The first single is called ”I’m Taking All That” and is making waves on social media & several music blogs. Here’s a description below:

"Before dropping his up coming EP entitled, The Masses, Minneapolis MC Rich Garvey blessed us with its first single, I'm Taking All That. With the 808 heavy Travis Gorman production backing him, Garvey rides the beat with his well structured verses, and declarative hook both blending well with its eerie feel. It even got the co-sign of Minneapolis legend Atmosphere on Twitter."
