Rich the Kid Boasts His Upcoming Release ‘Life’s a Gamble’ Will Be the ‘Best Album’ of 2024

Rich the Kid sat down with Billboard News’ Catrise J to talk about the crazy year he’s had so far and his upcoming project. The rapper is capitalizing off the success of his first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit with “Carnival” by releasing his first solo project in four years.

Life’s a Gamble is set to drop some time this month, and is his fourth studio album. The project features the likes of Chief Keef, Offset, Quavo, Takeoff, Ty Dolla $ign, Ye, Peso Pluma, Rob49 and Bia, and is executive produced entirely by Ye and Ty Dolla. He dropped the first single, “Band Man,” a couple weeks ago.

Rich spoke on why its taken him four years to follow up 2020’s Boss Man, saying he’s been handling label drama, but he’s also been able to use the time wisely. “Really been dealing with stuff behind the scenes with labels,” he tells Billboard. “But I feel like the time that has gone by, I been able to perfect my craft.”

“I’ve been able to perfect the songs and the music and I know exactly what the sound is, what i’m shooting for,” he adds.

The rapper also talked about the Latin album he’s working on with his Dominican DJ, Ralphy Black. Rich says they’ve been trying to the let the music flow organically as they’ve been making songs on the road. Rich credits Ralphy for introducing him to Peso Pluma’s music, which made the rapper shoot the Mexican artist the DM that led to their recent song “Gimme a Second.”

When asked what was next for him, Rich ends the interview by shouting, “Life’s a Gamble! The best album of ’24! Life’s a Gamble, baby. Yeah!”
