Y.N. RichKids Bio

Young rappers Y.N. RichKids have gone viral with their snack-tastic hit “Hot Cheetos and Takis”, but there’s a lot more to this group of kid rappers story than just what they eat. “Hot Cheetos and Takis” has already reached over 2 million views, with some music critics calling it the song of summer 2012! Find out more about Y.N. RichKids in their Kidzworld Bio.

Afterschool Special

The majority of the members of Y.N. RichKids are just twelve years old and under, and it’s no wonder since the group got started as part of an afterschool activity group. Originally part of the North Community Beats and Rhymes program started by the Minneapolis YMCA, Y.N. RichKids are the most popular to group to come out of the program to date, which has actually been credited with starting several young rap groups since its inception in 2006 by simply bringing musically talented kids in the area together.

Snack Attack

Y.N. RichKids quickly realized that they had accumulated some real talent in their ranks, and “Hot Cheetos and Takis” is a far from being the first song that the group has written and performed together, they have many of their songs available on their website. The kids didn’t set out to become famous on the internet for this snack anthem, in fact some of them are still oblivious to the attention, but one thing is for sure, by simply talking about something simple that they love, they’ve gained a lot of attention! Center Director for the North Community YMCA Alicia Johnson said:

"We knew eventually the rest of the world would catch up to the love that we as a staff, and as a YMCA, and as a north community have for the kids and their music. The kids were like 'We have to do a video for this song, because this is our favorite thing.' Plus, they wanted to eat their favorite snack."

RichKid Acclaim

Music critics were immediately floored by the energy, talent and attitude in the group, each rapper has their own distinct style and the song was undeniably catchy. In fact tastemakers Rolling Stone rated the song 4/5 and proclaimed that the Y.N. RichKids had created “what may be the summer's final truly great jam."
