Rich Homie Quan attended Ronald McNair Sr. High School, where he played baseball for four years. He aspired to play baseball professionally, and played at varsity level during his freshman year. This earned him a scholarship offer from Fort Valley State University, which he did not accept.
Instead he began rapping, and found employment at a nearby airport. He lost his job, however, which led him to become involved in illegal activities like stealing. He was arrested and convicted on burglary charges, and served 15 months in prison.

Rich Homie Quan Quotes
“For hooks, I’m inspired by The-Dream and Drake. I remember I was like in 11th grade and my best friend Jared, he used to always have an iPod, and I was like ‘Dream? You listen to The-Dream?’ He was like, ‘Bruh, you got to just listen.’ When I listened, that might’ve been it. Love/Hate, oh my god man. Honestly, that’s probably one of the biggest musical influences. That made me want to just step outside the box.”
“I done went to jail for a little minute. I went in for 15 months for burglary. I knew my dream of being what I wanted to be were scarce to none. So I knew I had to come up with a new hustle. I sat, I thought.”
