Richard Serrell, better known by his stage name Richie Rich, is a rapper from Oakland, California.

He had a minor hit with his own "Let's Ride" in the early 1990s and performed on the remix version of "I Got 5 On It" by The Luniz. He was an early influence on rapper Snoop Dogg, both in vocal style (having a laid-back, drawling delivery) and in the naming of their groups. Snoop has stated that 213 (consisting of Snoop, Nate Dogg and Warren G) was inspired by Rich's 415, named after Oakland's area code at the time. Oakland would later change to 510 while Long Beach changed first to 310 before eventually becoming 562. Snoop stated: "The reason I formed 213 with Warren G and Nate Dogg is because Richie Rich had a group called 415. I was lovin' his style and voice, which I incorporated into my style when I first started rapping."

Richie Rich was also a good friend of Andre "Mac Dre" Hicks who was gunned down in late 2004. Dre mentions his friendship with Rich as far back as on Dre's second tape released in 1990.

He is also largely known for his work with friend Tupac Shakur. The pair regularly collaborated in the mid-1990s.

Richie Rich is producing the soundtrack for the film "Justus". He is also performing a song for the soundtrack.
