Five-time Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Ricky P released his latest track “Break You Down” featuring the Houston rapper Sosamann last Friday, March 12 with the Taylor Gang label. Produced by Detroit’s Z COOK, the song keeps his style alive with his smooth and steady beats.
The two storytelling artists kept the momentum going by premiering the music video, as well.
A Pittsburgh native, Ricky P embodies versatility as a singer, writer, producer, and performer. He constructed his career around consistency, growth, learning, and executing, allowing him to break down boundaries and create music across genres.
His reputation has led to multiple collaborations with a wide range of artists including Juicy J, DaBaby, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, and Wiz Khalifa on his 2015 hit single from Furious 7 “See You Again” feat. Charlie Puth. The song broke records, becoming the all-time most-viewed video on YouTube with now well over five billion views.

Ricky also showed his viability in the performance space with a memorable performance at Bonnaroo in 2014, adding a career-defining moment to his resume. Taking the stage right before Elton John, this was the biggest crowd he’s ever seen and performed for in his life.
Ricky’s career focus and his passion push him to continue to create music. He loves that music brings people together and wants to continue to help spread its impact across the world.
Houston rapper and Sauce Factory founder Sosamann represents Splashtown with club-friendly, bass-heavy songs about partying and street life. He took his ability as a storyteller (he once contemplated becoming an author) and turned it into rap. He linked with the Sauce Twinz in 2014 and appeared on every track of their mixtape Sauce Theft Auto: Splash Andreas the following year.
His 2015 hit “Did a Whole Lot” from his debut album Trap’d Out 2 attracted the attention of Wiz Khalifa, who signed Sosamann to Taylor Gang. Later, Wiz would join Sosamann on “Not the Vine” from his full-length album Sauce Eskobar, which also featured Young Dolph, Sauce Walka, and Sancho Saucy.
