Why is the world ready for Richard Pigkaso?

V-Henny: Why do you feel the world is ready to see what you have to offer?

Richard Pigkaso: I feel the world is ready to see something out of the box. Something that isn’t anything like the regular rapper that goes on stage, spits some bars, and then leaves the stage with no feeling. The world needs a different side of hiphop and entertainment that can make people be amazed and feel inspired. 
V-Henny: How does your creativity stands out?
Richard Pigkaso: I yo-yo professionally while rhyming. I give a show within a show with LED lights, smoke screens, yo-yo tricks, and crowd engagement that usually leaves people baffled. 
My creativity stands out from my stage presence and rhymes. I have been told from time to time that I have a cadence similar to Eminem which a lot of people respect. I want to be able to leave an impression in your heart and mind. I know if I didn’t, when I study the crowd and get no type of reaction or awe from them. It seems strange that people feel compelled to come to me after I perform and bombard me with question on my yo-yo tricks and LED lights all over my body. I also feel with the way that I rhyme, it brings back that old school feeling of rap from back in the days. 
V-Henny: When did you realize that coinciding your professionalism as a yo-yo artist with Hip Hop can be expressed together? 
Richard Pigkaso: I realized I can combine my love of yo-yoing and hip hop when I was making my first record, which I haven’t released. In 2012, I was in the booth rapping at Arizzma Entertainment and every time the engineer was fixing my verses and mixing, I would yo-yo. It dawn to me that I truly standout in Hip Hop, as I showcase something that the world has never thought of. I said to myself, “hey why not try to fuse 2 thing you both love?” Since then I’ve always made it a priority to be as theatrical to capture the audiences eye. 
V-Henny: Outside of Hip Hop and entertaning, what do you do on your spare time? 
Richard Pigkaso: The way that I rogue can switch from being extremely silly, and then switch to being about positivity and change in our community. Outside of hiphop, I donate my time to a lot of charities, schools and teach children how to do yo-yo tricks.
V-Henny: How do you want the world to perceive you as an artist?  
Richard Pigkaso:  I want to be the worlds first artist that not only has lyricism. I want to be perceive as the first “performing rapper” The world needs “Eminem meets Cirque Du Soleil”
