Rico Nasty ended last year off with the undeniable “Hard” featuring production from Take A Daytrip and music video direction from the Reel Goats. The track mirrored the uptempo aggression that put Kenny Beats and her Anger Management on the map and earned the project a place on The Absolute, Definitive and Correct 25 Best Music Project of 2019 (So Far). Now Rico returns with a recurring mantra in both her life and music with “IDGAF”.
Her first single of 2020 mirrors themes heard throughout Anger Management, but the instrumental, produced by Rico’s official tour deejay DJ Miles takes a u-turn into the sublime with dreamlike fluttering keys contrasted by hard-hitting bass. Rico showcases her vocal chops too with a smooth and addicting melody proclaiming that she just doesn’t give a f*ck. It’s a 2020 resolution by many, and could serve as a theme song heading into the year for those wishing to copy Rico’s overall outlook on life.
“I pull up and hop out the Mercedes/ Sh*t I used to daydream/ I’m running it up on the daily/ You ain’t on sh*t, you lazy/ Don’t give a sh*t, f*ck you b*tch, pay me/ Smoke so much my vision hazy.” Rico declares on the first verse. “All my bitches got the ball, you the monkey in the middle/ You hoes too small, you b*tch too little/ You n*ggas rats, Stuart Little/ I went and got me some racks, now my pockets bigger.”
