Timbalands Barber Is Rich

“The devil isn’t as strong as God” says Richie Gretah as he concludes his interview with me.  The truth is I wasn’t prepared or expecting to hear such a passionate story from him.  I linked up with him at the infamous Thomas Crowne Studios in Virginia beach, Va.   He is currently employed as Timbalands personal barber and within 15 mins, he gave Da Groove Tv show a vivid picture of life in the entertainment business and what he really took for him to attain his success.

He picked up the clippers as a young teen and from the first moment he held the cutting instrument in his hand, a love affair began.  He found his passion in life early and word spread in the hood quickly about the amazing talent young Rich possessed.  It was not uncommon for 10-15 people to wait patiently for a haircut from the now famous barber.

His words rolled off his tongue with ease as he told me he wants to inspire other barbers to set their goals and to grind hard everyday.  He gave all glory to God and knows that his father has been watching over him in heaven.  Rich never imagined that his clippers would have him traveling the world.

How did all this happen? He cut the hair of a little boy whose mother was connected to the stars.  She braided the hair of R. Kelly, Bow wow and De Angelo.  She was so impressed with Rich hair cutting skills that she called him when  the Hot Boyz came to town.  So he cut lil Wayne, Juvenile, B.G and Baby and basically the word spread about Rich.

He would go to the studio and cut anybody that needed him.  He has done Diddy, he has done Nas, Fat Joe the list is really just to long to name everyone!  He also made it a point to tell us about how he worked very long hours in a shop to accomplish his dreams and aspirations.

What I most admire about Rich is how he has taken the time to learn about the laws of good living here on earth.  “ You never know what tomorrow will bring, even if today is a little cloudy.  Tomorrow could be a sunny day!” explains Rich.  If you ever bump into Rich at one of the industry events, he will cut your hair for $100.00.

He has the type of personality that shines positivity and I look forward to chopping it up with him in the future.  He is a jack of all trades,  his gold label company which also includes hot new producer Mizzle is taking off.  Connected Music Group presents “Da Groove” TV show wishes him much success and  thank you for connecting with our audience.  The next time you are in town, I will have my 100.00 ready!
