Hailing from Charleston, S.C., a city known for its southern charm, great seafood and cultural history, Righchus is slowly, but surely adding his name to that list. The hip hop artist—born Matt Bostick—has been rapping since the third grade, but it wasn’t until four years ago, while pursuing a B.A. in Journalism from the University of South Carolina Upstate (he graduated May 2010), that he decided to pursue it as a career.

Inspired by religion, his family, movies and David Ruffin, Righchus’ style is self-described as “conscious down south.” Truth is a focus of the music he creates—truth to himself, where he is from and the world around him. Loaded with metaphors and a southern flavor, every line is a representation of Righchus. His first LP, “Chaos Theory” was released August 2009 on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon. The LP was southern soul-driven with a lot of synth and booming 808s.

During 2009, Righchus performed more than 90 shows in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Florida. He has built and tested an enthusiastic stage presence, opening up for artists Warren G, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Tech N9ne, The Movement and Wiz Khalifa. Righchus has been featured on the cover of Charleston Scene magazine and Charleston City Paper. He was named the 2010 Best Local Hip Hop Artist by the readers of the Charleston City Paper and his music video for his single “Go Hard” won the 2009 South Carolina Online Hip-Hop Award for Best Video. Additionally, the music video for “Ridin’” gained accolades from BET and Writer’s Block Media.

Righchus’ new album “Sweetgrass & Supras” is very synth-driven with a very honest southern feel. It’s mostly inspired by the life he lives in search of success through his craft and art. He also has an EP coming out this spring titled, “The Illa,” which is a very up-tempo, feel good sound, with live instruments, a lot of great hooks and even greater verses.

“Music is about the expression of art, love and creativity,” says Righchus. “We shouldn’t be afraid to get out of our boundaries and rap about betrayal, love, passion and motivation and try to set a new standard for hip-hop in the city.”
