"The "Double R" has rightfully staked his claim as one of Oakland's finest. Richie Rich belts out some great hits in this, his debut solo album. A clear representation of pure, smooth West Coast Hip Hop, Richie Rich's signature rasp brings a refreshingly unique and original flavour to the game in these parts. He particularly excels in delivering laid-back, ponderous or reflective rhymes with "Do G's Get To Go To Heaven", a dedication to the late, great Tupac Amaru Shakur, and "Pillow", both showcasing the diversity of his range. He clicks nicely with Tupac Shakur, The Luniz and Rame Royal on their respective appearances. All in all, it's a smooth album with a nice mixture of laid-back and catchy beats; at least 80-90% of them are solid, quality songs. Richie Rich is truly a star to look for in the near future, leaving us in great anticipation for this seasoned veteran's next drop.... hopefully soon!"

"Richie Rich - Seasoned Veteran (Def Jam, 1996)You may remember Richie Rich from rhyming with 2Pac and The Luniz, among other West Coast rappers. This album was pretty decent, with my favorite songs being "Do G's Get to Go to Heaven", "Let's Ride" (a classic), and "N's Done Changed" with 2Pac ("No more regular rapping!"). It's weird that T-Boz's "Touch Myself" remix was on here but I liked that song so I'm glad it was. Everything else was okay but the songs that stood out were the ones I mentioned. -EJR"

"Richie Rich's (Richard Serrel) "Seasoned Veteran" (1996) is a dope album from a slept on rapper. Repping Oakland and the Bay, Richie Rich has a distinctive and memorable flow, and is an entertaining MC to listen to. Production on this release is solid throughout. My favourite cut on this one is "Do G's Get To Go To Heaven?", an outstanding track dedicated to the late great Tupac Shakur a friend he did a number of collabs with. The track has a memorable instrumental, and is laced with addictive/reflective lyrics and a smooth chorus. 2Pac is featured on "Niggaz Done Changed", another great track. Other standouts for me include the ominous "Funk", West Coast Party banger "Let's Ride" and very smooth "Pillow" feat. Rame Royal. Listening to other West Coast MC's years later its clear to see the Double R influenced the MC's to come like Snoop Dogg. "Seasoned Veteran" is Richie Rich's best album, and an album worth having in the collection."
