Biography

Apex Hills, United States (2007 – present)

Apex Hills, United States 2007

Rick Villa (b. September 15, 1986) in Apex Hills, Hollywood, Florida is an American hip-hop artist, singer and songwriter, Artist and designer. A student of music appreciation & history, he’s a multi-instumentalist.

He melds his own understanding of Southern Hip Hop culture with the growing changes of Music. Rick, as well his production team, sample vintage loops blended with futuristic bass, drums and 80’s concert music themes w/ occasional R&B-fused hooks. [enter: i.e Kanye West].

These sounds cross many palettes of music across the board and produce what you hear with a depth you’ll appreciate.
He effortlessly melds a fusion of imagery, lyricism and southern swagger. He burst out to the mainstream hip-hop culture in late 2007 after dropping the Ill Kutz Vol. 1 Mixtape with his former rap group consisting of his brother Jay Yahel Sainvil ( Jay-Blaze ).

Some breath’s of fresh air loved are Your My Misses and Indian Girl. One of the Real gems on the Ill Kutz is Dead Presidents Part 3 (HardHitta) Rep_L, where GhraphiXxX delivers a dark sample of the streets that embodied memories of Fort Lauderdale, New York and Baltimore. His rendition of the timeless classic primarily set by Nas then sampled by Jay-Z is done arguably fantastically. A captivating voice.
E.M.I.R Music Recordings released the EP after a signing. He has recently left that label and is set to release his third mixtape “The Fantastic Sovereign” in 2010. And Will feature his own style, reminiscent of Lupe Fiasco, Andre 3000, Kanye West and Young Jeezy.

    sorry to bug you but i would really like to ask you something, i would like to ask you to take a quick listen to few of my songs and tell me what you really think about no holds barred because im thinking about making a mini demo and sending to a few indie type labels like stones throw, so i would like a bit of feedback from people who really have a good ear for good music and bad music.Also i would like to point out that this is not spam i have taken the time out to find people who dont just listen to mainstream music and to futher prove my point the time in the UK right now is none of the works i've uploaded have been mastered or finished i would just like to find out weather its just me liking this type of sound or if there's other heads diggin it. feel free to say if you dont like it, it would be great if you could say why, if not thats cool. http://www.last.fm/music/Machiko+Oneida/+albums one

    I'll never be a fan of him, and he's not popular if he was popular he would have alot more than 18,000 plays and what do you mean you won't even entertain that attempted first sentence?

    Just because he has 5000 listens on his library doesn't mean he can't judge crap music like this + "RippedtGhraphiX" fail? seriously how is that a fail saying the base is louder than his voice because it is?

    "Jam Tonight". .. What I dont get "paull125" is that the comment you made wasn't even constructive, you dont think we hear all that. you the only one in the world with ears? And you can tell that it was a personal digg. I think if your hatin' you should put music out there buddy. Now stop commenting, stop FAILING!!!
