Ricky Rude f/ AR-AB ‘Hold Me Down’

Ricky Rude f/ AR-AB ‘Hold Me Down’
Salad Days

With influences ranging from The Fugees to Nirvana, Ricky Rude is quickly making headway as the troubadour of South Jersey, blending his eclectic tastes into a style all his own.

Developing his lyricism though lengthy freestyle sessions and local battles, Ricky quickly gained a buzz in his home state, leading him to work alongside notable producers such Cardiak and Cool & Dre. As a songwriter, Ricky doesn’t hold any punches, crafting songs of ambition and perseverance from an honest perspective, often leaving listeners with a transparent view of the rebel MC’s psyche. Ricky Rude has teamed up with Philly trap star AR-AB for his latest single ‘Hold Me Down’ which is the first single from Ricky’s debut album ‘No Guts, No Glory’ due out later this year via Bright Boys Entertainment. The track features dark and impactful production from White Mike of Genius Republic, as Ricky and AR-AB trade verses of intense braggadocio. ‘Hold Me Down’ will be accompanied by a music video, set to drop later this month. ‘No Guts, No Glory’ is slated to include features from Scarface, AR-AB, Apollo The Great, and Liz Rodriguez, as well as production from Cardiak, DJ Khalil, and Cool & Dre. ‘Hold Me Down’ will be available for purchase on iTunes on March 26th.
