Album: Philthy Rich – Real N*ggas Back In $tyle
E-40, Young Dolph, Mozzy, Nef The Pharaoh, Sauce Twinz, Zaytoven, 808 Mafia Join the Oakland Rap Vet On New Album, Debuted by Mass Appeal
The central figure in the Bay Area’s street rap scene, Philthy Rich is joined by an A-list cast for his new album, Real N*ggas Back in $tyle. “With a decade-long career, ties to his region’s old guard, and a clever affection for delivery surrounded by repetitive earworm hooks, Philthy’s grown from a Mac Dre-affiliate into a venerable heavyweight of the Yay Area revival sound,” Mass Appeal states in their album premiere. Fellow Bay Area rappers E-40, Nef The Pharaoh, Mozzy, and IAMSU join Philthy Rich on the project, while Real N*ggas Back in $tyle also boasts collaborations with Young Dolph, Sauce Twinz,Young Scooter, Johnny Cinco, HoodRich Pablo Juan, Freeway, Paul Wall, and Jim Jones, with production from 808 Mafia, KC Da Beatmonster, and Zaytoven. “Zaytoven, he from the Bay but live in Atlanta, I love his beats,” Philthy Rich told Mass Appeal. “I was in Atlanta a lot working on this project and our grinds are alike.”
In the lead up to the Real N*ggas Back in $tyle album, Philthy Rich shared a series of singles, starting with music videos for the IAMSU-assisted money-making anthem “Make A Living” and trunk-thumping Young Scooter collab “Buss Down (Right Now).” In honor of his long-time friend, Bay Area rapper The Jacka, Philthy Rich commemorated the prolific rapper on the one year anniversary of his passing alongside Paul Wall and Freeway with “King Jack,” which debuted via Noisey. Most recently, he teamed up with a “murder’s row,” as Complex called it, of local talent with “Statue of Liberty,” featuring E-40, Nef The Pharaoh, and Ezale. Philthy Rich’s Real N*ggas Back In $tyle, the first in a series of three albums with the same title, is currently available for purchase at iTunes and streaming on Spotify.
Philthy Rich is holding a meet and greet today at NFL star Marshawn Lynch’s flagship Beast Mode store in Oakland from 3pm-6pm, and he’ll be hosting #AODMondays at Ace of Diamonds in Hollywood on Monday, Feb. 29th.
