Nouveau Riche was a Philadelphia based music group[1] led by Dice Raw and Nikki Jean.[2]

An EP was released in 2008, called the Nouveau Riche Longtail EP, downloadable for free on the group's official Myspace page, and has managed to obtain considerable success all over the Internet.[3]

The band was also nominated for the 2007 Okayplayer Music Awards in the Rookie of the Year Category but lost to Gym Class Heroes.[4]

After releasing a second EP for free through their Myspace page in 2008 which was titled Free Money EP, the band announced that they'd break up and that "Nouveau Riche is no more".
