Introducing: Riiiiko – Get Smoked
Saudi Arabian artist Riiiiko brings us their new track “Get Smoked”, an explicit trap and hip-hop track about the artist’s own reckless behaviour, ahead of their EP release. Implementing rap and heavy bass, Riiiiko details his experiences with drugs, law enforcement and inner battles, with this dark and introspective release. “Get Smoked” is certainly for fans of Corpse Husband and 21 Savage, while also tapping into Riiiiko’s success in making this fully his own.
When asked about the track, he mentioned working with producer Kriracha;
“Kriracha started with a track trying to encapsulate the Memphis hip hop sound so he started with the sample then added the hard drums and 808’s after that I heard the beat and started writing right away. Kriracha sent the stems to B-Element and he helped organise, co-produce and record and mix the whole track.”
With his latest release, Riiiiko is proving to be an unstoppable and enigmatic force sweeping through the rap scene. His releases are going from strength to strength as he hones his craft and uses music to authentically express himself.
‘Get Smoked’ leads up to his EP ‘Dark Wiiiinter’ (17.03.2022) where he goes even deeper into his current state.
