Guh Hawd Productions recording artiste, Ricky Frass,has released a new single called Suitcase, where he makes an earnest wish to escape the desperate poverty that has defined his life in the tough neighbourhood of Frankfield in Clarendon.
"This song is just about the livity that poor people ah face in Jamaica right now, this ah represent for every ghetto youth who wants better days and ah try hold it. Mi ah try give them hope that all is not lost, especially where I come from in Frankfield, too much ah mi friends dem dead or deh a jail; it's really hard," Ricky Frass said.
Suitcase is one of the lead singles from his first EP for Guh Hawd Productions, which will be released in the first quarter of this year.
Last year, RickyFrassgenerated a lot of attention with the bouncy track She Like Me, which got a lot of spins on HITZ FM. The single's popularity has been boosted by the release of a video which is now in regular rotation on CVM, HYPE, RE and E Plus. He has also done interviews on FIWI Choice and on Suzie Q's Video Alley, so his media visibility is at an all-time high.
"All baby pon breasts ah sing the song word fi word now, so mi know it shot,"RickyFrasssaid, laughing.
RickyFrassis known for his energetic flows and is a beast on the microphone at community events in May Pen, where he is already a local legend. The artiste first gained recognition with the popular single Tired, on the 'Big Dog rhythm' in 2012, and he has emerged as an artiste who is more than just a two-dimensional character singing about girls, guns and weed.
