Carolina Street Connect: Sonny Rich
Charlotte’s Sonny Rich is our Carolina Street Connect artist of the week.
Catch his new single “Wham” playing on Power98 FM at 9:30pm all week with Danny Diaz.
Carolina artist Sonny Rich is getting ready to roll out a project at the end of this year or early 2017, and is giving his fans the first glimpse into that project. “WHAM” is produced by Cassius Jay, who has made a name for himself working with Justin Bieber, Gucci Mane, Future, Young Thug, Migos and more. Sonny looks to follow in the footsteps of those great artists that Cassius has previously worked with. You might’ve heard this single during this year’s A3C evint in Atlanta, as Streetz 94.5 put the single in heavy rotation prior to the digital roll-out.
Previously working with Nicki Minaj, Jadakiss, E-40, and more, Sonny has built up a solid following in the state of North Carolina. Juicy J even shouted out Sonny in the “We In This Bi**h” remix with B.o.B and T.I. The most impressive co-sign though had to be from Jadakiss, when the pair were in the studio together working on “Hard Living” Jada almost snapped his neck hearing the bars. When one of the Top 5 lyricists of all time does that you know you hold something special. A US Veteran, serving in the US Army during the Iraqi War, Sonny now looks to make his mark in music. With an already impressive resume under his belt, Sonny is on the right path to that goal.
