Song: Rich Amiri – “Punt” (Prod. by Devstacks & JayXXL)
The Internet Money Teen Sensation Turns on the Charm and Embraces his Player Ways in New Single
“For someone who has only been rapping for two years, Rich continues to deliver nothing but perfection track after track.” – Lyrical Lemonade
Manifesting his sky-high ambition for stardom with a versatile vocal range and a suave appeal beyond his years, Rich Amiri has more than enough talent to back up his shining confidence. Asserting his heartthrob status, the Boston native returns to kick off his city boy summer with “Punt.” Anchored by a celestial synth-like instrumental by Devstacks and JayXXL, the track continues Rich’s recent streak of diverse beat selection, allowing him to demonstrate the full potential of his vocal instrument. On “Punt,” Rich takes full advantage of that creative mindset, adopting a flow that juxtaposes his full-bodied baritone voice with equally smooth high-pitched melodies. Exhibiting his range like a peacock proudly displaying its feathers, Rich channels that same confidence throughout the track: “Baby, I ain’t no cheater/Step so hard my feet hurt/She don’t want him, she feeling me.”
“Punt” arrives as Rich Amiri’s first new single since sharing his 12-track project, EVOLUTION, entirely produced by Internet Money and released on the day of his signing to Internet Money Records. Home to the recent singles “Poppin” ft. Lil Tecca and “Salty,” EVOLUTION is the latest step in Amiri’s rise from SoundCloud to nascent stardom. In 2021, he released his hit “Never Fail,” which recently surpassed 3 million streams on SoundCloud, which sparked a series of underground hits. Last year, the rapper shared his debut EP For The Better, which featured guest spots from SSGKobe, Summrs, and others.
With his new deal with Internet Money, the respect of his peers in the melodic rap game, and a fast-growing fanbase, Rich Amiri is out to take over the game. Stay tuned for much more from the rising star in the near future.

Hypnotic and honeyed, Rich Amiri’s voice is like little else in rap. Having only recently started taking music seriously, his syrupy melodies have already helped him stand out from his peers in plugg&B–a slurry blend of soul and cloud rap that’s been taking over the internet. Amiri’s humble and nonchalant about his gifts but that hasn’t stopped him from becoming one of his scene’s most free-associative songwriters. He switches lanes with grace, as evidenced by some of the highlights from his recent EP Chase. Tracks like “J10” are low-key and sensitive, while “Never Fail” allows him room to rage, showing off his many sides in quick succession. Though the 18-year-old hails from Boston, he’s a child of the internet who’s been uploading bedroom recordings to SoundCloud since 2020. Like many Gen Z stars, Amiri is something of a one-man army. He says even before he made music, he was on TikTok “from sunup to sundown,” meaning he knew exactly how to get “Never Fail” to go viral—and it’s now inching toward 2 million SoundCloud streams. Amiri’s just getting started, but he’s already starting to accomplish his goals, reaching fans and sharing his innermost feelings. And yet, he’s quickly learned not to force anything. He’s made it this far by trusting his gut, after all. “If it’s a good beat, it’ll speak to me,” he says. “Then I make it speak to other people, too. “
