A new album threatens to put this Richmond artist on the radio again.
Crash, formerly of the Richmond group A.O.B. (though he claims A.O.B. for life), is getting a lot of attention for his latest, recently released project Home Field Advantage.
This is the same artist who put out the hit several years ago, “Burning Up (the Rich City Anthem),” and whose uncle, the famous actor Glenn Plummer, appeared in the song’s music video.
The past success is part of the reason Crash’s latest effort garnered instant interest, and fans have been digging the new sound. Some fans have been sending Crash videos on social media of them bumping his new music.
The video below is one of the tracks from the new album (NSFW). The full album can be sampled and purchased on iTunes here.
Born as Kennard Plummer Jr., the Richmond rapper says his latest project grabs attentions without “adding to the chaos” in his city.
“I’m not talking about killing anyone, doing any set claiming or saying f— anyone,” he said.
While Crash comes from the same streets where Richmond’s warring gangs thrive (he himself has been shot twice), his album preaches a brand of hustle that puts money in the bank without landing anyone in jail or the morgue.
The chorus for one song, Get Sumn, states how Crash is “trying to teach them but they ain’t learnin, this playa ‘sh–‘ keep they heads turnin.” And while drugs and violence persist in the streets, Crash talks about keeping his focus on his music and career. A dad, the artist infuses fatherhood into his music.
“When I was down, nobody gave me a ride, I had to walk my path,” he rhymes in Get Sumn. “And [expletive] be like ‘Crash, why you talk so fast.’ Because time is money, do the math.”
We recommend that you check out the new album on iTunes. And if you don’t have access to iTunes or want a hard copy, visit all Rasputin stores or smoke shops along Macdonald Avenue in Richmond.
Here’s the song that helped Crash get serious radio play back in 2011.
