With influences ranging from The Fugees to Nirvana, Ricky Rude is quickly making headway as the troubadour of South Jersey, blending his eclectic tastes into a style all his own. Developing his lyricism though lengthy freestyle sessions and local battles, Ricky quickly gained a buzz in his home state, leading him to work alongside notable producers such Cardiak and Cool & Dre. As a songwriter, Ricky doesn’t hold any punches, crafting songs of ambition and perseverance from an honest perspective, often leaving listeners with a transparent view of the rebel MC’s psyche.
Earlier this month Ricky teamed up with Philly trap star AR-AB for the buzz worthy single “Hold Me Down.” In preparation for the song’s music video, scheduled to drop on March 26th, Ricky has unveiled the video’s trailer. This video which features Ricky, AR-AB and several scantily dressed models will gives viewers a preview of what’s to come.
“No Guts, No Glory” is slated to include features from Scarface, AR-AB, Apollo The Great, and Liz Rodriguez, as well as production from Cardiak, and Cool & Dre.
