Rico made a name for himself in Chicago during the drill music era between 2014 and 2018 with his cult-favorite mixtapes such as his Rico Don’t Shoot Em franchise and countless aggressive and out-of-pocket singles such as “Tooka.” He gained considerable notoriety in 2017 following the release of his Big Recklezz mixtape, which utilizes the likeness of Lil Uzi Vert, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty and Black Youngsta as infant caricatures in a baby crib Rico is tending.

In 2020, Rico teamed up with fellow Chicago rapper I.L Will for their collaborative Flatzz & Gunz 2 mixtape that includes one of the last features from deceased rapper FBG Duck.
