It's been a long wait for Rich Homie Quan fans hoping the Atlanta rapper's debut album will actually see the light of day, but the latest news is looking promising. In an interview with Acton Entertainment, Quan revealed that Lil Wayne will be executive producing the album, joining Ryan Leslie. In this role, they'll help select records for the final project, as well as work with Quan on the recording process.
While Wayne's involvement is news, Leslie has been working with Quan on the project for a while now. The pair linked up at GeeJam Studios in Jamaica last June, cutting records for the project. Quan also revealed that Timbaland will be producing at least one song on the album.
The debut, titled Rich As in Spirit, doesn't yet have a set release date, but Quan insists it will be out sometime this year. With Leslie and now Lil Wayne contributing to the project, it certainly has the potential to finally deliver on all of Rich Homie Quan's years of promise and hit singles. Let's hope it actually finds its way out into the world sooner rather than later.
