Montego Bay-based dancehall artiste Rickey Teetz knew only too well what it was like to grow up poverty-stricken and struggling to make ends meet. These sentiments are expressed clearly in his popular single, 'Poverty Life', that depicts the harsh, sometimes cruel conditions of the ghetto.
"It was hard, growing up with my mother, three brothers and three sisters. From the age of seven, I have been hustling in the streets, whether it was selling in the market, or buying goods to sell back somewhere. I was always hustling so this song is somewhat autobiographical, and the scenes from the video reflect my struggle and that of others in similar situations," he said. In November, he will release the video for his well-known 'Poverty Life' single which is already a cult anthem in the streets of western Jamaica. Recently, Rickey Teetz wowed patrons at an event called 'Climaxx' at Tropical Beach where he kicked off his set with the conscious radio hit, 'Poverty Life'. The fans loved his energy and conviction and several lighters went skyward in appreciation of his song. He segued into the hustler anthem,'Rise Up', which elicited another favourable response from the audience who loved the conscious vibes. Then he showed his great versatility by launching into a ladies segment highlighted by his current hit, 'Tip Yuh'. Several women ran to the front of the stage and engaged in sexually charged, and highly enthusiastic wining to the song while men lustily cheered them on. Rickey was forced to stop and perform the song again, much to the delight of the women, then when he dropped '630 Walk', the energy level spiked again. The ladies almost lost their minds, and one woman in particular did an acrobatic '630 Walk' where it appeared her forehead touched her knees, while the audience roared its delight. He closed his set with the street anthem '1000 Blocks' which had the audience shouting forwards. You can follow Rickey Teetz on Instagram, Twitter, for Bookings call 564-4251. Rickey Teetz is booked to perform this weekend at 'Stars Among Stars' on October 25th at Topclass Sports Bar in Clock in Montego Bay, St. James.
