In January, Rich The Kid hinted at a new installment of his record label's compilation series, featuring tracks with signees Famous Dex and Jay Critch. Today (May 22), the project, creatively dubbed Rich Forever 4, receives a release date.
The "New Freezer" rapper announced the news in a tweet that also unveiled the album's previously teased cover art, which imagines Rich, Jay and Dex as the cartoon Animaniacs. "JULY 13TH RICH 4 EVER WILL BE AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE," Rich tweeted. The tape will be the label's fourth compilation, following Rich Forever 3, released last June.
Earlier this month, Rich The Kid and Jay Critch offered a taste of the project with the lead single, "Near You." The tape follows Rich's debut album, The World Is Yours, released in March, and Dex's debut album, Dex Meets Dexter, which dropped in April. Jay is yet to release a solo full-length.
The announcement comes hours after TMZ reported new details in Rich The Kid's ongoing divorce proceedings with his estranged wife, Antonette Willis. Willis says in divorce documents that Rich was physically abusive, frequently prompting visits from the police. Willis also claims Rich forced her to receive three abortions. The Rich Forever Music CEO has not publicly responded to the allegations.
Rich The Kid also made news recently after taking cryptic shots at Lil Uzi Vert in the music video for his song, "Dead Friends," which features Rich digging a grave. Uzi responded by wishing blessings upon Rich The Kid and his family.
