Rick Jewelz

Born November 23rd 1989 on Thanksgiving in Denver, CO, rapper, songwriter, and producer, Ricky Jewelz began working on music at an early age. Starting with piano lessons at the age of 5, to writing songs at the age of 6, Ricky knew there was something great destined for him with music. At the age of 8, Rick began recording his own tapes on his family’s karaoke machine. He sold the tapes at school while in the 3rd grade. Fast forward a few years to the 6th grade when Ricky Jewelz began recording, and distributing his own CD’s to his classmates in the hallways. Things weren’t always so great for young Ricky Jewelz, in mid-sixth grade he began hanging out with gang members, and becoming more and more like the people around him. The music was never far away, even through these times of change. Rick continued making songs and recording daily. In 2004 Ricky got more focused on music, and began leaning towards battles to get a name for himself. He and his crew shut down numerous teams in their area, but decided it was time to go bigger. In 2007 Ricyk Jewelz started grinding hard, recording more than 225 songs that year, and releasing his first street album "The Rebellion" hosted by Dallas DJ, DJ Black Jesus. This was Rick’s first encounter to light success. In the time following, Ricky began getting a heavier buzz in the industry. In the 3rd quarter of 2008 linking with Freck Billionaire, Red Café, and Fabolous, over his saucy production "Money Chaser" that he laced the hook too as well. The record became Freck Billionaire's single off of his debut street album "The Rich Yung Report." The song was instantly cosigned by DJ Clue and played on New York's heavy weight station Power 105.1 FM. It was also on a vast amount of mixtapes, hip hop and blog sites. Ricky Jewelz produced a song by Freck Billionaire and Fat Joe, entitled "Hustle For" off the album as well as being featured on 2 songs "Dont Talk Much" and "Money Man" which featured Fabolous's brother Paul Cain. Fast forward a few months and there was a song leaked on the internet that Ricky produced. The song was performed by Currensy featuring Freck Billionaire entitled "Drug Flow." In April of '09, he linked with Yung Berg and the Yung Boss Music group, producing a handful of songs for them. The most recent being "The World Is Yours" featurin K Smith (Will Smith's nephew). Also linking with Tommy Hilfiger's, son Rich Hil, to create the smooth but classy song entitled "Baby" off of his mixtape "Lost Limos Part II." In late May 2009, The Colorado Kid Ricky Jewelz released his street single "On Me" produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. Which has been accepted greatly by the fans of hip hop threwout the nation. It's only right to follow up a single with a dope project tho right? That's when he dropped "Rebel Wit A Cause" a 21 track mixtape, that he produced 3/4's of. Ricky prooved on this project that you dont need features to keep your tape interestin. You just need one thing, and that is to be versatile! One question he often gets is "What is it that you do or have to make these major artist/producers want to work with you?." It's the grind,dedication and passion this young talented 19 yr old Rap Artist/Songwriter/Producer contains. It’s well known the industry may have a new heavy weight on their hands. Unsigned, and still as ambitious as ever, Ricky is keeping his head high, and skills sharp, awaiting the day success knocks on his door, until then it’s Jewelz Season!
