rickavessel (Ricky Malone) was born and raised in the Chicago city streets of Rogers Park his whole life. As far back as he could remember he has always been a fan of all kinds of music, but hip hop is what he mostly gravitated towards. Hip Hop has always had an influence on the way that he thought and decisions that he made in his life. As a teen, and young adult, rickavessel was drawn into the street life of drugs, and gangs and the negatives that are glamorized in hip hop music. But then at the age of 26, rickavessel received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. And as he begin to grow in his faith, his music began to reflect his beliefs. Indoctrination the full album is scheduled to come out April 8 2015 digitally as well as hard copies. What sets rickavessel apart from the average artist is that, he really lives what he communicates in his message, he is approachable and accountable for the lyrics that he puts out.
