New York City resident and Battery Park native, Ricky Smith brings a new twist to New York City’s underground music scene. During the peak of NYC’s “Drill Era”,  Ricky Smith delivers “songs from the heart” and promotes a new sense of musical freedom to the city.

As a Dominican, Puerto Rican and black New Yorker, New York’s rap culture has influenced Ricky Smith’s sound. Ricky’s goal is to “inspire transformation and allow a safe space” for music.

Ricky Smith may be the next face of NYC’s pop scene.
