RUNWAY RICHY & DC YOUNG FLY NEW MIXTAPE: CHINA CAFETERIA 2.5 “WIN” NEW SINGLE
Atlanta rapper Runway Richy is excited to release his highly anticipated follow-up mixtape China Cafeteria 2.5 hosted by MTV’s DC Young Fly. Runway Richy has recruited all-star features for this special project, including Gucci Mane, Trae Tha Truth, London Jae, Scotty ATL and producer FKi Saucelord Rich and Beat Monster Marc.
Runway Richy explains, “China Cafeteria is a landmark in my hometown of Decatur, GA. People of all walks of life come through there and everyone has a different story. I’ve seen single moms feeding their 4 kids with $20, local hustlers coming to get a quick $3.45 plate so they can get back to the trap and just the average working man getting an affordable meal. This project is about our stories.”
He continues, “I named this project 2.5 because I went through a lot of stuff since the original EP… nearly dying in the car accident, learning to walk again, performing on crutches and every other obstacle in between. It’s been a crazy time, going to hell and coming back, so I felt just calling it Part 2 wasn’t enough. 2.5 has that extra little push! Lol.”
Runway Richy has premiered China Cafeteria 2.5’s singles with HotNewHipHop (“I’ll Be There”), The FADER (“Switchin’ Sides”) and Pigeons & Planes (“Made It Happen”). He’s received critical acclaim for his music recognizing him as a “Rising Star In The Dirty South” (The SOURCE), the “Next Big Rapper Out Of ATL” (RESPECT.), “Entirely Entertaining” (HipHopDX), a “Rock Star” (The FADER) and he had XXL screaming “Pay Attention!”
Stay tuned as a brand new music video for next single “Win” will be released shortly. In the meantime, Atlanta fans can catch Runway Richy’s upcoming performance at BOBWOOD FEST on September 24 alongside B.O.B.

Runway Richy’s Biography:
With nowhere to go but up, Decatur, GA rapper Runway Richy has crafted his rocky journey into a catalog of street tales – songs that speak to those struggling for a better way. Over the years, rhyming was something to do in between dealing with real life situations – situations that often brought trouble. “I’m the one who had one foot in the streets and one in the booth,” he remembers.
In 2016, he released a breakthrough mixtape called China Cafeteria that included production by ATL hitmakers Zaytoven, FKi, Metro Boomin and Southside. Runway Richy was on his way to a promote the mixtape when out of nowhere, his truck was brutally hit flipping it over three times and ejecting him out onto the streets. The devastating near fatal car accident forced him to learn how to walk again, but he bounced back with his against all odds inspired song called “Made It Happen” featuring legendary Houston emcee Trae The Truth. That song and its follow-up single “Switchin’ Sides” featuring Gucci Mane has received critical-acclaim by The Fader, HotNewHipHop, Pigeons and Planes, OkayPlayer, XXL, The Source,2DopeBoyz, Earmilk and many more.
Runway Richy will release his new mixtape China Cafeteria 2.5 with guest features Gucci Mane, Trae Tha Truth and more on August 25.
