Don’t call it a comeback, because it’s not. But, every once in a while Rich Boy drops a single that makes me hope he will at some point relive “Throw Some Ds”.
He came close last year with “Haters Wish”, and now he’s released a more hard hitting track. It’s not his best work and it’s rougher than the adult contemporary synths of his past songs (not necessarily a good thing), but it does feature some nice soft piano lines under the threats and brags. Rich Boy’s drawl makes just about anything he says sound good, even if it’s the tired themes of: haters, women, rims and cars.
