Mixtape Of The Week: Rich Kidd - We Don't See 'Em (Hosted by DJ Khaled)
DJ Khaled's We The Best empire seems to be growing slowly but surely. Khaled is currently working on his 5th studio album, We The Best Forever - which is not to be confused with his previous album similarly titled We The Best, which spawned the name of the record label and studios of the same name.
Under the We The Best roster, you have Ace Hood who was the first signee, followed by Red Rum from Virginia and then R&B artist Jarvis from Atlanta. But among that squad of young talent, DJ Khaled officially brought Rich Kidd on to the We The Best line-up.
Not to be confused with another Rich Kidd from Canada, this Rich Kidd is straight 305 grown. His first prominent claim to success was a moderate reception to a song he released in late 2009 and early 2010 with Charles Reed called "What's Up". The song received tons of local spins and really did have a commercial appeal so it's kind of surprising to see that the song didn't rally impact the national circuit. Maybe they're saving it push it harder at a later date? Not sure.
