Learning to play piano by ear, mimicking riffs and bass lines he heard on the radio and television; this was the beginning of Rich Quick’s music career. At the age of 7 he obtained a copy of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”. The CD had another track on it, the instrumental which sampled Stevie Wonder’s “Pastime Paradise” from Songs In The Key Of Life Vol. 1. Quick spent hours penning rhymes to the instrumental as a child not knowing this was the start of a life long passion.
