In the past couple of years, teenage rising star Apex Rich has had to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders. He was almost homeless after his mother kicked him out of the house, a best friend he looked up was brutally murdered and the Jersey City, NJ native had to reevaluate his life path, quickly shifting hustles. Now with a sniper focus on his career as an MC, the 20 year-old is breaking through.
As a youngster, Rich says he didn’t get exposed to hip-hop until he was about eight or nine years old.
Unfortunately, some of Rich’s family were heavy into the streets and played an influence on him following them down that slippery slope.
Out on the streets, the rhyme Goliath had to turn to friends for shelter. Longtime friends convinced him to give up the streets and dive into rap.
