Who is FlyBoi Rich?
FlyBoi Rich is your average “hood” kid telling his stories from what he has seen and been through. I try to keep it 100, I just ain’t got no filter when it comes to what I talk about. I try to bring lyrics and bangers together. From the Eastside of Detroit Glenwood, I came up with a big circle tryna win together. I’m a sports junkie so it’s heavy sports talk in
How did you get into the rap space?
I always played around with it. People around me started telling me I was nice and then I started taking it more
What’s your experience like in the Detroit rap scene?
It’s been cool. I’ve been around a few people that showed me some of the local areas early. It changed a lot as far as getting out face to face, it seems like social media platforms raise awareness a lot. Its all for the good, it’s bringing attention to the city I’m with it.

I usually try to get real witty with the words and
Why do you think fans identify with your music so much?
I think because it’s something good to the ears first and then the music
How do you think artists like Sada Baby and Tee

His grind and dropping track after track showed our dedication and grind they
Who is your favorite rapper from Detroit? Why? Gotta say either Royce or Em
What’s next for Fly Boi Rich?

What’s your 2019 looking like?

Bring back some of these old neighborhoods I use to go to or live at before its too late and somebody from out of town capitalize on it.
