Ricky Powell the Rickster After The Smoke rap interview

ATS & Ricky Powell Eliminate Segregation

In regards to After The Smoke, Ricky Powell says, “I think they are a very relevant group to acknowledge.” Word. They’re in the now, but the Rickster is putting you in the know without getting too deep on the politricks affecting them through record label disputes. Washing down any feelings of bitterness from the drama goes down nice with a Heineken. The Tallahassee boys touched down in NY for the latest edition of Rappin’ With the Rickster and they keep it trilla, for real-la. Seeing them in the Brian Nobili directed video, posted up in front of Electric Lady studios on 8th Street puts them on the Rickster’s turf. But in reality, we’re on theirs. After The Smoke is as psychedelic as they come, like generations of spiritual musicians that recorded at the Greenwich Village studio—Jimi Hendrix and D’Angelo, for example. Watch Florida’s finest take the Big Apple and get up on their tunes below.
