How Ferrari Rick Became the Artist He is Today

Published

on

Lasruick Edmead, professionally known as the artist Ferrari Rick grew up in West Tampa. His stage name came from his dream of owning a Ferrari. His first mixtape back when he wasn’t taking rap too seriously was even called “Ferrari Dreamz” as a homage to the said ambition. 

At present, he is making himself known across several platforms such as YouTube and SoundCloud. But before he became the artist he is today, he had to go through a period of self-realization. 

“I switched my rap name plenty of times before I became Ferrari Rick. [It] just felt like that name was the right fit for me, and I’m never changing it again,” he said. 

Ferrari Rick started making music since he was 13-years-old. Now turning 22, the artist has taken rap more seriously than ever before and is grinding every day to get to where he wants to be. 

“I always loved listening to music. I started my career making music from a webcam at home and [then] I started getting interested in taking it seriously,” he said. 

The artist then began going to the studio to work on his music and has kept it going ever since then. 

Becoming a Better Artist 

One thing that Ferrari Rick considers as a success is his becoming a better artist than before. He became better at melodies and became a better rapper than before.

The artist is also proud of being able to expand his craft. 

“I learned [that] you got to stand on what you believe in [and] never give up. I almost quit music in 2018 because I felt like it was getting nowhere [but] then I just kept going and started seeing progress each day,” he said.  

2021 is His Year 

As he turns 22 this year, Ferrari Rick hopes that it’s the year when all of his hard work over the years finally pays off. 

“Most of my projects are on SoundCloud. [There’s] just a bunch of free music there for people to listen to but also I have some of my music on all platforms such as on Apple Music, Spotify, etc.,” Ferrari Rick said.

The artist has also just dropped a recent music video on YouTube and all platforms called “Truth Be Told,” and another video called “Thought I was cursed.” His goal for this year is to increase his following on all platforms so that he can have a larger audience with whom he can share his music.

EDM Maniac: Safe Raving During COVID-19

Published

on

It’s been almost a year since the United States government officially decided to shut down the country to mitigate the rising coronavirus cases. Limiting activities down to only the essentials may have been great for our country’s health, but the benefits did not always translate well for businesses. If a company wanted to survive through the pandemic, they had to learn to adjust to this new world. Despite the fears and challenges that came with it, EDM Maniac, the premier source for all things EDM, was able to quickly find new ways to continue to serve their passionate fans through drive-in, socially-distanced, and virtual concerts. 


Today, EDM Maniac is primarily known as a digital publication, but their history is rooted in hosting live, in-person events. When EDM Maniac’s founder, Devin Lezama first moved to Los Angeles, he recognized the need for a space where the EDM community could unite. To fill the gap and pursue his passion, he started throwing underground raves, which eventually evolved into the sophisticated brand we know today. Understandably, hearing that the country was shutting down met him with lots of uncertainty and fear. 

“When I first got the news that the country was shutting down, I immediately freaked out because I knew live events would be one of the first things to go,” explains Lezama. “The majority of our brand is centred around our shows and events. It’s pretty much a part of the EDM Maniac’s DNA.”

Having a massive component of their business model challenged was not easy, and for a few weeks, they wrestled with the idea of throwing in the towel altogether. However, less than three months later, they were ready to hit the ground running again with some new, fresh, and safe ideas.   

In June 2020, EDM Maniac traveled to San Antonio, Texas to help promote and market a series of drive-in EDM concerts to allow fans the opportunity to safely enjoy their favorite DJ’s whilst remaining in their cars. With Covid regulations progressively loosening up, in October 2020, EDM Maniac decided it was the perfect time to finally start hosting live events again. In partnership with M3ATX, every Friday and Saturday they host CDC compliant events at The Venue ATX located in Austin, Texas. These parties give Austin EDM lovers a weekly opportunity to gather in a nightclub atmosphere and make up for lost times. 

Though EDM Maniac enjoys great music and uniting the community, health is the top priority at all of their events. “We take Covid regulations and the health of our community very seriously,” says Lezama. “At each event, we have a staff of security walking around to make sure attendees are always following CDC guidelines when it comes to social distancing and mask-wearing.”

For those who are still unable to make it to the live events, be it for geographical or health reasons, EDM Maniac continues to think of new ways to please their audiences. In their recent partnership with Insomniac TV, EDM Maniac will be delivering an immersive virtual concert experience every Thursday on tv.insomniac.com from 10 pm to 12 am PT from February 25th through April 8th. This gives fans the opportunity to party from the comfort and safety of their homes.

The coronavirus may have forever changed how live events are conducted and experienced, but EDM Maniac refuses to let this stop them. By continuously coming up with new ways to rave, they make sure the EDM community remains entertained and united, regardless of what life throws at them.
