Lets Ride Records was founded by Rich and Kesha Porter in the city they were born and raised Charlotte, N.C.. Let’s Ride Records started giving artist that national exposure they had been wanting. They made a platform for artist to perform and compete on BET’S 106& Park Wild Out Wednesdays competitions. Artist like Cutty Cutright, D.Blake, Beatty and Lexii Saga and more were able to go on the show and get further in their careers.
The first artist the label put on the roaster was Christopher Cutright aka Cutty Boy who is best known for his hit Carolina Swag. Then becoming the first and only African American hip hop artist to represent the Nascar industry. Cutty has now cut the boy from his name and now goes by Cutty Cutright due to the man he has now evolved into.
There were others artist that came and went because the artists has to fit for the label just as much as the label has to fit for the artist. Since Let’s Ride is a family base and ran label it made the task of picking artist difficult so they only kept a small few.
Up next was Lexii Saga, a teenage old school with a new age twist. Writing at the early age of eleven and her story telling lyrics with dance moves from another level of dance based on hip hop, ballet and modern. She too appeared on BET’s 106&Park and opened up for artist like Travis Porter at NYU and other artists. As she graduated from high school a year early she decided to put her music on hold until she gets her college degree.
Lets’s Ride then toke a break to focus and enjoy life but came back with a vengeance in the spring of 2016 with artist like PB3 and Lil Richye, PB3 is a brother hip hop duo that has been compared to Kriss Kross, PB3 members King K and Trickye Rickye recently won best hip hop group of the year in 2017 Queen City Music Awards and have been gracing stages from their home town Charlotte, N.C. , Atlanta, California to St. Thomas, Virgin Island.
