Time Flies – [Rico Nasty]

In the age of social media, it’s easy to discount the success of many as a “moment” as opposed to the blossoming of a long-standing career. Rico Nasty, on the other hand, has been bubbling for quite some time now, and as a result, her slow-burning rise has led to the creation of a one-of-a-kind character who, by my estimates, will certainly be around for a while. Today, fresh off of a well-deserved spot on the XXL Freshman list, Nasty is here to reflect on success with the inspirational new offering (and one of my favorite songs of the year), “Time Flies.”

Backed by a sugary, hyper-energetic instrumental, “Time Flies” is more than just a motivational record. Rico Nasty has found success against all odds, unapologetic and uncompromising as can be, and if not anything else, “Time Flies” acts as her chance to sit back and reflect on how far she’s come. Life moves quickly and time most certainly flies, but this release makes it a point to emphasize the gratitude, excitement, and confidence that Nasty feels as she looks ahead.

Similiar to what I wrote about Aminé’s “Places + Faces Freestyle,” hearing artists smell the flowers is what makes the journey seem worth it. Rico Nasty deserves every inch she’s gained, and now reaching new heights each day, it’s refreshing to hear her thoughts on her newfound stardom. From sold-out shows to a stellar XXL freestyle, all signs continue to point up for the superstar herself, with “Time Flies” acting as a perfect soundtrack for the long road ahead.
