Tha Rift originally hailing from Cleveland OH, moved to Minneapolis MN after leaving the military to further his music career. Rift has made a “huge bang” in the Twin Cities after releasing a song called “EGO” featuring local native artists, J. Plaza and Daddy Dinero. The song caught wind locally and grabbed the attention of Grammy Nominated artist Allan Kingdom, who shared the song via social media and later invited Rift out to perform with the group. The song later landed Rift, J.Plaza, and Daddy Dinero, their first record deal as a group, at one of the largest independent Record Labels (Rostrum Records) in the country as FREEWIFI Music. Rostrum is also the former home to Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.
