It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Rico Messiah but just because we haven’t heard from him, it doesn’t mean he’s not working. Rico has been focused for the past few months working on his new EP. With no features and mostly self produced, the project is destined to be dope AF! We got a chance to sit down and chop it up with Rico and talk more about the project. Check it out below:
How have things been with you?
I’ve been cool. Maintaining. Last year was trying to say the least. I learned so much about myself more than any other year on this earth.
What have you been working on?
I’ve been working on me. I’ve been working on getting everything I’ve ever wanted. Working to be the best, not only artist, but person I can be. Working on everything attached to me. Working on my personal relationships. Working on my health. Most importantly I’ve been working on being transparent and building creatively as an artist. I’m trying to be omni-present, I want to be like Michael Jordan with this rap shit. Not only was he nice with the offense he had nine defensive first team awards. He had influence. He changed the game. Well that’s what I inspire to do with my music. Not only can I rap, I can write a song, a crazy hook, and I can produce it.
Your ep drops March 9th, what can we expect from it?
You can expect this project to give your insight into my thoughts over the last few months. It’s my own personal diary. Also, you can expect some original organic sounds. I also will be dropping some freestyles that day.
Who are the producers on the project?
I produced most of the tracks on the EP. There is a bonus track on the EP with one of my favorite production teams. Like I said before it’s a very personal project. Didn’t know if I would even drop it.
What is your most meaningful song? And why?
I wouldn’t say one song is more meaningful than the other. Each song on the EP holds a special place in my heart. They are like children I don’t love one more than the other. They are all meaningful in their own way.
What kind of vibe does it give?
I wouldn’t say that it has a vibe. I would say that the EP has an influence. It has a lot of hidden truths inside of the lyrics. This is something that will make you think. Eclectic rap but relatable.
Do you think it’s your best work?
It will be my best work until I drop something else.
How long have you been working on it?
There is a remastered beat from three years back on the EP. But I would say 4 months for what all is dropping that day.
Not on this project. There will be plenty on the following projects. Just a production feature.
Anything else you want to mention?
