On the heels of the viral sensation, “Hold Me Down,” Ricky Rude has once again teamed up with Philly’s most notorious hustler, AR-AB, for the melodic jam, “Friday The 13th,” which will be found on Ricky’s forthcoming mixtape, “The Unprofessional Professional.” Ricky sprints through the track, proving it’s his “season to ball” before AR grabs the mic to close out the track. AR has long endorsed Ricky for his tenacity and work ethic and can be seen doing so in a viral video that recently hit the web (http://bit.ly/12idpCz). A music video is set to accompany the track later this month, the bulk of which was filmed before AR-AB’s recent incarceration.
For those who aren’t up-to-speed, Ricky Rude is a Southern New Jersey lyricist whose style is as eclectic as his musical influences, which range from The Fugees to Nirvana. Ricky has spent his adolescence developing a buzz within the industry, transplanting himself in the inner-city of Compton, California, where he formed bonds with several West Coast artists. After years of relentless grinding, Ricky found himself back on the East Coast where he is currently putting the finishing touches on his mixtape, “The Unprofessional Professional.” Ricky’s forthcoming album, “No Guts, No Glory,” will feature guest appearances from from Scarface, AR-AB, Liz Rodriguez, and production from Cardiak and Cool & Dre.
