The road to pursuing your dreams can turn out to be anything but what you expected and the same can go for once you get what you’ve always wanted. Rising rapper Rico Nastyy, who’s been described as one of the most talented MC’s in the game at just 24 years old has found herself on tour with Playboi Carti. What would be normally seen as a chance of a lifetime has turned out to be a nightmare for the DMV rapper. She’s had bottles thrown at her and been booed in LA which she responded saying, “This is what the f*ck we gon’ do for you disrespectful muthaf*ckers out there.. B*tch, we gon’ sit in muthaf*ckin silence! Don’t you f*cking play! What you think this is, b*tch? It’s not that.”

In a series of now deleted tweets caught by Complex, she’s written, “I dead ass need at least two hours out of each day. To just cry,” she began. “Crazy how I wanted a tour bus my whole life and now I just be on the tour bus crying myself to sleep every night ?. I wish I was dead just as much as y’all do trust me. Y’all win.”

An outpouring of support has come in from artists such as Kehlani saying, “Rico is a gem of an artist and person, i hope you know how epic and special you are @Rico_nastyy !!!!!!!! 🔒🔒” Flomilli wrote, “love u forever friend Yellow heart @Rico_nastyy.” Baby Tate told her, “We love you Rico! @Rico_nastyy”

As someone who calls and checks on friends when they’re feeling down and particularly those feeling suicidal, this hurts watching transpire, especially seeing someone have their dreams realized and it turns out to be traumatizing. She’s got our prayers and we hope Playboi Carti, who’s been silent through this speaks up for her and gets her the support she needs.
