Richie had had a long history of relationship with Fat Joe, and that was one of the vital instrument in solidifying his fanbase. According to him,

"Fat Joe is definitely the big homie, got a lot of knowledge and game from him.

Been rocking with him for maybe 7 years now, it’s always been solid.

It’s never straight business or that type of relationship, it’s been really a family relationship.

He gave me a feature when “All The Way Up” was at its pinnacle, so that showed me how much he rocks with me.

Once it when #1, we still shot that video.

When people are at their pinnacle, they’re real selective how they work.

That’s just what it is.

Even outside of music, for someone to rock with you while their record is taking off, that’s dope."[9]

Richie Wess grants different news outlets and blogs interviews.

In an interview he was asked to talk about his wildest memory from touring with Purpp

"The wildest memory that I remember [laughs] was at the W in Barcelona.

There were dope hotels throughout the whole Europe tour but when we got to Barcelona, there’s a hotel called the W. They have the best penthouse in the whole country, so Purpp dropped 10 bands on the penthouse for the day.

Like “fucjk it, we getting the best house.”

Pump had this room, it had the spinning bed.

We had everything lined up — the party, the set up — and bro got sick.

Purpp!

We had to cancel the whole night.

We spent hella money, had all the party favors available.

It was a $10,000 L. It was food poisoning because we’re eating all this different shit.

By the time we finally had a day off and chilled, it just hit him.

You know how that shit is, it had the whole vibe down.

Can’t do shit.

"
