Chicago’s nouveau disco-inspired rap superstar, United Nations Geneva-visiting activist, and community goofball Ric Wilson have dropped three crucial EPs “Soul Bounce” (2016) & “Negrow Disco” (2017) & “BANBA” (2018). Performing at Rolling Loud, North Coast, Mamby on the Beach, Tour De Fat, and opening for acts such as The Roots, Chuck D and Public Enemy. The 23-year-old electrified motivational Funka hop pop poet has much more to prove and show to the world.
Ric is also one of the 8 delegates chosen to travel to Geneva, Switzerland, in November of 2014, representing the We Charge Genocide coalition. They successfully presented a shadow report and testified at the United Nations, charging the Chicago Police Department with genocide and torture actions against Black and brown youth within Chicago, helping to create a worldwide connection. The trip was covered all over the US and countries foreign, including Daily Mail (UK), 20 Minuten (Switzerland), MSN France, Japan Times, Zee News (India), Gulf Times (Qatar), IOL News (South Africa), Straits Times (Singapore), Business Reporter (Pakistan), Breitbart and more.
Ric Wilson has been featured/reviewed on Billboard, Pitchfork, Complex, Noisey, Afropunk, Vinyl Me Please, Ebony, The Source, BET, Okayplayer, HipHopDx, and more.
