“Ok Ok I’m sh*tting on you assholes, spit that fastlane game, no crash course. That’s right, that’s right be careful what you ask for, f*ck with mine, I’ma bring the whole task force. Spit that, spit that, that’s what they all ask for, the Michael Bivins, New Edition, new platform.”
Rich Cole, CEO of his own label, (AMG) The ABiatorz Music Group, native of Richmond, CA recently dropped his first official project,“The Rich Tape” Album, produced by Grammy Award winning MyGuyMars from 1500 or Nothin’/Hustle Gang and Bobby Ozuna, GRAMMY nominated producer Jake One, which was hosted by DJ Skee. Although Cole has been in the game for quite a few years, he decided it’s time to give the fans a formal FULL project. The album features some of the greats like Too Short, B-Legit, Locksmith, LA and more. One would swear Cole has had former experience with other projects by how exceptional the album is. I guess that’s what he means by
“Don’t be good my n*gga, be great. The legacy we leave is the one we make. Keep fighting thru the pain and we gone be straight. One chance in a lifetime, no replay.”
‘DON’T BE GOOD BE GREAT’ DON’T BE GOOD BE GREAT” and Rich Cole proved it thru-out the album. “When you look at Rich Cole the artist, it’s not far from who I am. This is not a character. This is ME. I put ME in the music.” Rich Cole explains.
< h2> On this 24-track album, “The Rich Tape” Cole< /h2> displays solid mixture of compelling styles, plus it speaks volumes. The BEST thing about the album is there is a little something for everybody, and that separates Cole from the rest. SPEAKING OF EVERYBODY, now peep this, who can’t relate to this?
“Everybody know I got a few b*tches and they all want attention, but u the only one I’m gone mention cause u the one that ride for me like my n*ggas do. And I swear right now, girl I got u. I know that together we gone kill it cause u the f*cking realest, getting money on a mission to these millions cause u the one that ride for me like my n*ggas do. And I swear right now, girl I got u.”

Dope cuts like “Cadillac Music” “CADILLAC MUSIC” brings back memories of when you really felt Hip Hop deep down inside. The time when Hip Hop had that whole “togetherness” feeling. The time when nothing could keep you from it. Now I’m not saying Hip Hop is dead, yah get the point right…”The Rich Tape” really amazes by the intensity and the lyrical consistency. It’s not just great Hip Hop, its just great music period.
In the song “Bullion” (54 Gold Bars)”, “BULLION” (54 GOLD BARS) Rich lays it out pretty clearly in his bars-the lyrics lines in the song: “Here I have 54 of them [bars], all dope, all gold. On Wall Street, bullion refers to gold bars, as in currency, money. I am building my empire on a foundation of BARS. That’s what I want to be known for.” And Rich Cole has done an extravagant job thru-out the album proving he has GOLD BARS in “The Rich Tape” Album.
