A lot of artist have struggled with their creative sides due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but just like many others Rico Nasty has managed to find an escape as she does on Nightmare Vacation.
The album features 16 tracks with guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Amine, Don Toliver, Trippie Redd, Rubiross, Ppcocaine and Sukihana.
“That’s why I named it Nightmare Vacation because all the shit that I was scared of at one point, scared to do and scared to say, it just became my second nature,” Nasty told Lowe. “I want to say that shit. I don’t care if I hurt somebody’s feelings. I’m going to wear it. I don’t care if I get dirty looks … Nightmare Vacation is really just about being yourself, your truest self, going through things that people tell you you can’t get out of and getting out of them, coming out a rockstar.” Nasty told Apple’s Zane Lowe.
“I heard about 100 gecs from my A&R,” Nasty told Lowe of her introduction to the acclaimed brand of pop made possible by the duo of Dylan Brady and Laura Les. “I’m always asking him to put me on to weird sounding shit. I was looking for something. I like ear orgasms.”
