Rich Flow Talks Being a ‘Black Man in America’


Rich Flow is a poet and luminous songwriter who was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania during the essence of classic hip hop. He was raised on Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Lauryn Hill, and many more conscious-minded artist who emerged during his teenage years. Since 2010 he’s amassed 6 music compilations under his independent imprint, while touring the major cities of North America as well as Ghana. He was issued an article in the XXL Magazine as a rising artist. He was awarded the Young Achievers plaque by Norristown Men Of Excellence and the H.O.R of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania for his active influence amongst his hometown in effort to demand growth. He’s won first place victory in Montgomery County’s 2019 National Poetry Month Competition. And by watering his grassroots, he’s started a performing arts company called LETS LINK LATER, which essentially acts as an open mic platform for the kids and creatives of his community.

He stopped at the by the station to chop it up with DNA about his coming of age in music, his most revered project ‘Black Man in America’ and his newest project ‘Drugs Raised Us’, which he is displaying as a ‘social experiment’.

“I feel like drugs has influenced ALL of America, and even beyond, and everybody has their personal experience, whatever side of the coin they fall on” Rich Flow explains. “For me drugs raised us ultimately means, exactly what it sounds like. I think you’d be able to understand a lot more once you hear the music, or the poetry.” That is exactly what happened. After the interview, he delivered the bars!
