[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Avery Storm undressed "Tell Me" last week, rap newcomer Ricky Ruckus explains snatching up Gucci Mane for their "Make A Song" anthem.]
Right now I'm living in Atlanta but I'm from North Carolina. I moved down here in February and "Make A Song" is a song that I already had. I always felt like Gucci [Mane] would be the perfect fit for the joint.
So as soon as I got down here and mixed in, I rubbed shoulders with him a couple times and I told him that I had the record. He went to the studio and we knocked it out. It wasn't a situation where we were in the studio together and put it together. It's just that I felt like he would be the perfect fit for it.
It's not easy because Gucci Mane is a different dude. He moves off people's vibes. If he don't like you, he don't like you. If he likes you, he likes you. There's really not an in-between.
I'm glad that I fell on that other side for him to run with the record. It wasn't really too much convincing, he liked the song. It was actually right after Gucci dropped the diss song where he's talking about people he's got problems with.
It's like d*mn, I'm glad I'm on this other side.
Right now, Ricky Ruckus is concentrating on getting the right major deal, instead of hastily signing a deal that might put him on a "shelf". Also, he is working on new material for video and audio mixtapes -- all while pursuing his college degree from Winston-Salem State in North Carolina. Ricky Ruckus is the best all-around, unsigned, hip-hop artist in the game! Soon, the music industry -- and the world -- will know about this powerhouse of an artist, entertainer, and skillful lyricist.
