Born to a single mother, Richie Bux came up on the Westside of Michigan City, Indiana. Spending majority of his younger years with his grandmother while his Mother continued to earn an education for herself. Around the age of 7, Bux’s mother & stepfather moved them both from MC to Indianapolis, IN.
As his love for fashion flourished, he was eventually nicknamed “Rich Boy” in his new neighborhood of 71st & Michigan Rd. due to him being able to afford such large sneaker collection at a very young age.
When Rich Boy and his friends reached the teenage years, Rich Boy jumped off the porch and became Richie Bux, as the young man looked for an outlet to express himself creatively. He started recording music at the age of 16, with tons of real life Midwest Hip Hop stories to tell.
