How old is Rich the Kid, and where is he from?
Born Dimitri Roger on July 13, 1992, the Queens, New York rapper is currently 27-years-old. His parents are Haitian, and he grew up speaking Creole in his household. At the age of 13, Roger’s parents divorced, and he moved to Woodstock, Georgia, where he lived with his mother.
The rapper grew up listening to rap legends including 50 Cent, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, 2-Pac, and Jay-Z. However, after moving to Georgia, he began listening to artists of that area, including T.I. and Young Jeezy. Roger first began rapping under the moniker Black Boy The Kid, but soon after switched to Rich the Kid.
How did Rich the Kid get famous?
Roger worked at Wendy’s at 15-years-old and realized he wanted to pursue music full-time. Then, at 16-years-old, he accepted an opportunity for a studio session and began taking rap seriously. He started to land features on other rappers’ mixtapes, which brought him attention and co-signs from famous rappers including Young Thug and Gucci Mane.
The Atlanta rapper also met the well-known local rap trio, the Migos, at a club, and they collaborated on the 2013 song, “Jumpin Like Jordan.” He then released his debut solo mixtape, Been About the Benjamins, the same year, and his sophomore project, Feels Good to Be Rich the following year.
Around this time, he signed to the Migos’ label, Quality Control Music, but they parted ways. He also inked a deal with Lyor Cohen’s record label, 300 Entertainment; however, that fell through as well. In 2016, he started an imprint, Rich Forever Music, and signed Chicago rapper, Famous Dex and Brooklyn native Jay Critch.
Rich the Kid’s successful music career
The following year in 2017, he signed a deal with Interscope because he felt it was the best option as a father of three and for his career goals. The rapper said he talked to several labels and turned down a deal with L.A. Reid’s Epic, even though he was “offered a crazy deal” because Interscope “gave him the opportunity to take over the game completely.”
That same year, he tasted his most music success yet with his Kendrick Lamar assisted single, “New Freezer” due to an accompanying dance that went viral. Roger followed it up with 2018’s “Plug Walk,” which also streamed very well, despite him only taking 15 minutes to create the song.
He has since released two albums, The World Is Yours and The World Is Yours 2 in 2018 and 2019. They have both peaked in the top five on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 charts.
