In 2013, Rico Recklezz was sent to jail for unlawful use of a weapon. While filming a video in Englewood, Chicago, Rico along with some other individuals were using real guns for the video, the police were tipped off and soon showed up on the set to arrest Rico Recklezz along with Sheldon Cobb, and Rayvon Lollis.
Rico Recklezz is originally from 35th and Lakepark (Lowend area) , a Black P Stone stronghold. He's an insane Black P Stone member of Wuga World which is a Gangster Disciples set. Wuga World is an ally of Bricksquad (GDs) which is Lil Jojo's gang. In an interview with Vlad TV, Rico claimed Jojo is heavily responsible for his decision to rap. Lil Durk, a Black Disciple gang member from Lamron, famously dissed both gangs in his song, L's Anthem, in which Lil Durk rapped "Bricksquad I said f*ck em, Wugaworld with em so f*ck em." Recklezz claims that this song is what motivated Lil Jojo to put out "BDK (3hunnak)," a diss song aimed at rival Black Disciples gangs and rappers. Lil Jojo was later gunned down following the song. Recklezz claims it doesn't matter what gang an individual claims, as long as they're real and not opps, he can get along with them.
Ewol Samo, a Black Disciples gang member from Trigga Town, is Rico's blood cousin. Ewol's gang is currently feuding with Lil Flip's gang, MBAM, a GD set. Following some altercations that have been kept private between the two gangs and MBAM Flip saying "F*ck Manky," Ewol and Lil Flip had a confrontation which resulted in Lil Flip getting jump. Manky was a fellow member of Ewol's gang that passed away.
The story goes Ayoo KD got a call to do a feature, on his way to do the feature with his trusted buddy Jojo Capone, he picked up Lil Flip. When they got to the location it became clear it was a setup, Ewol and company came out with 30s and then proceeded to lecture Lil Flip and Ayoo KD about disrespecting his gang and Rico Recklezz, and then jumped Lil Flip. Lil Flip and his gang believed that Rico Recklezz and Jojo Capone played a part in the setup and vowed revenge; with one of MBAM's members famously saying "We gonna dedread a b*tch," referring to Rico Recklezz. Part of the incident was caught on tape, though the guns were kept off camera. The interesting thing about the beef is that Rico Recklezz is the baby father to Lil Flip's sister.
Rico Recklezz has had an ongoing feud with fellow Chicago rapper ‘Kenny Red’. It’s unclear what initially started the beef. Kenny claimed he robbed Rico Recklezz on twitter, though Rico initially denied Kenny’s claims, he later made tweets that hinted that him or some close associates of his were robbed. Kenny released a diss song titled “In The Field” aimed toward Rico Recklezz in which he rapped “Mack shots have his momma cryin, then beat the case cuz the witness died”. Rico Recklezz responded to Kenny’s song with his own song titled “Who Killed Kenny”, in which he says “You in the field? N*gga please, you in the house”.
Rico has numerous videos on youtube which shows him acting out, from punching random individuals to showing off his handgun while in school.
