Rich Homie Quan – “Flex” Video

Since teaming with Young Thug and Birdman to form Rich Gang, Rich Homie Quan's become a rap fixture. And fittingly so -- his woozy, rap-sung flow makes for instant-hit material, and the rags-to-riches narrative never really gets old, especially when underscoring a nightclub altercation followed by a speedboat getaway. In director Be El Be's new… More »

Rich Homie Quan Makes Speedboat Getaway After Allegedly Punching Security Guard

Rich Homie Quan & Young Thug – “My Homie”

Atlanta rap superfriends Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug have been making incredible music together, at a staggering rate, for months now. That partnership gave us one of last year's best rap full-lengths in the Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1 mixtape. Some of us have been feverishly anticipating a Part 2 ever since we… More »

Kid Ink, Tyga, Wale, YG & Rich Homie Quan – “Ride Out”

I love Fast & Furious movies more than I love most things in this cold, cruel world, but they sure do weird things with rap music. For a movie franchise that has given acting roles to multiple rappers (Ludacris, Bow Wow, Ja Rule, Tyrese if he counts), the movies have a weird flattening effect whe… More »

The Week In Rap: Your Old Droog And The Corniness Question

There was a moment last year when people on the internet were convinced that Your Old Droog was really Nas in disguise. Droog released a self-titled mixtape out into the world without any previous exposure. He didn't make videos. He didn't put his picture on the cover. Indeed, there weren't any pictures of him o… More »

The Week In Rap: Farewell To The Jacka

After three and a half years, Mixtape Of The Week is dead. In its place, we've got a new feature on Stereogum, one loosely based on Chris DeVille's Week In Pop column. The Week In Rap won't go as deep as that column does, but it'll give us a chance to go in deep o… More »

Rich Homie Quan – “Have You Ever”

With his last few tracks, Rich Homie Quan has been exploring a more accessible sound, and "Have You Ever" is his most gooey and sentimental yet. With a beat from KC Da Beatmonster that feels like it's actively lifting up your heart, Quan asks things like "Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow?"… More »

Young Thug – “M.O.M. (Mind On Money)” (Feat. Rich Homie Quan)

Atlanta weirdo-rap friends Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan continue to make ridiculously good music together every time the mood strikes them. Since giving us the excellent collaborative mixtape Rich Gang: Tha Tour Vol. 1 a few months ago, they've already teamed up on loose tracks like "Chainsaw Massacre" and "Hold Us." Now they're back… More »

Rich Homie Quan – “Flex”

Teaming up with Young Thug was simultaneously the best and worst thing that could have happened to Rich Homie Quan. On the one hand, being part of the most exciting duo in mainstream rap has elevated his profile significantly. On the other hand, he's currently suffering from Big Boi syndrome, his shine blocked slightly by… More »

Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan – “Hold Us” (Feat. PeeWee Longway)

A few months ago, Atlanta rap bugout kings Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan teamed up for the incredible collaborative mixtape Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1. Apparently, there's a Part 2 coming, potentially arriving any day now, even if the tour of the title never actually happened. And since that first tape came out,… More »

The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2014

In 2014, rap's biggest names more or less sat the year out. Kanye West never got around to releasing that populist masterwork he's been promising. Drake threw a bunch of great songs up on Soundcloud rather than compiling those songs into an LP. Jay Z went on tour with his wife but gave us no… More »

Travi$ Scott – “Mamacita” (Feat. Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan) Video (NSFW-Ish)

Over the summer, the young Houston rapper/producer/Kanye understudy Travi$ Scott released his Days Before Rodeo mixtape, and one of its tracks, "Mamacita," enlisted the hyperactive Atlanta rap superfriends Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. Though all three of these guys have made a lot of great rap music, the song got over less because of… More »

Lil Boosie – “Like A Man” (Feat. Rich Homie Quan)

Between Life After Deathrow and Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1, Lil Boosie and Rich Homie Quan are two of the year's great mixtape artists.

DJ Drama – “Right Back” Video (Feat. Jeezy, Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan)

A couple of months ago, DJ Drama shared "Right Back," the star-studded, propulsive lead single off of his upcoming Quality Street Music 2.

Rich Homie Quan – “Milk Marie” Video

Unless we're counting RTJ2, my pick for the year's best mixtape is Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1, the showcase for Atlanta freakout artists Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. The two share the spotlight on most of the mixtape's tracks, but both get a couple of solo moments to shine. One of those moment… More »

Rich Homie Quan & Young Thug – “Chainsaw Massacre”

Last month, Atlanta weirdo buddies Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug teamed up for Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1, the best mixtape anyone has made in 2014. Their collaboration has not ended with that. DJ Fresh has debuted a stray, vaguely Halloween-themed Rich Homie/Thug collaboration called "Young Thug," in which these young men reference… More »

Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan – “Freestyle” Video

"Freestyle," which is not a freestyle, is one of the best songs on Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman's wonderful new collaborative mixtape Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1. Thug and Rich Homie both get surprisingly personal on the song without tying anything to a particular concept. And in the new video, from director… More »
