Rich the Kid teases about his death, word on social media is that he is changing his name
After his verbal lash at 300 Entertainment, Rich the Kid is breaking hearts all over the world as fans try to figure out if the rapper is actually dead.
Rapper Rich the Kid has taken his fans by shock after his Instagram page showed only one text-image which read: "R.I.P Rich the Kid (1992-2018)". The post captioned as "Thank u all my fans & family for everything 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾." No additional context about the time and cause of death has been given yet.
However, there was one hint given by Rich Forever Gramz's comment on Rich the Kid's Instagram post claiming that the rapper is probably going to change his name. Looks like putting up the altered identity is the reason why Rich the Kid has tagged himself as dead. Later Rich also liked a tweet which indicates the fact that he is probably just trolling his fans on social media sites.
His death is not yet confirmed, however, he has removed absolutely all traces of him from social media. Although there is another Instagram page which goes by the name, Rich Forever Gramz, the same name which claimed the rapper's plan to change his name.
The post comes just a few days after Rich lashed out at label 300 Entertainment through a clip on Instagram.
In the clip, which has been deleted from his account, Rich can be heard declaiming the record label. As he did not want to be a part of the contract anymore, he had said, "F*** 300 [Entertainment], y’all suck. Listen, y’all gotta let me out this damn contract. I don’t wanna be with y’all no fuckin’ more. I told y’all I get y’all this money back. I don’t wanna be with y’all label no more. Y’all suck. Y’all is trash. Listen, young independent artists, do not sign with 300 Ent. They’re the worst, worst label ever. [sic]"
He has reportedly signed a new deal as a solo artist with the Californian recording label Interscope. Rich is among the several other musicians who have been complaining about 300 Entertainment. According to the founder of Quality Control Music, Pierre "Pee" Thomas, the label has given its artists some of the hardest times in their careers.
While speaking to Complex, he said, "For 18 months, we couldn't sell no product...Whatever that was already out, that was already on iTunes or whatever, that was cool, but anything that we were putting out, it was like we were shackled down." Probably, this dispatch is the reason why Rich changed his name alongside the new deal which launches him as a solo artist.
