Rick Smoove is a hip-hop musician and composer from the United States of America. He is originally from Springfield, Massachusetts.
instead of going the standard way and trying to appease the people that listen to popular trap music, Rick Smoove has evolved his own unique musical style, which combines lyrical substance and direction with powerful trap rhythms in the manner of trap music.
Rick’s enormous physical skills prevented him from ever focusing his attention properly on his early interests in music and poetry, despite the fact that he had a passion for both from a young age.
His long-dormant interest in music was rekindled by a close friend when he was attending Sacred Heart University on a football scholarship. In the years that followed, Rick honed his signature approach to writing by drawing upon his talent for imaginative expression and his enthusiasm for creating poetry.
When someone hears Rick Smoove’s music for the first time, the term “distinct” is often the first thing that comes to mind in their mind. The mix of Rick’s raspy and straightforward delivery, his clever and intelligent punchlines, and his high-pitched melodic vocals position him on the spectrum somewhere between the likes of Meek Mill and Childish Gambino. Rick’s delivery may be described as being “straightforward”.
While everyone was cooped up indoors due to the pandemic, he came to the strategic conclusion that he should place a greater emphasis on my creative abilities. As a direct consequence of this, he was able to produce the finest music of his career.
It is a cultivation of his progress as an artist as well as his determination to continually make music that is eternal, sustainable, and of high quality. Lost is an example of this. You are quickly drawn in by the Pop Rap, Lo-Fi, and romantic aspects of the song, and your attention is held throughout the course of the song due to these elements.
During the course of a short conversation, he discussed his musical career, aims, and aspirations, in addition to shedding some further light on his most recent effort.

I feel I have a very eclectic sound. My music is a mix of conscious rap, pop-rap, hip hop, R&B, Pop, & Rap. From an artist standpoint, think of a mix between Childish Gambino, Meek Mill, and Wale.

My current single “Lost” is a song that I’ve been waiting to release for two years.

With Covid slowing down I was able to create some amazing visuals that really capture the essence and story of the song.
