Rich Dollaz is the ultimate OG of Love & Hip Hop, and the perfect individual to be celebrated with the first ever Mona Lifetime Achievement Award.
Rich has been here since the beginning of franchise, brought on initially as Olivia’s long-suffering manager who was brought to tears by her raw talent and his desire to see her succeed. He endured a lot in that very first season, pushing Liv’s career forward and beefing with the likes of Somaya Reece and her manager Maurice (’memba him?).
Richard Trowers’ resumè was already poppin’, ever since his start at Bad Boy records. He aided in debuting Cassie’s classic “Me & U,” worked with friend Ryan Leslie on “Diamond Girl,” and how could anyone forget “Show Stopper” by the Making the Band-birthed group Danity Kane?
Since that first season, Rich evolved from peripheral player to leader of the creep squad, allowing us to peek in on his relationships with Erica Mena, Moniece Slaughter, Anais Martinez, and many others. In addition, he’s allowed us to meet his mother, his exes, and his daughter Ashley along the way and let us in on some of his most intimate health issues.
Please give a round of applause to the 2018 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Mona Award, Rich Dollaz and hear his acceptance speech above!
