Rico Nasty: Best Female Rapper Of 2019

No, Rico Nasty is NOT a wrestler.


Nicki Minaj or Cardi B? Neither.

Let's be honest... if you are a female and you want to pursue a rap career you should invest in two things: a ghostwriter and a cosmetic surgeon. Does anyone care about Lil Wayne's waist to hip ratio? Or whether or not Future's braids are real or synthetic? The quick and simple answer is no. For women in the hip-hop industry selling sex appeal seems to be their only choice.

But that's where Rico Nasty differs from the rest (yes, that is her real stage name). Rico sells everything but sex. Relying on substance and talent rather than cheap lines about sex, Rico Nasty raises the bar for women in the rap community in the most refreshing way possible.

The Baltimore based rapper started her career in 2016 with a limited mixtape titled "The Rico Story" which quickly generated a loyal fanbase around her unique sound. With humble beginnings on SoundCloud, her style has been self-dubbed as "sugar trap". Sugar trap can be best described as a blend of alternative-punk and classic trap/drill with an unexpected twist only Rico can provide. This blend of genres (a.k.a "sugar trap") is most apparent on tracks such as "Poppin" and "Sandy".

Aside from Rico's role in developing sugar trap, her success can largely be attributed to her intense vocals and gripping lyrics. In fact with her vocals being so intense her most recent collaboration with producer Kenny Beats was fittingly titled "Anger Management". With an equally charged production, this project matches Rico's contagious energy and flow on point. Therefore, Kenny Beats is basically the Ying to Rico Nasty's Yang. The pair have collaborated in the past beginning with one of Rico's most popular songs "Smack A B***H", which currently almost 17 million views on YouTube.

Instead of being branded as an object, Rico has made a name for herself without the drama or scandals we are so used to. Whether or not you even like this genre of music, there is no doubt that Rico Nasty is changing the standards we set for women in the music industry.

For those who aren't already listening, do yourself a favor and check out Rico's latest release titled "Anger Management" to see for yourself.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
