Tech N9ne/Yelawolf affiliate Rittz, is finally set to drop his debut album later this month, with the April 30th release of The Life And Times Of Jonny Valiant, via Strange Music.

So far, the southern rapper has debuted his latest single, "Switch Lanes" featuring Mike Posner, in which he raps about his adventures behind the wheel over a spacy, smoothed-out track; as well as his "Like I Am" cut and video, which has been added to MTV Jams and mtvU.

The LP boasts guests such as Mike Posner, Krizz Kaliko, Big K.R.I.T., and Yelawolf, while producer credits go to DJ Burnone, Matic Lee, and Mike Posner.

Rittz got his first big break in 2010 when he appeared on Yelawolf's "Box Chevy" single. Riding the success of that appearance, he released the White Jesus and White Jesus: Revival mixtapes, was named a Spin "Breaking Out" artist in August 2011, and toured the United States four times in the last two years.
