Rich and Ryan independently put out what would become Cassie’s breakout hit, “Me & U.” Cassie was later signed to Bad Boy Records.
He helped release Cheri Dennis’ “I Love You.” Ryan Leslie produced and wrote “I Love You” for Cheri Dennis.
He and Rich Dollaz jump-started Dennis’ career when they released the track independently.
“That’s kind of what made Richie Dollaz, due to the fact that those records did so well radio-wise and I worked them by myself independently before Cassie even got signed to Bad Boy and when nobody was even paying attention to Cheri,” Rich told The Launch Magazine in 2012.
He worked on Ryan Leslie’s “Diamond Girl.” Rich and Ryan worked together to help other artists gain momentum, but in the late 2000’s the duo teamed up to work on Ryan’s singing career.
