That "Tre-Fo Boy" from Winston-Salem, "Lil' Rick" a. k. a. "Ricky Ruckus" is no stranger to the rap game. Before the young lyricist was old enough to drink, he collaborated with several chart-topping producers, including Majik, MRell, Shodown, "Oddz N Endz", and Chase Cashe. Lil' Rick, who is fast gaining the reputation as the "best all-around unsigned hip-hop artist in the game", has earned this reputation with an unusual ability to create songs. Ricky Ruckus is currently (2006) being considered as the newest artist to join No Limit or MySpace Records.
"Lil' Rick" a. k. a. "Ricky Ruckus" was born in Washington, DC on September 18, 1983. He moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1996. He earned the name "Lil' Rick" from his father Big Rick, and "Ricky Ruckus" because of his furious rapping method. His masterful mic skills and "in your face" attitude comes from the many battles that this young rapper has faced as a challenger.
Ricky Ruckus became serious about rapping while attending high school. At the same time, DJs took notice and started giving him radio coverage -- DJ's like "DJ Ceasefire" (Shadyville/ 102 Jamz / http://www.102jamz.com/). With the increased radio coverage, came challenges from other rappers, which only helped provoked him to hone his skills even more.
With radio coverage, his name skyrocketed and he became well known in North Carolina and some parts of Virginia. It allowed him to open shows for Jay-Z, 3-6 Mafia, Mike Jones, Slim thug, The Game, Juelz Santana, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, U.T.P, Franchise Boys, Bow WoW and Life (2002-current). His popularity is represented by the spirited response that he receives on MySpace.com. Ricky Ruckus can be found on MySpace.com at http://www.myspace.com/RickyRuckus.
Ricky Ruckus has released several CD's. His latest work is a non-mixtape that is scheduled for release in October 2006. The new release is entitled "Hood Stripes". His previous non-mixtape release, which can be found on every major music website, is entitled "The Streets, My Life". Ricky Ruckus understands how the music business works. He understands that an artist must always have new music in circulation. Ricky Ruckus released several mix tapes, including "Motivation Mixtape: Gangsta Grillz", "Motivation Mixtape: Most Hated", "M.O.N.E.Y", and has been featured on numerous mixtapes. Please refer to the Discography below for a complete listing of his work.
