Since the arrival his 2013 debut album, The Life and Times of Jonny Valiant, Rittz has watched his buzz soar to an all-time high.

In September, the North Atlanta Metro area rapper, born Jonathan McCollum, released his fourth studio album, Last Call. This also marks an amicable end to his record deal with Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne's independently run label, Strange Music. Last Call finds Rittz deploying his rapid-fire flows to tell stories, provide social commentary, and share his own personal struggles. With songs such as "Down For Mine," "Dork Rap," and "I'm Only Human," Rittz pulls heavily on the street-smart, cool, and cocky influence of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony with a Southern twist and rock infused production to create a sound that's far from cookie cutter.
