Biography

RKZ (pronounced ‘Ricks’) is a 22 year-old musician from Luton, England. He began his career in 2009 as a rapper, influenced by Hip-Hop from the late ‘90s and early ‘00s. As his career developed, he began focusing on vocal delivery and range, and is now recognised for his singing and song-writing abilities.

In 2009, RKZ released his debut single Renegades featuring popular Asian rapper, Raxstar, and the song received consistent airplay on BBC Asian Network.

The 2010 release of mixtape Dark Night of the Soul catalysed RKZ’ career, with several songs around that era receiving consistent airplay across the entire BBC platform - culminating in a strong underground following. The rich production, arrangement and delivery in his single, How Are You in particular, stood out as a fan’s favourite. Since then, he has gone onto release several mixtapes, EPs and singles (see discography, below). Wander/Lust, the two-part record (released February 2013) showcased RKZ’ transition from rapper to singer, and the title played on the name of his forthcoming R&B album, Wanderlust.

RKZ is currently working on an as yet untitled 2013 EP and mixtape, as well as Wanderlust, with executive producer Gifted The Great. The album is currently scheduled for a 2014 release.

Philanthropy & Additional Work

In 2012, RKZ was announced as Ambassador for CALM: the Campaign Against Living Miserably.
