about

With mainstream Hip Hop still widely governed by the same tried and tired stereotypes we’ve all been
used to for some time now, you could say it would be refreshing to hear something new and different
and that’s exactly what Ricta brings to the table in his debut album ‘Snacks & Deception’, big boom bap style beats
reminiscent of acts like Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples & People Under The Stairs provide the backdrop
to many a great story. From relationship trials and tribulations, hopes , dreams, or even just waking
up to a cornish pasty, Ricta shows his vulnerabilities as well as playing his part of underground Hip Hop
party rocker. Much of the album production is Ricta’s own but also features hits from Germany’s ‘Jusoul’,
‘Robot Orchestra’, ‘Beatowski’ & Poland’s ‘The Returners’. Ricta also pulls a first on this album by bringing
together big US rap artists with those from the UK, track 13 on the album ‘Atlantic Anthem’ sees
Craig G (Juice Crew), Reks, Dizzy Dustin (Ugly Duckling), Idyllic, & Precha all coming together on one
track to create something truely unique. The anticipation is high and the stage is set and yet one of
Ricta’s most important traits lends itself now better than ever, his ability to remain humble and
“stick to what he knows best”, this is Hip Hop !

Track Name: Ease Up (Ft. Jabba Tha Kut)
I USED TO LET IT RIFF
AND TAKE HER OUT LIKE THE BENEFITS
MIDNIGHTNIGHT ELEQUANCE
IS ALL I COULD SEE
ME AND YOU LIVIN
TYPICAL FANTASY
STARTIN OUR OWN
TO REPLACE FAMILY
//
THOUGHT MARRIAGE WAS THE KEY
TO ENSURE SANITY
WHAT WE ENGAGED FOR
RIGHT OR THE WRONG REASON
IS IT BECAUSE
YOU GET SCARED THAT IM LEAVIN
IN HEIND SIGHT THIS
WAS MY FOOLISH ERROR
//
BECAUSE THE JEWELS BRING TERROR
IF I COULD ONLY TELL HER
I COULD BE WITH YOU BUT
BEING LONLEYS BETTER
THIS AINT THE RIGHT TIME
AND THERE PROBLY NEVER WILL BE
I RUN DMC
BUT I DONT ROCK A TRILBY
//
YA KILL ME PROPER
WITH CONTROLLIN WAYS
THAT EVENTUALLY WILL CAUSE
ME STROLL AWAY
OK, I ADMIT MAYBE
NOT THE PERFECT PERSON
BUT STILL REMAINED FAITHFUL
OF THAT YOU COULD BE CERTAIN
-------------------------

LISTEN, WHILE IM TELLIN
THIS TALE OF HOW I FAILED
TO SEE THE WARNING SIGNS
OF AN UNBALANCED SCALE
BUT FLIRTIN WITH MEN
ON A REGULAR BASIS
DIRECTLY FACE IS
KINDA TASTELESS
//
SHE'D SAY ANY JEALOUSY
COMPLETLEY UNFOUNDED
AND WHEN IM UP TOWN
ONLY FRIENDS ARE SURROUNDING
BUT HOW WRONG WAS I
TO BELIEVE HER LIES
AND THE EAGLE EYED
WUD SEE SHE WAS AN EASY RIDE
//
IMA LEAVE BEHIND EVERYTHIN
START FROM SCRATCH
FIND SUM1 WHO FIT WITH
LIKE GUTAIRS N AMPS
GETTIN INTO BRA'S N PANTS
IS HARDLY FLASH
AND IF YA STARVED FOR CASH
WELL THEN THERE ARNT A CHANCE
//
THE AVERAGE BITTER MAN
WOULD SAY LOVE IS AN ILLUSION
FILLED WITH THE CONFUSION
OF MENTALLY ABUSIN
YASELF , FAKIN
YOUR AMOUNT OF WEALTH
GOIN OUT TO THE TOWN
ON A SCOUT ABOUT
---------------------------------

NOW IF YOU EVER LOOSE TRUST
MY ADVISE IS TO FINISH IT
THE BOND YOU HAD TOGETHER
IS JUST DIMINISHIN
I APPRECIATE
THAT THIS TIME SPELL HURTS
BUT ITS JUST WHO FINDS
SOMEBODY ELSE FIRST
//
DON'T BE ON THE LOOSIN TEAM
CUS YOU WILL BE
LIVIN IN MOODILY
STARIN AT COMPUTER SCREENS
HACKIN INTO E-MAIL
CHECK THE CONVERSATION
ON THE INTERNET
WHILE YOU CLOCKIN BABESTATION
//
IM NOT HATRED FILLED
OR GOT A HATE FOR GIRLS
I JUST MADE A MISTAKE
THATS THE WAYS OF THE WORLD
BUT WHEN THE TABLES REVEALED
ILL BET YOULL STAY WITH EM STILL
SAYIN THEY BLAMIN A MIL
AND HOW YOU MAKIN EM FEEL
//
NOT SORRY FOR THE SPORT
SORRY THEY GOT CAUGHT
THIS IS JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT
MY OWN NEWS REPORT
SO IF YA STUCK IN A RUT
STRUGGLIN TO MAKE THE CUT
ITS TIME TO BE SELFISH AND
GET WHAT YOU WANT
Track Name: This Year
IM KEEPIN EM CHOKIN, LOOKIN AT ME, SEEIN IM OPEN
CLOSIN, SUPPOSED TO BE HAVIN A SHOW FOR FOLDIN
GOLDEN, WHO REALLY WANTS TO BATTLE ME FOR OWNIN
NO ONE, SAYING SO LONG TO YA OLD SONGS

IM MAKIN EM MAD WHAT A FAILURE TO ILLUSTRATE
THE MATH ID HATE TO TAKE YA PLANS, AND YOUR AIMS OF 80 GRAND
BUT THERE AINT A CHANCE, YOU COULD ENTER MY CYPHER
IM LIVER THAN AN ALL NIGHT NIGHT RIDE COMBINER

YA MINOR, BUT NOTHIN TO LOOSE IS DANGEROUS
SEE FAME TO US, WAS NEVER PART OF THE PLAN
IT JUST STRAIGHT CAME TO US, ID RATHER BE NAMELESS
BUT STILL POSESS THE SKILL TO ACHIEVE THE A PLUS

THE BEATS NUTS, DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD ?
MOST THE TIME I HOLD MY BREATH WHEN IN THE REEFA FOG
DONT REALLY EAT A LOT, PROBLY DRINK ALCOHOL MORE
ILL HIT MY HOME STORE BEFORE WE DO A WHOLE TOUR

----

TWISTIN SCIENCE, AMPLIFY MY
APPLIANCE HIGHER THAN ANY LEVEL, COVERED IN THE LICENSE
IM JUST, REMEMBERING THAT THE WEDDING RING
I USED TO ROCK AROUND MY NECK IS NOW NOT ANYTHING

THE BELL TOLLS, THE PENNY BRINGS , MANY THINGS
BUT NOT WHAT IS GONE, AINT NO 3 KINGS
ILL KEEP HYMS FOR WHEN THERE SEEN TO BE APPROPRAITE
I USED TO HAVE A BIBLE, COULDNT BRING MYSELF TO OPEN IT

A B-BOY, IN A B-BOY STANCE
FLATTEN WEAK MC'S JUST TO IRON OUT THE FANS
TRY MY HANDS, IM DEADLY WITH THE 1&2'S
ALSO, HERE'S YOUR OPTIONS YOU CAN EITHER LOOSE OR GO

MORE DOUGH, 2 INCREASE THE WAX COLLECTION
SEARCHIN FOR THE ALBUM FROM THE BOLUVARD OF LINDEN
UNITED KINGDOM, STRUGGLIN TO FIND ITS PLACE
HARD PRESSED TO FIND MC'S THAT CAN RHYME THIS GREAT

----

METHODICAL, ... CARRY OUT THE PROCEDURE
NONE OF C-CITY SEEIN ME EITHER
THE GREAT BELIEVER, ILL STICK TO WHAT I KNOW BEST
MUSICALLY YA MUSICS IN A CAGE MADE OF STONE MESH

FELL IN THE TRAP, ITS VERY HARD TO RETURN
THE REVERB AINT MY LARGEST CONCERN
I EARNED, RESPECT FROM DOIN MANY FREE SHOWS
MOST THE TIME IM MAKIN BEATS EATIN DORTIOS

CASINOS, IM NEVER MAKIN GAMBLE TRACKS
I GUARANTEE THAT EVERY LINE YOULL HEAR IS ACTION PACKED
THE OPPOSITE OF YA SHOWS AND FANS THAT YOU ATTRACT
ILL DROP A RELEASE, LAY-LOW AND THEN ILL SOON BE BACK

MASTER OF CREATION, ME N JESUS HAD A MEETIN
THE ADAM OF THE EVE SHIT WAS LEFT UP IN THE EDAN
THIS IS POSITIVE READIN, ITS A QUALITY FEELIN
ALL LOCKS OFF THE BOX HIP HOP THAT IM FEEDIN
Track Name: One Of Them Days (Ft. Jabba Tha Kut)
ITS JUST ONE THEM DAYS, YOU CANT MESS UP MY DAY
I JUST SPOKE TO I.D, WITH THE CREDIT TO PAY
HE SAID ILL BE OUTSIDE AROUND SEVEN OR EIGHT
I SAID COOL GIMME A TEXT WHEN YA READY TO BREAK

I SPENT THE WHOLE DAY MAKIN BEATS FOR THE RELEASE
PUT A PASTY ON BLAST, THEN I BRUSHED MY TEETH
ONE STEPPED IN THE STEETS CUS ITS GIVIN ME GRIEF
I GUESS IM FIENDIN FOR NICOTINE LIKE ERIC B & RAKIM

I KNICK A TIN OF KRONENBURG STRAIGHT FROM 64
AND WHEN I REACH MY DOOR I WANNA EAT SOME MORE
I WANNA PIZZA OR A TUB OF CARTE DOR
SLAM IT IN THE CAR DOOR, BUT BACK TO THE ARTFORM

I GOT SOME OLD TRICKS WHEN I GRAB THE 06
OPEN THE FADER PULL A SCRATCH AND THEN I CLOSE IT
I KEEP REVOLVIN LIKE THE GROOVE UNDER THE NEEDLE
WHILE MANY CREWS MAKE MOVES SO FEEBLE

----
----

THE RADIO IS OFF, THE TV IS OFF
I JUST GOT A STACK OF VINYL ON THE TABLE TO ROCK
BUT THEN * * , AYO WHERE'S THE SPOT ?
YOU KNOW ITS ALWAYS AT THE A S MAN TAKE OFF THAT WATCH

AND THEN COTCH, UNTIL THE END OF THE DAY
AND I KNOW YOUR THERE WISHIN BUT REMEMBER THEY SAY
THAT YOU BETTER WATCH THE TIME CUS THE TIME WILL CATCH YA
NOW IM READY FOR THE TIME TAKE A RIDE IN THE ASTRA

MOVE FASTER, INCREASE THE CITY LIMIT

HEADIN SO FAST WE ARRIVE IN NEXT YEAR

BUT WERE, CHILLIN
SO GO AND GRAB A ROUND ON ME, MY PLAN TO MAX ON BALCONIES
IS PARALLAX TO JAPANESE, RELAXIN AT THE BACK OF P'S
WITH EVERYTHING CONSIDERED ITS PERHAPS UNDERSTANDABLY

----
----

I KEEP IT TICKIN TO THE TOCK, OF THE TICK TOCK OF THE RHYTHM

JUGGLING WAX WITH BOTH HANDS THATS ABIDEXTUROUS

ROCKIN AT THE FUNCTION WITH THE RAPS I PRO-FESS
UNDER CONSTRUCTION GOT SLATZ IN PROGRESS
N GO WEST, HITTIN A NEW PLACE
CHECKIN THE ROOM RATES , THE VIVA FOR THE FOOD A NEW TASTE

DONT CONSTRAIN TO SMILE I GOT MORE THAN 80 STYLES
IF HIP HOP WAS SOME STEAK THEN I WOULD EAT STEAK IN PILES
