Therefore, when we took a listen to his single “No Mo Basic”, we just knew we’d have this opportunity to brag! Rico… is an artist like no other. “No Mo Basic” had this classic production and element to the beat while maintaining a contemporary swag. The melody in the beat gave me memories of classic feel-good music from my childhood. Therefore, the beat alone gives you a radiating positive feeling. Rico... delivery style is laid-back with minimal pressure. It’s wavy and trendy, but he showcases it on a classic-like beat. The beat was like a mix of R&B and Hip-hop. In fact, It sounded like a soft version of trip-hop. The beat was very ambient and the tempo was a nice slowdown rhythm. This transporting single took us back in time and it’s a refreshing feeling of chills you receive from listening. Rico… is a creative genius.
