On January 6, 2013, the song "Rich As Fuck," featuring rapper 2 Chainz leaked unmastered and was originally set to be the third single from I Am Not a Human Being II, but "Love Me" was released as a single instead. "Rich As Fuck" was released as the first promotional single from the album along with the pre-order of the album via the iTunes Store. The official version of the song was remastered and the first and second verse were switched around, compared to the leaked version.
"Rich As Fuck" was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. David Jefferies called the song "a winner with an enticing and eerie beat from T-Minus."Jody Rosen of Rolling Stone praised Lil Wayne's lyricism on the song and his "nimble musicality of his vocal tone and flow." Dean Van Nguyen of PopMatters said the "creeping funk beat on "Rich As Fuck" inspire Wayne to one of his sharpest flows on the album." Jon Hadusek of Consequence of Sound said the song had an old-school feel, and called the song I Am Not a Human Being's "finest moment." Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called 2 Chainz appearance on the song impressive. Brandon Soderberg of Spin also praised 2 Chainz for having a "charismatic presence on the song." Jayson Greene of Pitchfork Media said the Bay Area-influenced clap instrumental of the song work around him, not with him.
Complex ranked "Rich As Fuck" number 18 on their list of the 50 best songs of 2013, saying "The song might not push the limits of art, but when this comes on at the right time, it's the jam, and unlike a lot of the other big hits of the year, it didn't get played out."
The music video was directed by Parris in early 2013, and was released on March 22, 2013 on MTV. The video was released on YouTube through his VEVO one day later, on March 23, 2013. The video is age-limited and need verification for viewing.
