Rico Nasty is one of the industry’s innovative genre-benders, blending hip hop, rock, DMV go-go, and grunge into her sound. The DMV, Afro-Latina artist, broke into music after losing her teenage love, and the father of her child passed away from an asthma attack. The single mother has made a name for herself in the rap game through her humble beginnings and used music as an outlet to heal, making it out of Prince George’s County, Maryland, and breaking barriers.
While opening for Playboi Carti on his King Vamp tour (formerly known as the Narcissist tour), Rico Nasty received a less-than-warm reception.
At The Forum in Los Angeles (November 6), the DMV punk-rap princess got booed by Playboi Carti fans, who either were not feeling her music or were too impatient to wait to see Carti perform.
The “Smack A Bitch” artist did not back down and clapped back at the crowd calling them “disrespectful mfers” and saying that instead of performing, they would all sit in silence.
The following day, she shared her thoughts about the incident on Twitter, calling Carti fans an “Anti-black ass crowd. Weak ass little boys wit blonde pubes.”
“Ugh. Get me out of here,” she tweeted.
We’re not anti black, we just want to see Carti and Ken Car$on more than you😂

Footage posted to social media from Saturday (November 13) in Portland, Oregon, shows The Nightmare Vacation rapper, unfortunately, getting disrespected once again after a fan allegedly threw a bottle at her.
In the video, she tells security to “come and get this n****” before plunging into the crowd herself to confront the bottle-thrower.
Despite all the hate and the crowd’s lack of appreciation, Rico has received widespread support from multiple artists and producers. Artists like Doja Cat, Aminé, Metro Boomin, and even Coi Leray, took to social media to defend the rap star to remind her of how dope she is.
