UGR: Tell us about a little about yourself?
My name is Rico Panacea. I’m a already cool guy. I might be one of the coolest dj’s you’ve never heard about. My personality transcends itself. Lol! Naw, but foreal I’m just a normal guy from Mississippi.
UGR: Being a musician, where do you see yourself fitting into the current music scene?
I see myself as being a breath of fresh air. As a dj I feel like I can understand my production better. I know what I can & can’t do to please an audience. My listeners rock with me & I’m just trying to give them good music to enjoy.
UGR: What new artists have you been listening to lately?
New artists…. I listen to a lot of Hustle Gang artists. RaRa & London Jae have been growing on me lately. I like Tokyo Jetz. Been a fan of Yung Booke & Shad Da God is one of my personal favorites.
UGR: What made you want to pursue a career in entertainment?
It’s real a combination of luck & inheritance. I was lucky enough to have someone see me playing around with VirtualDJ & they asked me to be their DJ. That’s why I do my mixshow on VirtualDJRadio. It’s my way of giving back to the culture that scooped me up. The other part is family roots. I’m blessed to have family members that were also phenomenal DJ’s. It’s literally written in my blood. So music & production just feels right to me.
UGR: Who are some of your favorite musicians?
As of right now T.I., Skooly, RaRa, London Jae, Kendrick Lamar & Shad Da God.
UGR: What are 3 of your favorite albums?
My 3 favorite albums would be “T.I. – King,” “Skooly – Trench Gotti,” & “Kanye West – MTDBF.”
UGR: What should we be looking for in the future from Rico Panacea?
“Therapy or the Liquor Store” is the latest project. That drops in October, maybe earlier. I’m working on that with a few of the artists I support & they also support me. It’s a family thing. No albums this year just therapy or the liquor store. Either or gahdamn lol.
UGR: Do you have any last words?
