When I was fortunate enough to be recommended Rich Chigga’s music, I found his innocence in appearance, and subtle hints lyrically to be really enticing and interesting in a rap track. This remix removes that innocence, and rather than mainstream almost “socially acceptable” explicitness, it is simply strange. Visually, I thoroughly enjoyed the 18 wheelers decorated in neon like a Ferris wheel, and Rich Chigga’s signature fanny pack, shorts, polo and sneakers.
XXL comments that Ghostface Killah wanted to collaborate on a remix of “Dat $tick” as soon as I heard the track. For the sake of Rich Chigga getting his foot in the door within the American rap scene, and potentially the Wu-Tang Clan, I am extremely excited about this remix. Still, regarding “Dat $tick” I think the original is perfectly balanced between traditional rap themes and Rich Chigga’s inherent innocence. Rumor has it on XXL that Rich will have new music coming soon, and of course I’m looking forward to it.
