About Rico Nasty:
Rico Nasty entered the rap game in 2014 with her first mixtape, SUMMER’S EVE. Since then she’s secured a lane of her own, first by coining the term “Sugar Trap,” which describes the juxtaposition of her music and personality, and then by establishing a cult following via her consistent delivery of relatable music and electrifying live performances.
Named among Forbes’ annual 30 Under 30 2019: Music, a “Ones To Watch” for 2020, and a superhero by her son Cam, Rico Nasty proved one of 2018’s most celebrated artists. She earned a wide range of high profile media attention for her project “Nasty,” including a cover appearance on The FADER‘s annual Summer Music issue and a slew of year-end accolades from Pitchfork to The Washington Post, who ranked her body of work amongst their top 10 favorites of the year.
This trendsetting star wears many hats and we’re thrilled to partner with her for this special family art experience!
