Growing up in Richmond, VA there isnʼt much opportunity for young driven artists such as Rizzy Rackz. Its a city of low-income families and high crime rates. He got the name Rackz as a teenager when a friend pointed out the fact that Rizzy never bought anything, but always had a big stack of money. One day while in the studio recording he got a call that his 23-month-old daughter was shot in the side of her torso during a visit to a family members house in Hillside Court Projects on Richmond's Southside. The same neighborhood where his uncle, Marco, was murdered several years earlier by his best friend. Thankfully the bullet went straight through all flesh, sparing all organs as well as her life.
From that point on Rackz took his music more serious, focusing on developing a sound that's unique to him and no other saying “Failing is not an option." When talking to Rizzy, at times it seems as if he has this intellectual burden of superb logic, street consciousness, and self-awareness. He said, “I just wanna make people move while maintaining substance, content, and deliverance of the message.” Rackz's new single "BET" is definitely an all new sound with a contagious vibe. Perfect title to describe the feeling the song gives you. Authenticity is what you get with Rizzy Rackz. Follow him on this journey of music and life.
