Riky Rick Stay Shining album review

Riky Rick on Friday dropped the highly anticipated Stay Shining project.

This is the first full body of work the rapper has released since Family Values, his debut album. The eight-track project sees Riky Rick showcasing his artistic maturity as he transcends a few genres to solidify his signature sound with confidence and authentic flavour.

Riky Rick Stay Shining EP Review

In between the records, Riky Rick’s career has evolved a great deal. Much like A$AP Rocky, the trajectory of his creative growth has been unpredictable, wherein both cases fashion became a central force in their work.

With Family Values, there was the element of freshness and curiosity about the rapper, who had positioned himself so uniquely even at the beginning.  He had crowds eating from the palm of his hands whenever he took to the stage to perform a bunch of smash bops that he had unveiled – with great success – in quick succession.

Stay Shining is short and sweet, with an impressive precision that has allowed King Kotini to collate only the best pieces for this cohesive, varied and confident EP.  As a result, the record is potent. We loved every single song.

He assembled the talents of Davido, Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C, Tshego, Gemini Major, A -Reece, Major League DJs, YoungstaCPT, Frank Casino, Kly, Da L.E.S , Stilo Magolide and J Molley.
