Last month over 600 artists threw their hats in the ring for the “Have Dj Irie Host Your Mixtape on VIBE.com” Competition. Irie will premiere and host the winning mixtape all month long on one of the urban music scene’s most popular destinations, VIBE.com. Having worked with Timberland and a host of other top names in the game, you know DJ Irie will put it down!
Straight out of the Brownsville Brooklyn underground, Rox aka Mr. Young Richie Rich stood out for the folks at VIBE from the get go. So it’s no surprise why he was selected as the winner of the Have DJ Irie Host Your Mixtape on VIBE.com Competition. His unique sound and explosive energy can be felt through each line he emphatically spits on his winning track, Intro/Walken on Water. Music has always been the driving source behind Rox aka Mr. Young Richie Rich and has kept him grounded through a life filled with seemingly neverending uncertainties. It seems like one thing is for certain now, this will be a monumental year for the up-and-coming, soon to be 23-year-old.
Take a listen to his winning track below:
