If rap is a young person’s sport, then Ricci Bitti is controlling the game. On Season 4 of Lifetime’s “The Rap Game” (co-produced by Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah), we watched as the 14-year-old rapper put her skills to the test each week. Now with the radio’s attention (Streetz 94.5, V-103 and Hot 107.9) and collaborations under her belt (Drumma Boy, Zaytoven, Keke Palmer), she’s focused on building, and taking her career to the next level.
If you don’t already know who Ricci Bitti is, you might wanna get on that because before too long, you’ll be hearing her spit everywhere. Her stage name, a play on her real one, which is Lyric (“Like ‘Lyric-ci,’” she explains, “And ‘Bitti’ was a name that my family always called me from when I was little. When I was a baby, I was itty bitty.”) has been with her since she was super young — and so have her rap skills.
