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. No Guts, No Glory is brutally honest, which Ricky says is a vital component to his music. "People relate to honesty," explains Ricky, "because it's through lyrics that fans recognize flaws in themselves." The album's title track "Glory," 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 "So Immature,' where the two emcees trade stories of the love, heartbreak and addiction. "Scarface is a hip-hop icon," explains Ricky, who said a mutual friend introduced them, "so to work with him was an honor." Born and raised in South Jersey, Ricky spent his youth driving his parents and teachers crazy. After being arrested twice the week of his high school graduation-a ceremony that his family members, doubting his ability to graduate, did not attend-Ricky found within himself a new determination to pursue his dream of making music and making his life significant. In 2012, Ricky decided to leave Jersey for sunny Southern Cali, where he quickly immersed himself in the local music scene. He formed relationships with rappers such as Compton Menace and Glasses Malone and super producer and Dr Dre protégé DJ Khalil. Since returning to the East Coast earlier this year, Ricky has remained in South Jersey, where he has made a name for himself as the breakout star of his town. Ricky's songwriting focuses on passion, truth to life, and enjoying himself in a manner that speaks equally to the hood as it does to the 'burbs.
