In The Lab With Ricky

Im starting a new series of Beat making videos I call “In The Lab With Ricky” I go through the basic steps on how to create a beat. I sample and create feel good Boom Bap music. So sit back relax and enjoy episode 1.


The Beast (Video Premire)

Check out my video for my track ‪#‎TheBeast‬. I get a bit political here but to me its just spitting the truth. Agree or disagree Im going to do and say what I fee I have to say and thas why I will never sign to a Label. Its all about artistic freedom for me.

They go after the weak , those who can’t speak
And have nothing to eat
But somehow carry heat under the heat” –Ricky Balboa Tha Slk1


Good evening everyone….I’ve been busy in the lab working on a project I call #ANTIPSYCHOTIC. It’s something I have been working on for the last few months. I’m writing , producing , mixing and mastering the project myself so I don’t have a release date yet. Here’s a teaser to get things started and I plan dropping the first single this summer. So stay tune for more info so stay locked.

Lifes A Bitch 2016

So I decided to sample Alessia Cara’s smash hit “Here”. I chopped it up and played it over a classic break. Then threw AZ and Nas over the beat.


Jus Bars

Check out my man Nate Ingram. This is the first track I produced for this young hungry emcee from Chi-Town. Spitting nothing but real bars over a soulful beat. Stay tune for more music from this future star.
