There is simply no doubt that RICQY ULTRA has been one of the most unswerving hip-hop heads in the music landscape particularly, HAUSA HIPHOP. He drops this startling mixtape he titles SIMPLY ULTRALISTIC.
This is the third (3rd) mixtape project from the artist within a single calendar year. He dropped HATE IT OR LOVE IT Vol. I and within the same week, unleashed the follow-up HATE IT OR LOVE IT Vol. II. His unquenchable desire to give his devoted fans what they need prompted him to drop a single titled NA FASO. He hinted on dropping his maiden album to be titled MAHAKURCI MAWADACI, but without prior notice, unleashed this 10-track mixtape album SIMPLY ULTRALISTIC.
Ricqy Ultra is known for his unique and precise way of delivering his lines on any hip-hop invented beat. He is an authoritarian when it comes to voicing out his mind most especially, on the microphone. He was one of the most featured artists in the Hausa hip-hop scene, particularly in Kano State, Nigeria. He has collaborated with almost every known artist both in the rap game and in the contemporary music circle.

The eyes are the windows to the soul.
