EP Review: Bad – Ricco Barrino

When I came across RICCO BARRINO‘s EP, ‘Bad’, I had to sit up, take note and give it a trial. If the surname brings a bell, well this R&B powerhouse is the older brother of Americana Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino and although he appeared on her single, ‘Bore Me (Yawn)’, he’s definitely a star on his own right.

Ricco has consistently been in and out of the spotlight since the early 2000s, lending his vocals to T.I.’s chart-topping single, ‘Whatever You Like’ and Colonel Loud’s hit ‘California’. A former signee of T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, Ricco has been hard at work on new music since his peak in 2015, landing records with Blacc Zacc, Da Baby, and other A-listers.

Ricco has now released a collection of these records, including those that were previously unreleased, across a series of new EPs via Common Cents/EMPIRE. Serving as a follow-up to ‘Good’ EP, released earlier this month, ‘Bad’ EP, the second installment in the series, which contains the new catchy single ‘Quavo’ as well as other previously unreleased music.

Roaring guitar riffs introduces the five piece set with track, ‘Give It To You’, leading to an uptempo summery drive, working in perfect harmony with Ricco’s robustly soulful vocals…and that vocal performance is turned up a notch or two through second funked-up, soulful effort ‘Fire’.

Changing the tone of the project, comes ‘Nothing I Would Not Do’, which brings in an intimate setting of vibrantly airy vibes later joined by rhythmic claps…and of course that vocals provided by Ricco, where he delicately shows off his falsetto range.

Flaring up to an emotional state, Ricco’s voice takes centre stage in the final atmospheric track, ‘Pray For Me’, which is guaranteed to leave any prospective listener quenching for more…

It’s a good job there’s more as BAD EP, will be quickly followed by Ricco’s third and final installment – Ugly EP – coming out 3rd September – now, that’s going to be pure FIRE! Pre-save your copy here:

Jiaani Taps Rich Homie Quan For ‘Lost Faith’ Video

With his debut album (‘10,000 Hours’) amassing over a million streams from January 2019, and three new loose singles already under his belt since the fourth quarter of last year, JIAANI (pictured right in the above photo) keeps the momentum going with the Terrius Mykel-directed music video for his new Buckroll-produced single ‘Lost Faith’, featuring Rich Homie Quan.

Speaking of his track and video, Jiaani says: ” ‘Lost Faith’ was really a reminder to myself to stay focused, at the time everything around me was changing. I was making more money but I had toxic relationships that I had to shed, and it was basically my rebirth. At the time, Rich Homie Quan was going through similar things with the label situation and in his personal life, so once we chopped it up and built a friendship, it just flowed, and Terrius Mykel really captured my vision for it with the video. Life is an opportunity everyday. We all take losses, but work ethic and a strong mindset will build you.”

The North Carolina emcee started out under the guidance of rapper 9th Wonder and went on to collaborate with the likes of Freeway, Fred The Godson, and Gillie Da Kid.

This guy has impeccable flow and some fire wordplay. Check him out below…
