Rickie B.'s Bio

Originally born in Southern California in '93, Rickie Darnell Bailey II (A.K.A. Rickie B.) was raised in North Las Vegas, Nevada.  Primarily a rapper, Rickie B. is also a skilled  music producer, singer, songwriter and engineer.  His style (although largely considered Hip Hop), is labeled Smooth Hip Hop, due to Rickie B's flow pattern and his lyrical wit.

Rickie B. was always known to have a good ear for music, but became serious with it at the age of 17.  His interest sparked due to his lack of interest in what the radio had to offer, as well as his goal of being a difference maker in the Hip Hop scene.  In turn, he started producing his own beats and dropped his first mixtape "The Entree" a year later. Due to the response he received from his peers and the acknowledgement he received for not cursing in his music, he dropped another mixtape "The Appetizer" in 2012 and started developing a love for music that continues on today.  

Rickie B's main goal is to be able to change lives through the art of music and to teach people that perseverance always wins.  "When the beat comes on, of course you'll notice that, but really listen to what I'm saying and read between the lines of my music to gain a full understanding," Rickie B. says.  He's also determined to be the best at his craft and to sell out crowds all over the world.  "And When I do, I'll just smile, thank God and say ... You Know I Had To Do It To Em".
