Since the release of his EP, My Name is Ricky Blaze, in 2011, the artiste named in the title has been working on the production side of his career. Having now established himself as a music producer working with the likes of Chris Brown, Gyptian, Wiz Khalifa and Akon (just a few names from the multiplying notches on his belt), Ricky Blaze is now looking to make his way, once again, as a recording artiste. You probably remember the young musician's 2009 hit single Feel Free, which was remixed with Jim Jones, replacing Nicki Minaj and Red Café, who were on the original. Having signed with Ultra Records, Ricky Blaze has once again collaborated with Jim Jones for his latest single Kill Em. The single, the artiste told The Gleaner, is the lead from his upcoming urban mixtape, The Maestro, which fans can expect to drop in around a week. Ricky Blaze revealed in an interview that with The Maestro, he is looking to promote himself as that often-mentioned triple threat - singer, songwriter and producer. This means a lot of work for the musician, who seems more than up to the task. In fact, Blaze mentioned another EP during the interview, this time an electronic dance music compilation he expects to be released soon as well. For Ricky Blaze, it's all about creativity and finesse, and the musician revealed that the Jamaican music industry has been lacking in that department.
"To be honest, I'm not really seeing a lot of creativity in the industry. The music has definitely changed over the years but a lot of other styles of music are influenced by Jamaican music, and so we need to amp up the creativity and better represent this current generation,"   Blaze said.
Ricky Blaze was recently on the island lending his blend of creativity to Denyque's upcoming EP, Her Name is Denyque. Read more: For further information: and
