Southern Hip Hop Artist Rich Monii was born as Richard Charles Bailey, in Houston, Texas. He was adopted at age four, which was when his last name changed to Hatcher. He was writing lyrics at age ten. As time passed, he became more interested in music. He created his first instrumental at age thirteen, using Acoustica Beatcraft. By age fifteen, he was using Fruity Loops Studio. At age fourteen, he recorded his first single on his father's desktop computer, without him knowing. After getting kicked off the computer for recording without his permission and for using provocative language, he decided to try to get his own computer. It took a couple months for him to find one because he didn't have a job, which meant he couldn't afford a good computer. His first computer was an old IBM. He couldn't afford a microphone, but he was so determined to work on music that he plugged a set of earphones into the microphone insert to record music. He worked on music from four o' clock(when he got home from school), to at least four o' clock a.m. On October 28, 2009, a tragic event occurred. Rich Monii's oldest brother, Marcus Duane Hatcher, who liked singing and playing piano, passed away in an unexpected car accident. At that time, Rich Monii's music became more influenced, yet influential. He met a woman named Rosa Garcia on September 24, 2011, who is now his fiance, and mother of his beautiful daughter. He was contacted in April 2012 by QuestFax, manager of Crunchy Black (member of Three 6 Mafia), with a production deal, though no contract had been signed. He is still searching and deciding though. On December 6, 2012; 6 days before his daughter, Aaliyah Marie Hatcher, was born, his dearly beloved mother died of breast cancer . His 20th birthday was spent at his mother's funeral. He doesn't know who to blame for all the excessive pain, so he vents his pain by creating music for the world to hear.
