Richard Terfry (born March 4, 1972), better known by his stage name Buck 65, is an alternative hip hop artist from Mt. Uniacke, Nova Scotia. Underpinned by an extensive background in abstract hip hop, his more recent music has extensively incorporated blues, country, rock, folk and avant-garde influences.  In 1993, he released his first cassette of rap tunes while performing under the alias Stinkin’ Rich on the Halifax label No Records.  Buck 65 has used a number of other stage names including Johnny Rockwell, Stinkin’ Rich, Haslam, and Uncle Climax.
