Fans of Rico Nasty are used to her pushing the boundaries of any genre she chooses. Whether it be hardcore rapping or R&B singing, the DC-based emcee performs beautifully with every sound she attempts.
Sharing her latest album Las Ruinas last month, the album’s latest single “Gotsta Get Paid” is as off-kilter as they come — placing Rico’s aggressive delivery over an instrumental made up of eerie pianos, atmospheric siren synths and Looney Tunes sound effects.
“Cause I gotta pay for my baby tuitionRico Nasty — “Gotsta Get Paid”
Always believin’ in my intuition
If you want issues, we grant you your wishes
I’m in the Hills, but I came from the trenches
Rockin’ a trench coat
Ready to go, who want it? Come get smoke”
Rico goes from fiery forests to arctic tundras as she spits vicious bars and intimidates her competition in the Moshpxt-produced visual. Rico is still basking in the success of Las Ruinas, putting an end to her two-year album hiatus with the 17-track project — coming complete with features from Bktherula, Teezo Touchdown, Marshmello
Additional collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, Flo Milli, Doechii, Denzel Curry and more have added to a long discography of high-quality and experimental music as she enters the next phase of her career. Her ability to match any artist’s energy has proven unstoppable on her journey to the peak of her craft, working with some of our generation’s most talented artists in the process.
With her recent project still fresh in the minds of her listeners, Rico is clearly still in grind mode as she continues to outdo herself with every following release.
