ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Persistent : continuing firmly in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

When talking about Ricky McHardy, nothing else could define him more. Born in Beverly Massachusetts, February 20, 1985, he seemed destined for hardship. Until now.

As a child, Ricky went through several bouts of depression while searching for who he was. He learned to battle the issues with his weight and unsavory choices through his writing. When he heard his first rap song at age 12, he knew what he wanted. He attributes his passion for music to a song that hit home for him even at his young age, Slippin' by DMX.

Ricky continued writing through his middle and high school years. While at Whittier Tech., he was arrested for possession of marijuana while on campus. Upon school changes, he found a job as a welder during his senior year. Due to probation, he switched to alcohol for solace. After several arrests and attempts at various counsel sessions to rid himself of drugs and alcohol, he moved to Florida for a change of scenery.

While there, he signed with LumpSum Records and worked with various artists on collaborations, but the bad decisions and addiction problems continued. However, when he found himself in jail once again, all was not lost. It was there he met God and thanks Him daily for saving his life from the hundreds of times he should have been dead. During his incarceration, he kept writing. After his release, he remained sober for a while and started working on his music. Soon afterward, his father was in a horrible motorcycle accident and had to relearn to walk. About a year later the family learned of a tumor on his father's brain that lead to his death within the month.

It was then that Ricky's drinking problem exploded. After moving back to Groveland with his father for the last two weeks of his life, he hit “rock bottom”. Once a childhood friend was able to reach into the dark recess that he fled, Ricky went to AA and has been sober since.

Now he plugs away at music that has been the core of who he is for as long as he can remember. His debut solo album was released Oct.30 2011 with a follow up album said to be released during summer of 2012.
