Noah Bodie aka Lee Ricks

Born in 1980 in Smithfield, North Carolina, Lee Ricks has always been a believer in making good music with a special place in his heart for hip-hop music.

Over the years Lee Ricks has lived in many different states including New Mexico, California, Minnesota, North Dakota, and most recently in Colorado. In 8th grade he started a mobile Dj service for local events and that business is what ultimately led him to start freestyling with some friends in the garage of his Carlsbad home. As Lee Ricks started to rhyme in more public settings he started to receive positive feedback from the spectators which led him to start writing original compositions. “It’s something inside my soul that overwhelms me until it’s released through my rhyming,” says Lee Ricks.

Lee Ricks has a diverse taste in music but says that Bob Marley is the most inspirational musician to him because of the amount of love put into his music and for his uncompromising ability to be himself. As love being a major motivation factor in Lee Ricks music he has more specifically fell in love with language and the ability of the person speaking that language to express love, sadness, pain, anger and happiness. “Music can deliver a message in a way people can really hear and also creates the picturesque images that float through our minds,” Lee Ricks.

Lee Ricks honed his lyrical talents for years while, doing other underground hip-hop projects along the way. His first production was called “Soundtenants (2007),” followed by “Bad Bananas (2013),” “HonestLee (2014),” and “UniversaLee (2015).”

As always Lee Ricks continues to write and compose songs while enjoying sports, cooking, laughter, and friends in his free time. He has some interesting and entertaining projects planned for the future so be on the lookout!

“With the possibilities of music being so limitless, my excitement and desire to make more music in my life increases daily,” Lee Ricks.
