Ricca Razor Sharp is a thinking man’s MC, delivering rhymes that are honest and insightful, yet entertaining, clever and witty. His debut album, ’12 Steps to a Deffer You’, available now on Neferiu Records, has been embraced by the press, college radio, and both mainstream and underground hip-hop audiences. With a host of different styles, Ricca keeps the listener enthralled, whether rhyming on disc, or commanding the stage.
Ricca grasp of the MC position results from 7 years of performances, and nearly 2 decades of interest in hip-hop music. Those familiar with Ricca's stagemanship, delivery, non-posturing attitude, and slick rhyming abilities were delighted by this 12-track CD, produced by the Mantrakid.
Although this represents Ricca's solo debut, he’s well known for fronting Phattoe, an alt rock/hip-hop/funk act that released 2 albums during their 4 year tenure; 'Phoot in da Doe' (2003) and 'So Good' (2004), both of which were supported by Canadian Tours.
One of Calgary's most highly regarded freestylers, Ricca has won many high profile rap battles including Eliminator 2004, and the Ill Movements V8Less Urban Stakes is High Battle, the latter of which earned him a spot on a nationally distributed Universal Urban compilation.
Says Ricca of his new album: "I feel that '12 Steps to a Deffer You' is a great reflection of my styles, tastes and interests as an artist. Mantrakid has served up a tasty dish of beats, fusing old school and new, often experimental, yet always instantly catchy, and I have responded with an album that I can be proud of, mixing deep thoughts, party jams, and a little bit of sex, drugs and rock n roll."
Ricca Razor Sharp can be found on stage, performing material as a solo artist, or as a member of the Audible Intelligence MC crew in Calgary, AB
