His tag was given to him when he was in eighth grade in Texas and one of his classmates started calling him Rich Homie Quinn as a pun because the rapper Rich Homie Quan was popular at that time.
RichHomieQuinn grew up playing video games on his Nintendo DS and GameBoy. But this changed when his cousin introduced him to PC gaming with Minecraft and Roblox.
He is currently completing his degree in Business with a minor in Finance.
He began uploading content to his YouTube channel in August 2014, but he uploaded very rarely. However, he only really got into content creation in March 2018 when he started streaming on Twitch. For the first two months, he didn’t attract any viewers and didn’t think that his channel was going to go anywhere. Although he started it out as a hobby, he did hope that it may evolve into a possibility over time. For this reason he streamed almost daily from the get-go.
He doesn’t have a set schedule but tends to stream daily for between 2 – 7 hours per session.
Something that keeps me motivated is that I grind content and also, I sort of see Fortnite as my future, so that’s something that I see a lot of people not really having that passion because they’re just playing Fortnite… just to have fun and maybe make a bit of cash. When I want it to be my future, I want [streaming] to be my job for the rest of my life… I also just have a really good work ethic that I think helps me stay motivated.
One thing I do [to maintain my grades,] Is a do school before Fortnite, so that I can just focus on Fortnite for the rest of the night. Definitely putting school first and not procrastinating is something that I am really good at doing.
