Rik Billz is #Flyah

Ricardo Billings a.k.a Rik Billz a Detroit, Michigan native known 
for his MOTIVATING, AMPED UP, and BANGING word playing 
rap lyrics always leaves a lasting impression on his listeners. 
Originally a top rated high school basketball recruit out of 
Detroit and runner up for Michigan’s Mr. Basketball, in 2006 
Billings attended Ohio State University on a full ride scholarship 
as one of the nation’s top rated recruits. During his time at 
Ohio State, Billings found his passion for writing rap lyrics and 
spending a few hours on and off in the universities recording 
studios making songs for his team’s pregame warm up routines. 
After a catastrophic and sudden knee injury that almost ended 
his career in his sophomore year, Ricardo transferred to 
Oakland University for a new start in basketball and to finish 
college. After graduating, Ricardo determined that his next 
move would be to work as a youth officer where he currently 
helps Detroit’s troubled youth. 
In the mist of earning an honest living, Billings is now picking up 
where he left off in his love for writing music. With his stage 
name of “RIK BILLZ”, he has teamed up with TrakWave 
Entertainment and is now putting the hard work and dedication 
to seeing his dream come true of someday becoming a premier 
rap artist.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
