Ricardo Villarreal aka theycallmericky is a 24 year-old Mexican-American artist based in the Southwest side of Chicago,Il. He began writing lyrics at the age of 12 inspired initially by artists such as Kanye West and Lil Wayne. Song writing quickly became a source of self expression and self reflection which is evident in the often transparent and vulnerable themes found throughout his music. Since 2014 Ricky has released his debut album, “Bloom” along with 4 mixtapes, multiple EPs, and singles. July 23rd will mark the release of a new EP in the form of “Verano Contigo.”
