“Pocket Change” is a new single Prod by Qreamy Beats and performed by Boston indie artist RICHFRVNK for Teamstersz Ent., who also have E-Famous & S.F Jay on their label. If Drake is the emotional heart of hip-hop and Kendrick Lamar is the embodiment of its soul, RICHFRVNK is whatever part of the body makes you get lit and party with your friends until 4AM, only to wake up with a much lighter bank account and vague memories of an Uber ride. RICHFRVNK is the night owl, and make no mistake, he knows this is his duty.
After previously dropping magnificent releases that spawned a number of street bangers, he is back with his new studio release, “Pocket Change”, as he attempts to claim his spot as the King of Trap music and rap’s most unique flowing voice.
The Boston native with a voice blessed by the raspy rap gods has blasted on the scene with this infectious banger. In the process he sounds like the master of the street anthem, peddling motivational trap music better than anyone else has done in the underground in recent times.
“Pocket Change” is a tremendous compendium of sounds and rhymes you want from a trap-rap single. RICHFRVNK is the rare artist who reaches both his musical and commercial peaks simultaneously. Anyone who has ever enjoyed turning up to Future will find something to appreciate on this track, as their quite a few similarities between Future and RICHFRVNK in terms flow and rhyme style.
So yeah, “Pocket Change” is good. It sounds incredible and is an undeniable victory lap for RICHFRVNK – a cap to an incredible run of releases and collaborations. The new single offers a cohesive commercial product that captures RICHFRVNK lush current sound and whether it fulfills everyone’s expectations or not, it’s an undeniably definitive work.
He seems to glide over the track like it’s been slathered in butter. But another of RICHFRVNK’s gifts, the thing that puts him far beyond the vast majority of his contemporaries, is that he sounds emotionally honest. And people will find what they want from this track, or just luxuriate in the rapper’s ability to make intoxicating music that just sounds satisfyingly beautiful.
The old rules of rap don’t apply anymore, and RICHFRVNK is boldly at the front of the new scheme of things with his unusual flow and eclectic skillset.
