, Maryland MC Rico Nasty for Dublin date in May

21-year-old Maryland native and outspoken MC Rico Nasty has just announced a gig in the Academy Green Room on May 28th.

The MC, who made her major label debut last year, it hotly tipped to blow up this year, offering an in your face yet articulate brand of hip-hop.

Her performance this year at SXSW was the source of much hype, she even got an interview from Nardwuar – the surest sign of approval.

Tickets, at €20+, go on sale this Friday from the Ticketmaster site.
