The DMV rapper fostered a heavy online following of young fans with her “sugar trap” sound and cartoon emboldened street rap. While in Los Angeles working on her forthcoming LP, Nasty, Rico paid a visit to host Fox as they both recover from Beychella.

On her personal penchant for older women in hip-hop, Rico says, “I like the older female rappers, because I feel like back then, how nerveracking it must’ve been to get in a booth with these strong, real gangsta ass niggas. Nowadays, niggas is not gangsta,” she says. “I just loved the way they sounded back then. It was so powerful.”

When asked about raising a child while rapping and the stigma placed on women in entertainment balancing careers and motherhood she said, “People have been having kids since the beginning of time. You have the baby, you get back to your life. Some women don’t. Some women can’t. It’s all in who you are. I feel like people put so much pressure on pregnant women. This person is carrying life. Chill the fuck out, bro.”
