Tune of the Day: Kee Riche$ ~ Northwood & Tajauta

[dropcap size=big]K[/dropcap]ee Riche$ is one of many young rappers who are exploding out of the L.A. scene right now. With a few projects under his belt, including last year's slowed-down, autotuned In Love With a Trapper project, Compton born-and-raised Riche$ has shown his versatility, but also that storytelling and introspective lyrics are at the core of his appeal.

His latest video, for the song  Northwood & Tajauta, gives listeners insight into where he's from. Referencing two streets in Compton, the video is a tour of a rapper's daily life in the studio and relaxing in the park in his neighborhood. Taken from his Raised Off Rosecrans project, it's clear the rapper is rooted in his hometown and neighborhood.

"The track was all about me and my life," Kee Riche$ told L.A. Taco, "I wanted the outro to Raised Off Rosecrans to be as special as the name and the city behind the project so I had to dig deep and tell everything that was on my mind. The video was me visually painting a picture of my thoughts and words throughout the song, my boy Imagingbyx captured everything perfectly and I just wanted to make sure I represented my city as well as it supports me."

Riche$' favorite taco spot? "My Favorite Tacos is like a mix between my Mom's, Burnt Tortilla in Gardena or Tacos El Guero in Compton on Atlantic." Good choices!
