays For Making It Rain
The month prior, Rich The Kid was ticketed by authorities for throwing cash in the air to a throng of people in Beverly Hills. Reports are that Rich was parked on Rodeo Drive with his Rolls-Royce when he suddenly started making it rain. Before long, two police officers on motorcycles arrived and pulled up behind his car.
The rapper pulled up in his expensive Rolls-Royce Phantom on Thursday right outside the Burberry and Louis Vuitton stores in Beverly Hills, where he started throwing wads of cash in the air. It wasn’t long before a throng of fans — of the rapper and money, of course — showed up to catch it. (TMZ)
Rich The Kid Joins Rostrum Records

According to Rostrum Records, Rich will maintain his independency while putting music out on the popular label.
