Height and Other Facts About Rico Recklezz

  • His arrest in 2013

After facing charges for unlawful use of weapons, the rapper was sentenced to 3 years at Stateville Correctional Center. The arrest was made after the authorities were tipped off during the filming of one of his music videos.

  • Beef with fellow rappers

Rico Recklezz has had countless altercations with fellow Chicago rappers, especially Lil Durk, Soulja Boy, Lil Flip and Ayoo Kd. He got entangled with the last two because of their beef with his cousin Ewol Samo which they believed he contributed to. Interestingly, Lil Flip is the younger brother of Rico’s baby mama. His beef with Lil Durk, on the other hand, led to events that later claimed the life of his friend Lil Jojo in 2012. His most controversial beef so far was with Soulja Boy and it began in November 2016 when the latter dissed Lil Yachty in a song. Rico retaliated with his own track as Yatchy is one of the rappers he respected, thus, Soulja allegedly placed a bounty on Rico, promising to give $100, 000 to anyone who gets him. The offer later took a different turn and the rapper had to call off the beef.
