The first time we heard Ricky Hil was in 2009 on a track with Kid Cudi called 'Girls, Sounds & Colors'. Instantly after hearing the song we were drawn in by his unique voice and overall sound. Since then, Ricky's musical style has developed into something we can't really classify by genre. His musical inspirations range from Beanie Sigel to Bob Dylan.

Over the last few months we didn't hear much from Ricky. When we reached out to do our first 'Portrait' with him and arrived at his home in Los Angeles, we were immediately thrown into a surprising update on his life.
