He made San Antonio his home for 12 year until he recently moved to Houston, TX. His influential music doesn’t have just one particular sound as he has been influenced by many great artist like “Big Pun, Linkin Park and Baby Rasta & Gringo.” But his greatest inspirational idol is Scat Man John, since they both battle with a speech disorder called stammering. His bravery to overcome his disorder despite the odds, gives Lokito Rico the confidence and pride to not allow mynute obstacles like a stutter get in the way of his greatness of making his name known in the music world!
Behind The Name
"Lokito Rico" was formally known as "King Rico" in the early 2010's as he started to embark in his music career. But during the Covid shut down of 2020 he started researching on rebranding himself. It just so happened, that the very popular show "Vikings" had peaked his interest. His best friend challenged him to grow out his beard, and then he learned of "Loki" the God of Mischief that related to him in more ways than one. With the tattoo Lokito already tattooed on his arm and his Gamertag as "L0KITORIC0," it was all too much not to see the sign of destiny as he embraced his new name "Lokito Rico!" The meaning behind this name in Spanish is ''Crazy Man Rico!'' So that's how Lokito Rico was born.
