Interview: Rick Martinelli Talks Stand Up Comedy, Rap, and more.

Comedian Rick Martinelli has had an interesting journey in the world of entertainment. He first got on our radar years ago as hip hop artist Reason The Citizen, who we’ve seen rock huge crowds with some of hip hop’s biggest acts like Brother Ali, Lupe Fiasco, Joyner Lucas and many more. With the pandemic and subsequent quarantine we hadn’t heard much from RTC, but as the world opened up and we started going back outside we learned that the sharp emcee had re-emerged not as a rapper (for now) but as a stand up comedian under his given name Rick Martinelli. Carrying his intense work ethic over to the new medium, Martinelli has performed over 200 shows, open mics, and gigs around the Los Angeles area in the last year, and he’s headed into the new year with that same energy. We chopped it up with Rick about his career transformation, as well as hip hop, comedy, and more. Check out the interview below!

Brazil’s Drug Wars Just Got Even Deadlier

Great White Close Call

If People Had Soundtracks in Real Life

Dude Who Knows His Rights Educates Cops
