We had the good fortune of connecting with RockstarRican and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi RockstarRican, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I fell like risk taking is very important in life and threw out careers. As far as myself, the risk that i took was that i decided not to go to college just to pursue a music career. One reason for that is because growing up, i always fealt like i was bigger than just going to school to work a regular job, my vision was way bigger, so i took the risk of chasing a music career instead of chasing a career to work for somebody for the rest of my life. Dont get me wrong, im not fully where i want to be in life, but for the most part, i refuse to give up before i reach my set milestone,

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Im mainly proud of myself for learning how to write and record music, my reason for that is because growing up, i never thought that this music dream was possible to accomplish, even as i saw artist like lil wayne and drake on tv, i still just felt like it was never going to happen for me, to the point where i just knew for sure that i would go to college and do something in the field of fixing computers, but then plans changed the more i was practicing and perfecting my craft

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If a female bestfriend was to visit me, i would show her around the city of Richmond, Virginia, which is where i grew up, then i would take her to a few food spots that i like to eat at( different spot everyday for 5 days), i would also show her 1 of my favorite hookah spots that i like to chill at on the weekends. As far as interesting places, i would also take her downtown to some of my spots that overlook the city of Richmond and just chill and talk about life goals Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I mainly just want to say shoutout to my mom and pops for pushing me to always chase my dreams and never give up
