Following a series of underground mixtapes and singles, hip-hop emcee Ricky Rude drops his debut “No Guts, No Glory” on Bright Boys Entertainment. The project showcases a bright new talent, a lyricist with clever wordplay and catchy one-liners, with a knack for putting harrowing revelations of a rebellious kid from New Jersey to music.
Guests on “No Guts, No Glory” include hip hop icon Scarface, Trina, Drag-On and more. Production is shared by a list of notables, including grammy nominated producer Cardiak, platinum selling producer Sarom and more.
NGNG is brutally honest, which Ricky says is a vital component to his music. â€œPeople relate to honesty,â€ explains Ricky, â€œbecause itâ€™s through lyrics that fans recognize flaws in themselves.â€ The album’s title track â€œGlory,â€ is about a kid with a dream who can’t be stopped and the rebel who girls can’t resist.
Sexy Miami rapper Trina joins Ricky Rude for the first single “Stripper Ass, Model Face.” They’re chemistry on the record and in the music video is undeniable. The single has already generated a buzz in clubs and on radio, and has instantly become a fan favorite.
Legendary rapper Scarface makes an appearance on â€œSo Immature,” where the two emcees trade stories of the love, heartbreak and addiction. â€œScarface is a hip-hop icon,â€ explains Ricky, who said a mutual friend introduced them, â€œso to work with him was an honor.â€
