Hailing from the DMV, Rico Nasty has made a cut-throat impression to the rap game with her aggressive energy and strong charisma. Rico began to blow up in mid 2016 off the hype of “Iggady (Remix)”, “iCarly”, and “Hey Arnold”. Her catchy melodic style later caught the attention of Lil Yachty who remixed Hey Arnold and brought her further attention, getting her closer to her goal of being a XXL Freshman. After dropping Sugar Trap 2 in 2017, featuring Chicago upstart Famous Dex, Rico dropped her debut album, Nasty, in 2018. Earning features from BlocBoy JB and Lil Gnar, the album made a splash with off the wall bangers, such as "Countin' Up" and "Rage".
