Richie Evans was once The Game’s protege, but he’s been independent for a while, building his music catalog on his own. He’s back with a track produced by The Olympicks (Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, etc.). This song “For You” features R&B’s new chart-topper, Vedo, and is becoming an anthem for the ladies. The Hip-Hop/R&B track shows Richie’s undeniable lyricism and how it can fit into a radio hit, such as this.
