Biography

Richard “Ricky” Jones (born May 13, 1976), better known by his stage names Fiend or International Jones is an American rapper and producer best known for his time spent with Master P‘s No Limit Records. Fiend was also briefly a member of DMX’s label Ruff Ryders Entertainment, and is currently signed to Jet Life Recordings under Warner Bros.

Fiend released his first album, I Won’t Be Denied, in 1995 for independent label Big Boy Records. He would then sign with No Limit in 1997 and appeared on Master P‘s Ghetto D and Mia X‘s Unlady Like before releasing his second album and first for No Limit, There’s One in Every Family in 1998. The album was hugely successful, peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Also in that year, Fiend appeared on Snoop Dogg’s successful single “Woof!”. In 1999, Fiend released his third album, Street Life. The album peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and Fiend left No Limit. In the year 1998 he married Carly Liber who is also known as “Fiend”. They did a duet together called “Fiend for the D.”

Fiend was also a member of the Ruff Ryders and appeared on the crew’s third compilation album, Ryde or Die Vol. 3: In the “R” We Trust, before leaving in 2001. In 2000, Fiend and No Limit labelmate Mr. Serv-On collaborated on Three 6 Mafia‘s song “Touched Wit It,” which lead to Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul And Juicy J to do a group album with Fiend called Dat’s How It Happened To’m. After the album, Fiend started his own label, Fiend Entertainment, and released three more albums, Can I Burn? 2 in 2003, Go Hard or Go Home in 2004, and The Addiction in 2006. All three albums made it to the Billboard charts but failed to gain the success as his No Limit albums. Fiend also produces music, having done production for songs on Jadakiss’ Kiss tha Game Goodbye and former labelmate C-Murder‘s The Truest Shit I Ever Said. He can currently be seen and heard with fellow ex-No Limit rapper Curren$y on the Smokers Club Tour and on various songs. In 2010 he also appeared on Lil Wyte‘s mixtape “Wyte Christmas 2 (Let It Sno)” on the song “House Full Of Guns”.

Fiend also collaborated on two songs from Trick Daddy‘s seventh studio album Back by Thug Demand going by his alias International Jones; “Booty Doo” (also featuring Webbie) and “Lights On”.
