Atlantic Records signee Rico Nasty (real name Maria-Cecilia Kelly) has teamed up with Belgian-based artist and illustrator Rhymzelikedimez (real name Robin Velghe) on a collaborative capsule. Inspired by the Rhymezlikedimez-designed visuals from Rico’s Nightmare Vacation album and videos, the capsule comprises a Risograph print and a six-inch figurine produced by ToyQube, the same company behind Bearbricks and Astro Boy toys.
Commenting on the effort, Rhymezlikedimez stated, “I’m so happy that we can share this one with the world. Rico is so unique and genuine so it was awesome working with her on this design. And I can only hope I translated that in the right way. A cool extra is that it’s the very first Rhymezlikedimez figurine. Which gives a sort of sneak peak of what’s to happen in the Rhymez universe for the coming years.”
The 12-inch by 16.5-inch print is limited to 150 prints and is numbered and signed by Rhymezlikedimez and also includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Rico. The figurine is packaged in an illustrated box and is accompanied by stickers and a keychain.
Priced at $100 for the print and $250 for the figurine, both items launch exclusively on NTWRK at 4:00 PM EST on November 16, 2021.
