Aug 2011 15

Rich N Famous  consists of two members, Chris Webb aka Young Handsly, and Nathan Nimley aka Young Bigz.  The group’s name sake comes from their struggle and determination to be successful and the desire that everyone has to be rich and famous.  Handsly, (21) was born and raised in Kansas City, Mo, and started creating music at the age of 14.  After his first completed song, he knew which direction he wanted to take in life. Bigz, (22) was born in Liberia, West Africa, but came to Kansas City at 18 months old.  He recorded his first song in the 6th grade and dropped his first mixtape as a freshman in high school.
