In the midst of the 2016 Independent Powerhouse Tour, Rittz and Krizz Kaliko caught up with Forbes to talk about the monumental year they’ve had thus far.
Although we’re not even halfway through 2016, Rittz and Krizz have been making groundbreaking moves with their music careers. Krizz successfully took on a whole new sonic direction with GO, expanding his musical boundaries and focusing more on his singing abilities.
Meanwhile, Rittz continues to mature musically, reaching what he believes is the top tier when it comes to his chopping style of rap, with the competition nowhere to be found. This style is evident in his upcoming album Top Of The Line, set to release this Friday, May 6th.
The combination of these two artists, along with countless other factors, helps Strange Music, as a record label, continue to excel.
“Strange Music, the Missouri-based independent record label that has gotten plenty of attention over the last few years for its business savvy and its high-powered, hip-hop-centric roster, has a lot figured out. When it comes to touring, merchandising, album sales, and more, the label has not only survived, but thrived during a perilous time for the music business overall.”
