Rico Nasty and her trademark "Sugar Trap" sound
Nasty is not your average female rapper. Born Maria Kelly,
Rico is coming out of the DMV with her own trademark sound,
"Sugar Trap,” that matches her colorful attitude, fresh style
and outlandishly creative mind. Her first single “iCarly"
received over 920,000 YouTube views in just seven months. She
followed that with "Hey Arnold," a song that got the attention
of fellow next generation superstar Lil Yachty, who jumped on
the remix to the song and from there her profile has steadily
2017 proved to be a landmark year for the rising star with the
release of her two mixtapes Tales of Tacobella (May 2017)
and her most recent follow up Sugar Trap 2 (October 2017)
receiving national recognition from Complex, XXL,
Fader, Noisey and more. The latter features what
some may argue to be her biggest smash yet, “Poppin” - which
can be found on HBO’s hit series Insecure. Rico Nasty
closed the year out with her very first headline tour across
9 cities. Rico Nasty performed in front of 300+ fans each night
with 4 sold out shows in New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and
D.C.! As NOISEY mentioned this “20-year-old is just getting
started”, so stay tuned for more to come!
