As you all may have heard, Rich Homie Quan recently suffered from BACK TO BACK heat induced heat seizers while shooting a video, placing him in the hospital. Now, personally, I didn’t know how serious these attacks were until I saw an old classmate suffer from one, its a scary sight. This photo essay/interview took place two weeks before this unfortunate incident. We here at SWIFTLIFEACHIEVER are praying for a speedy recovery.
Check out what Rich Homie Quan is like from the perspective of Illinois-based photographer Ryan Lowry.
“The first time I heard Rich Homie Quan I was on assignment in Atlanta driving on back roads to the airport. I was listening to rap radio and “Type of Way” came on. It was when it was first starting to get radio play and I was driving in his hometown— it was this crazy, magical moment. I’ve been kind of obsessed with him ever since then. He’s a cool, female-positive rapper and just a good dude.
As soon as we got in Quan’s rental car he was like, “Do you do drugs?” and he pulled out a blunt and we got high. Usually rappers front, and I remember he was totally natural and we got along really well. He kept on being like, “I fuck with you Ryan.” Quan’s a hardened guy, but he’s also in touch with his emotions and he’s open about that. I like the photos of him in the bedroom—they kind of mirror both of those things, like, here’s this cut dude with tattoos all over his body posing in really intimate ways. In my mind, it’s just pure Quan.”
