Queer Rapper Rica Shay Parties With Club Kids In The Desert In New Video

Hip hop comes to the desert.

Rica Shay is a queer hip hop artist and rapper based out of Los Angeles who is already well-known in the queer underground in both the City of Angels and New York City. The rapper recently dropped his latest video, “Turn This,” featuring an assortment of club kids and nightlife personalities.

“Regardless of the tone of the song, I always put uplifting lyrics into my music,” Rica Shay told The Huffington Post. “It’s very important to me to to stay true to myself in my music. Writing and performing live are what really drive me. Sometimes I spend hours on the subway listening to beats and writing in my notebook. Generally I am a socially awkward and quiet person ― but being on stage allows for me to be express myself and be uninhibited. It’s when I really feel like I have control.”

We’re feeling it, Rica.
