London Hip Hop artist Ricko Debut Album ‘The Slick Rick’ LP Is available Now! Bursting onto the Hip Hop music scene in recent years with a slew of appearances on acclaimed underground mixtapes, London’s promising star Ricko delivers an impactful debut album, ‘The Slick Rick LP’, with features from Guilty Simpson, Emmavie, and more. The album is now available on all major platforms including Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon.
A unique musical experience deeply rooted in a vintage RnB and Soul, ‘The Slick Rick’ LP, has a golden era sound laden with snappy boom-bap drums and smooth flows, coupled with ambient melodies and organic instrumentation.
With veteran like delivery, Ricko paints pictures of his humble beginnings and the struggles of growing up in a broken home while surviving in the streets of London. Themed after the story of the legendary UK born Slick Rick, who is best known for his unique style of storytelling in early Hip Hop, Ricko reveals his personal story in an autobiographical and movie like fashion. With soulful and instrumentally rich production at the foundation of the album, Ricko is able to show out lyrically, and deliver gorgeous hooks throughout the project to polish off this unforgettable debut album.
