Rich

Album: Bigger Than Me (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The song's Rock Davis and Jay Rodriguez-directed video was shot in Los Angeles and portrays the consequences of living the fast life. "The song is more about me, but the video is more relatable to everybody," Bangz told MTV News. "Even if you ain't lived or went through it, you know somebody that went through it. Basically, it's like, we all wanna be rich, yeah, we know that. But how do you wanna be rich? Do you wanna take it slow and do it the right way? Or you wanna take the fast way, and nine times out of ten you f–k around and get caught up, get hurt, killed, whatever."

    "Are you willing to take the consequences of doing it the fast way,?" the Houston rapper added. "Are you willing to be patient enough to do it the right way?"

    Bangz is joined by the song's featured guest, August Alsina as well as Ty Dolla $ign in the clip.
