The Factors >>> The Kids

Pleasantly surprised that the remix of Yo Gotti & Nicki Minaj's Freaky Tales-inspired single features the highly unlikely presences of Kansas City's Rich The Factor & his semi-protégé The Popper. Far more impressed, however, by Rich & Popper's own current single Aristocrat - the mannishness is brand new, the mobbishness is retro, the scritch is scratched if you're just after some no-frills K.C slap.

"I'm too tired, in deez streetz dress sharp as new knives
I move wise and don't hang with n*ggas who act they shoe size"

Summer is officially over, but it's always Funk Season in Kansas City - rest in peace Fat Tone, free Young Devi D, stay safe Yung Cat.

I love Rich the Factor and i'm glad to see him getting some love. Props to Thomas at the ex-100grandonmywrist for his write-ups on Rich and naming him as one of his all time favorite rappers. Thomas got me hooked on him and I still listen to Bucks over Fame 2 to this day.

Come back Thomas! He turned me onto a boat-load of slaps.

Good to have Rich the Factor back after the hiatus. Rich was really churning out some great releases late 90s/early 00s and 2009/2010s.
