As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Risko from Lima to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Risko! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Risko: It was a god giving gift actually I was playing basketball but I broke my leg then my dad & mom use to fight all the time I use to get took to school by the police everyday I been homeless still trying fight that cause I can be homeless any day so I just turn my pain into words started when I was 12 I know if I can become a big time artist I can change a lot in my city & maybe even the world I wanna see people happy & not always asking for help
Everything u write & say is coming from your eyes & the way u see things & only real life facts don’t ever let nobody down your music by yourself but always judge your songs & your own character before u destroy yourself or let somebody else do it for it
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes I do play live I have twice since I been in the booth that was 2 months ago I opened for juice world ,nebu , lil Bibby
Best punchline you ever wrote?
U just gotta realize the fact nobody really got your back
