Rapper Rich Boy is dipping his hands into business ventures outside of music. Like Russell Simmons, and recently Lil Wayne’s Young Money company, the rapper is set to release his own line of pre-paid credit cards.
According to XXLMag.com, the Alabama rapper has partnered with Plastic Cash International LLC to introduce a line of reloadable MasterCards, which encourage teens, college students, and young adults to stay out debt.
“I feel like it’ll help America if we learn at an early age how to manage this money,” Rich Boy told XXL. “I’m tryna’ reach every neighborhood; not just on a profit situation, but just giving people learning experience [on] what to do with this money, this new, digital, plastic money.”
While Plastic Cash could’ve teamed up with a number of other celebrities, CEO Brian Newberry said Rich Boy was their rapper of choice because he is “socially conscious about his community.”
The Rich Boy-branded MasterCard’s will feature images of the rapper from different photoshoots, at least two were seen in XXL’s story.
