There are a whole whack of crime-related variations on the buzzword “Rico,” most of which stem from  the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act that was passed back in the 70’s to help the Po clamp down on organized crime through repeat offense tracking. MellowHype’s “Rico,” from their new album BLACKENDWHITE, is a tight little sub-bass driven track that endorses whole bunch of ways of “gettin’ it” (drugs, theft, etc) including playing the snitch: “Niggas can’t get a job so we self employed/If the coppas’ come a’ knock’n we gon’ help that boy.” Besides all this cleverly worded anything-goes talk, the best part of the track is the pulsating sub-driven beat and the gloriously addicting chorus melody. But be warned:  you’ll be singing “Wolf Gang get me off, get me off” in no time.
