Richie Guapo is the type of artist that originally got me into writing about artists and musicians. As a rap artist based in Tampa, Florida, he obviously has quite a group of competition. However when it comes to production quality, and staying true to his word, Richie Guapo is one of the absolute best. One of his goals is to keep everything he releases at high quality. His first music video, released on January 1st, 2016, for his track “Death Row”, currently has a mere 1.1K views, while the production value is that of music artists at the very top today. This 22 year old artist hasn’t had too much time in the studio either. Only making music seriously for about a year now, he has many experiences with fans and a various amount of projects being worked on as of right now. When interviewing Richie, he had mentioned that currently he is working on an album entitled “Say Le$$” which has been in production for a little over a year now. Unlike his other work, this album will be “a bit more personal”. “It’s more so showcasing my own style of music that I’ve been crafting for the past couple years”. Additionally, he also mentioned that this album will have a story telling element added into it, which hasn’t been seen on too many albums from artists as small as Richie Guapo, which will make it a much more unique listening experience.
Personally, after listening to a few tracks Richie Guapo has produced, he has easily moved up on my top favorite artists list, and I urge any fan of the underrated rap scene to check out some of his music. Richie’s album “Say Le$$” will be released in the time frame of March or April of 2018 if kept on track, and I highly recommend keeping up with Richie on his social media to keep up to date with this highly underrated artist. Follow him on everything!
