As a child growing up in Los Angeles, H–RYDA was fortunate enough to be around rap legend Tupac Shakur and original Thug Life member Big Syke. On the one year anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s death, his big brother passed away. It was real hard for him to overcome such great losses and as a result, he decided to move to Las Vegas, where he continued to work on his music and his grind. H–RYDA would eventually hook up with 2pac’s group, the Outlawz and guest appeared on the Outlaw’s LP, Ride With Us Or Collide Wit Us. H–Ryda would than later link up with legendary Bay Area label THIZZ NATION and realease HRN1:The Virus- Half Dead Half Livin’ with bangers like “Ohhh! Behave” feat.Yukmouth and many more. Having some critical acclaim amongst his peers,H–RYDA‘s hustle and drive lead him to ink a distribution deal with the powerhouse Bay Area digital label EMPIRE where he realeased his sophomore album H–RYDA vs THE PLANET. Having collaborations with the Bay Area tycoon E-40 in the hit single “MONEY MACHINE” H–RYDA‘s momentum had him working with legends like Scarface, Jacka, Kokane, Blu DaVinci, Mr.Fab, and others.
Clearly H–RYDA is carrying the torch for this THUG LIFE and is currently in the process of finishing his third LP titled “HR” which is scheduled to be released later this year. H–Ryda has worked hard to put the finishing touches on this upcoming project adding OG’s 2 Short and E-40 on his new upcoming single “THE PLUG” being released spring of 2017 and collaborating with Freeway,Lil James, Outlaws, and producers J Classic, M16 and The World Famous D-Boy. You can also catch him doing a cameo in the independent DVD comedy film “WHAT ARE THE CHANCES” which gives people a chance to see a different side of H–Ryda.
