RICH TYCOON (AKA FILTHY RICH) - recording artist / song writer / producer

To make a long story short...I began rapping and writing songs at the age of 12.  I was living in east Oakland at the time and was inspired by my classmates Dangerous Dame and Lil Rob.  Break dancing was very popular back then, but I wasn't that great of a break dancer.  So I decided to try writing rap songs. 

At age 16 I co-founded the rap group T.I.P. Posse while I was a resident at a group home in Castroville, California.  The group didn't last long, however a couple of my high school buddies ended up moving to Washington state where they met a couple of members of Sir Mix-a-Lot's posse, specifically his hype man E-Dawg.  E-Dawg heard my demo tape, which I recorded at legendary dj/producer Kut Master Kurt's studio in Santa Cruz, California.  Eventually E-Dawg and myself ended up recording 2 songs at Sir Mix-a-Lot's studio, Drop Top and Lil Locs.  Drop Top was the lead single off of the compilation album Seattle...the Dark Side.  The song received national radio-play and so did the video, which aired on MTV, BET, and many other media outlets.  Drop Top was only the beginning....
