Rico continued posting freestyles before he released “Strong”. Strong is a tear jerking heartfelt record dedicated to single mothers and produced by his childhood friend, Jmac in late 2016. He went on to team up with super producer Pretty Boi Beats which then led to recording the song, “Gangsta” in June 2017. The song gained a great amount of recognition and effectively planted his foundation to his newly established music career. In the year of 2018 Rico released his first studio album called, “The Real Story” which featured, “She Tired” with Tokyo Jetz and Ally Cocaine, “Average” with Dave Hollister and an upbeat hype song “Fire” with Bay area legend Mistah F.A.B and Young Goat “Nef The Pharaoh”.

Rico is set to release his new song “Gangsta” featuring Boosie Badazz and is sure to be a summer banger! 

He started his music career back in highschool winning talent shows and performing at parties. He learned to be a great performer and artist in that way. He gained many fans and followers from his music but also from his interactions with his daughter online. He used to sing songs and braid her hair and posted those videos to his page and they would just go viral. It was a win/win for him; people would come on to his page and see his interactions with his daughter and then go onto checking his music out. He shows his audience who he is as a person as he does as an artist which is, a humble loving father proud of those he cares about and a creative motivated artist. 

Being the humble ambitious person he is he has learned and understands that there is healing through music. He has learned that not everybody is genuine but also knows that not everyone is out to get you. Rico Freeman states, “You have to use judgement. What you put into it is what you get out of it, maybe not initially but stick to it and everything will fall into place”. He wants anyone following his career path to know that they should do what makes them happy. Never drain yourself and keep going after what you’re passionate about. Never give up, unless your heart is no longer in it and you just feel like you have nothing else to give. Even then come back to it which is what has happened to him. He got discouraged but came back harder than he left, all in all keep going. 

Check out Rico Freeman and all he has to offer and again look out for his second studio album “The Real Story Pt. 2”.

Giles’ Debut Single “Alive” Is a Multi-Genre Anthem Which Celebrates the Will to Survive

Published

on

Giles is one of the most fully developed artists debuting in 2022, with a multi-genre sound grown from his appreciation for all types of music. He incorporates a wide range of influences from other genres into his home genre of hip-hop, creating anthems which empower people to overcome the current problems in their lives.

His appreciation for music blossomed during his college years, where he had learned to think of music as a series of moods and styles structured like vocabularies and grammars. He learned of the ways musical devices from a multitude of genres affect people, learning to sculpt soundscapes which take listeners from one state of mind to another.

He says, “I have an affinity for putting music together from a theoretical perspective. I am open minded to all genres, and I am aware of the rich sonic possibilities that occur in the relationships between melody and harmony. At the same time, I stay sharp. I love the history of society, culture, and art.”

He understands that music holds a special power in people’s lives, able to change the ways they see the world. When crafted well, music can better the experience of life by reframing how people see their everyday life. 

Thus, in a world affected by pandemic, conflict, and inequality, Giles makes music for the people. He makes what people need. His music aims to reorient others from the disorientation of our times, serving as hip-hop pep-talks that celebrate those who are surviving and overcoming the 2020s.

His first single “Alive” manifests this mission, released on March 11, 2022.

His current mastery of music took over decades of work to develop. Before he picked up his current moniker, Giles began his career under the alias Vthov, releasing mixtapes such as Books over Bullets and Amongst the Stars

Along the way, Giles befriended the artist Cody ChesnuTT, becoming the music director and pianist for his band. Through repeated run-ins between Cody and John Legend, Giles was invited by John and Cody to work on the 12 Years a Slave soundtrack. In his work as a performer, Giles has opened for legends such as Stevie Wonder, Nas, and Bryan Adams.

Through his direct work with music’s greats, Giles has amassed a large collection of sounds he loves. His awareness of how each of these sounds work in a variety of contexts afford him an expanded sound palette and sophistication. His deep intentionality allows for him to carefully weave influences together like patches on a quilt.

The change of name from Vthov to Giles signals a change in himself – that he is now at a point of proficiency, growth, and comfort. He has full creative control of the worlds he wishes to build.

He expands, “At the same time, Giles is my family name. I’m proud of it. I am representing my ancestors, family, and my values with it.”

“Alive” is a single that brings together influences from rock, blues, and soul, and even adult contemporary, deep house, and synth funk. United by the musical grammar of hip-hop, “Alive” carries many feelings at once – angst, euphoria, doubt, joy – arranged in layers like a building.

The lyrics are half in song and in rap, almost like those of Cee-Lo, Drake, or Logic. The chorus incorporates power chords from rock music, creating sparkling anthemic and celebratory peaks. Giles creates a sense of tension and relief by moving between the genres of hip-hop and rock.  

Giles originally wrote the song for himself, worried about his time away from the spotlight. “It was terrible. I felt like my dream was dying,” he says. He reflected on what was lost in recent times: willpower, opportunities, money; realizing that he was in a state of survival.

By looking out at the world, he realized something. “I had realized that the COVID-19 pandemic was one of the first times in contemporary history where everyone around the globe is united in survival. We should recognize that we are all survivors. That was the aim of ‘Alive’,” he says.

The song’s wide sound palette allows for it to move across context. 

Giles decided to release the song in response to the current events in Ukraine, inspired by the will displayed by its citizens. Upon realizing that his pep-talk to crisis might resonate with the experience of those in crisis more broadly, Giles felt the need to release “Alive” as a form of commentary.

Now, Giles is hard at work on more music. 

This summer, Giles will release “Grinders and Hustlers”, a hood anthem dedicated to everyone who helps keep society running in times of crisis. The track celebrates unrecognized work, empowering listeners to see themselves as valuable. In the fall he intends to follow that up with “Oscar Worthy” which builds upon the adage “Life is a movie” challenging us to make our movies Oscar worthy!
