One September morning, in my college housemate’s car, on our way to class, he played “ No Love Songs “ on the aux.
About 30 seconds into the record, I searched for the song on my phone to save & listen to later.
Eager to discover more of this addicting sound, I decided to download his most recent project.
Best decision ever.
After streaming all 14 tracks of Street Poet, as well as his other discography, I became an avid supporter of the Bronx artist.
Luckily, a month after that car ride, I got to interview him, in the heart of his neighborhood! (Cypress Ave stand up!)
Although a nerve-wracking experience, I’m glad we got it done.
With that being said, enjoy my conversation with Richie! Featuring his longtime friend & fellow rising artist LNF Stacks.
Lastly, I apologize for the poor audio.
If you made it to the end, thank you so much for reading. Leave a comment if you enjoyed this piece. And please, share this with your friends!
