RICO NASTY
IS BOLD.

When one of your most famous lyrical phrases
is “Thank God I ain’t have to smack a bitch
today,” it’s no wonder why Rico Nasty is
regarded as the boldest female rapper on the
planet today.

Earlier this year on Instagram, Rico Nasty told us: “I’m trying this new thing where, like, even if I look ugly, I’m still gonna post a story for ya’ll. Cause I feel beautiful and I don’t care what ya’ll think.” Meet Maria Kelly, given her stage name Rico Nasty by a school bully. Now a full-fledged artist with a record deal and international tours under her belt, Rico is paving the way for her fans to see her as, in her words, “someone who doesn’t give a fuck, but still is nice.” You can feel her unapologetic authenticity in her cartoon-inspired raps like “Hey Arnold” and vicious but playful flow across tracks like “Smack A Bitch.” So, when we say that bold is being brave enough to be your true self, we can’t think of a better living example than Rico Nasty.

SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T GIVE A F*CK, BUT STILL IS NICE
