In honor of LGBT pride month and an attempt to pay homage to the Pulse Victims of Orlando, Jersey City’s own Rico Italy has released his song “Monster”. Featuring a sample from Meg & Dia’s ‘Monster How Should I Feel’, the rapper expresses the hardships of being a member of the LGBT community, the everyday struggles of hetero-normality and trying to make his way through the hip-hop community as well.
Rico has been seen working closely with many producers to take his music to the next level. Unlike most of the rappers today, Italy approaches with a message of perseverance and acceptance. Rico’s new project is scheduled to be released late summer to early autumn. You can find out more about Rico Italy on his YouTube channel or follow him on Instagram here.
