Rich Robbins is a Chicago-based rapper and teaching artist who defies genres, as his sound and roots span from Philly to Oak Park. He grew up in Young Chicago Author’s (YCA) Louder Than a Bomb poetry festival and took his energy to college on a Hip Hop scholarship in Madison, WI.
In Madison, he grew into his artistry and released two studio albums featuring artists like Mick Jenkins, Saba, and Supa Bwe. He also opened and collaborated with artists like Noname, theMIND, and Joseph Chilliams. In 2016, Rich’s album “All.This.Gold” was nominated for Best Rap Album by the Madison Hip Hop Awards. In May of 2018, Rich released his project, “Red Butterfly” which has attracted national attention from outlets such as Vocalo Radio, DJ Booth, Lyrical Lemonade, TheseDays News, and more. Rich is now back in Chicago carving his own lane as a versatile storyteller and performer. His most recent project, STARFISH, released July 2019, is now available to stream everywhere.
