Hi Rick, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I have been well, thanks for having me.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
My life dreams and struggles is what inspired the song. “Pot of Gold,” means getting out of your dreams and going after them what ever they may be.
Any plans to release a video to go along with this track?
Yes I definitely plan to release a visual for “Pot of Gold.” We just have to find the right person to shoot it., and come up with a good video treatment that will really capture a great visual to go with the song and its vibe.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording process was actually pretty dope. I was in the studio with the producer and i started to play with some sounds and made a pattern of what become pot of gold. Then my producer millionaire music started to add drums and all that while i wrote the song. Then we recorded it in about 15 minutes .
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
Well I am dropping an EP, so you can look out for that later this year. We are just putting the finishing touches on the project.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The title will be from Mirrors to Windows.
You have been involved in some groups since your inception into the scene back in the 90s – would you call this solo project a departure from those days or a follow up?
Yes I was in a group for a good while called MMG , but yes this will be a solo effort .
Any plans to hit the road?
I’ve done a lot of shows last year, and I hope to hit the road and perform the EP.
What else is happening next in Rick Envy’s world?
Right now just promote the single and get my name out there as much as possible and create some opportunities. I want to try to build a fan base. Also put out this EP. Those are plans; put the music and distribute it to the people. And try to get the awareness about me as an artist and rapper.
