SickSideSS Interview With RICH MAHOGANY (aka Mr. Farricker, C-Rhymez)
Rich Mahogany (a.k.a. Mr. Farricker, C-Rhymez) was born in Pittsburgh, PA, but was raised out in Middletown, New Jersey. Hip-hop was something that wasn’t new to him, digging deeper into the culture he found his love for rhyming skills, b boying, graffiti, DJing, production, etc. He has been writing rhymes since about 13, but it has been something he has been taking real serious since about 19 or 20 years old. A bright future is hopeful for this young MC only being 21 years old and constantly hitting shows, grinding, and perfecting his craft, already gaining respect and sharing stages with everybody from a diamond in the rough to a seasoned rap veteran. When not rhyming, you can catch him editing, filming, and directing videos, and also making beats. Keep your eyes and ears open for his project “Most Slept on Nightmare” Dropping on Goldminded Records in 2011!
