Rich Homie Nard – Homie Dont Play Dat

Interview by Lucky Smith

Can you introduce yourself to those who may not know who you are?
What up World!! I go by the name Rich Homie Nard but if you really know me or are close to me, I’m just Nard.

We understand that you are from Rich Homie Quan’s circle. Is there some significance with you both using “Rich Homie” before your names?
Absolutely!! We all started from the bottom with dreams of making it to the top. Rich Homie Quan started the name and we never looked back. We (Rich Homiez) were a small group of people that believed in being a part of a movement that was bigger than ourselves. Now, we have the whole world saying or wanting to be a rich homie. I think that’s big!!

Do people get you confused since there are so many similarities?
To be honest, in music I feel you should be yourself. If you tell your story it could never be the same. True enough, there might be some things that may seem similar like experiences, but thats life. But when two people give their point on a similar experiences, its never exactly the same. i feel like that’s what music is about giving, your perspective on life.

So how long you two been working together and what’s your relationship like?
Since the day he got serious about his craft so you could say day 1. That’s my brother!

We’ve heard a few songs of yours and “Homie Dont Play Dat” really caught my attention. Are you a fan of “In Living Color”?
Yes, I loved the concept. I wanted to let people know that homie don’t play that. #iswea

What was your thought process in writing the two singles you have now?
I don’t write. I just say how I feel. Anybody can put words together but can you make it mean something? Anybody can rap to a beat, but everybody can’t make a song. Its not that easy. It has to be in you. Not on you.

A lot of critics are coming down on new artist and their music. You seem to have a message in your music. Do you feel you are on a different path than these other new artist?
A lot of artist these days just make music for the club with no message. That’s not my problem. My job is to be me at all times. I want to connect with my fans by revealing one simple truth….I’m just like you. If I can make it through the pains and struggles of this crazy world, you can too!

What do you want people to get out of listening to your music?
A chance to know a little about me. I believe if you give people a piece of you the outcome will be real. A real fan is worth more than fast money to me because money comes and goes. Real fans love you to death and there is no better feeling.

Do you have any projects out now or something coming out soon?
I have a lot of songs leaked out right now, not by me, but other people so I just put them on my sound cloud. I guessed it worked out in my favor, lol. I will be dropping “LWFTD (Long Way From That Driveway)” early this year. Also, I’m in the studio cooking up another mixtape that should be out late spring/early summer. I’m working on my clothing line (#iswea) as well. They say, “Slow Feet Don’t Eat”, so as you can see I have a lot going on.

Do you have any hobbies other than music?
I have kids so when I’m not working on music I try to spend all the time I can with them. Other than that, I have a love for old school cars with big rims. Lol, people call me country but I don’t care though. That’s how we ride in the A (Atlanta)!

Top 5 artists? Go. 
Just 5? Lol, I listen to a lot of music but since you all want to put me on the spot I’m going with Rich Homie Quan, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross.

If you have to choose, are you going to sign with a label or stay independent?
I’m currently signed to my own label, BDS Ent. Does that count? Lol, if not, when all of my I’s are dotted and all of my T’s are crossed then yes. Until then I’ll stay independent. They say the bigger the fan base, the more money you get. Lol.

Do you have anything you want the people to know that we might not have asked?
I would like to take the time to thank Twenty4Seven Magazine for blessing me with an oppotunity to let people know a little about me and what I stand for. It’s tough for independent artist like myself to get this type of exposure. I have a dope website for fans to visit www.richhomienard.com and everybody can follow me on Twitter and IG @richhomienard.Last but not least, my name “Nard stands for  Never Accept Reality or Defeat. You have to stand for something or fall for anything. Life is what you make it.
