Biography

Started in mid-2010, Rich Kid Sound System (RKSS) is “not quite 100 percent hip-hop, yet not quite 100 percent rock.” Their sound is a melodious mash-up of Emceeing and Indie Rock with a dash of Top-40 appeal. “Catchy hooks, killer melodies, and a hip-hop tie, along with a different sound, has positioned RKSS as THE group to watch for” says the305.com, who named Rich Kid Sound System as "2011 Breakout Artists of the Year.” “RKSS [is] a hit-making force to be reckoned with,” according to Confusion of PigeonAndPlanes.com (Voted #2 ‘Best Blog’ by fellow Bloggers).

Having been immersed in the melting pot of South Florida’s culture for many years, Rich Kid Sound System’s members immediately identified with the need to make music that the audience could dance to and interact with. “So many people come in and out of South Florida - everyone is from somewhere else” says Q. “People in Miami enjoy sunny days, warm weather all year long, music, and dancing. We wanted to make music that combined all of those elements.”

RKSS has numerous musical influences ranging from: the Beach Boys, the Beatles, Lykke Li, MGMT, and Justice, just to name a few.

Although the newly emerging sound may be in its infancy, the talent is not. After working with radio mainstays that include Pitbull, Flo-Rida, Lupe Fiasco, and multi-platinum producers such as Tony “CD” Kelly, and Jim Jonsin, the founding members Q and Leo found themselves at a crossroad. “We were coming up with concepts for songs… musically and lyrically… that did not fit into what A&R’s needed. But they loved the songs, so we figured we would just take those songs and make our own project” says Leo, about the creative restraints from major labels. Fed up with the commercial bureaucracy, the production and song-writing duo decided to collaborate on a project of their own, and Rich Kid Sound System became alive.

For live shows, RKSS adds a full band including: Shawn Hagood (RKSS drummer) and keyboardist of The Dirty Heads (Huntington Beach, CA) along with a host of Miami musicians hot off their various tours.

The live band ensures that RKSS amplifies the energy and dynamics of the recorded music while supporting the lead emcee, "Q."

Lyrics

I WANT IT ALL

Written By: Q, W0lfc0at

::LYRICS::

(Chorus)
Headstrong,
Fearless,
We're reckless cause we're young,
We're Chasing, the good life
I can taste it on my tongue
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
All, Ah-All, Ah-All Yeah

(Verse)
What's cooking I want the whole damn pot
Don't mention me with all of these have not's
Call themselves movies, but all of them bad plots
And I'm going to plant seeds till I grow cash crops
Wanted an Adriana Lima but couldn't afford the beemer to get up and in between her,
I was nothing but a dreamer,
A bad little schemer
Want the money and the vixens
Want the good life hope it comes with all the fixings
Hope it an't fiction
Cause I've been wanting this ever since biggie had the door kicked in
Tell me can you listen,
To my greedy contradictions,
And wouldn't do the same in this position,
Uh-uh I want it all indeed
They say I'd never make it smoking
all this weed
Bong rips and beats is all I need
And I'm gon' proceed to make these proceeds
Cause we...

(Chorus)
Headstrong,
Fearless,
We're reckless cause we're young,
We're Chasing, the good life
I can taste it on my tongue
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
All, Ah-All, Ah-All Yeah

(Verse 2)
Give me the high rise and ocean front view,
A view of the skyline, we're smoking blunts to
If you don't like mine, you know its fuck you
A round house full of kicks, now you know that's kun-fu
And it all comes to,
How far you gon' go to get yours
I set forth, jet force
When I set course,
For greatness,
Pardon me on my lateness to brake this,
Rich kids up out the basement
Got a drive for the money never park my brinks,
I'm here to leave my mark I heart my krinks,
Try to say what I say I start by jinx,
Pay me my pub anytime you sing,
Ha, one of my old songs
Blow a blunt in the coupe and get my high road on
Yeah, and homie I'm so gone
I had to tell them other dudes good bye so long, we on

(Chorus)
Headstrong,
Fearless,
We're reckless cause we're young,
We're Chasing, the good life
I can taste it on my tongue
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
I Swear I Want It All
All, Ah-All, Ah-All Yeah

(Bridge)
Could you give me what I want
Give me what I need
Till I get it all I'm a get no sleep
Could you give me what I want
Give me what I need
Till I get it all I'm a get no sleep
Cause I want it all. I want it all.
Ill trade in everything Ive got Cause I want it all....yeah
