Who is The Best Richard? The Best Richard is the unique duo of Ricos and Donnie Dupree Richard. Approaching hip hop with a youthful delivery but mature lyricism and captivating subject matter, The Best Richard has managed to keep audiences entertained and industry executives eager for more.
The Best Richard formed in the summer of 2009. Born and raised in the city of Chicago, spending various amounts of years in California, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. Both emcees were part of another crew that had fell apart, but their love for the music and performing on stage motivated Ricos and Donnie Dupree to continue making music. Opening up for such acts such as Slum Village, Snoop Dogg, and Slick Rick, The Best Richard performances have kept audiences cheering, singing along, and laughing due to their ability to display their sense of humor on stage. Songs like “Who Snitched On The Weed Man”, and “Maybe When I'm Drunk” have separated The Best Richard from your average hip hop acts who just “rap” about how tough they are. The Best Richard have been labeled as energetic, stylish, and innovative, all due to their performances at such venues like The Double Door, The Metro, and U.S.Beer Company in Chicago and Crash Mansion in Los Angeles.
Being very independent, and creative, The Best Richard has managed to catch the attention of industry executives and consumers. From the eye-catching logo, to the T-shirts and hats, The Best Richard has been able to market themselves not only to people who love hip hop but also those who love style. From the time the duo formed, Ricos and Donnie Dupree were thinking of ways to market themselves in every form possible to make The Best Richard a household name.
The Best Richard has received love from The Sun-Times, The Chicago Reader, and Metromix. Collectively making music for 15 years, The Best Richard has been influenced by Rakim, Common, Kanye West, Big Daddy Kane, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, BlackStarr, Method Man and Redman, and a host of others. The Best Richard are a duo set to make it’s mark on the world and leave every audience feeling good and stress free.
