Led by Oakland, California native Ricky Reed, Wallpaper. fuses hip-hop, pop, and dance music in a carefree, occasionally pointed fashion.
After a pair of EPs in 2006 and in 2008, the first Wallpaper. album, Doodoo Face, was released in 2009 on Eenie Meenie. Reed dished out lighthearted and Auto-Tune-treated lyrics about partying over productions that seemed equally inspired by '80s electro-pop and contemporary mainstream rap. #STUPiDFACEDD (2011) followed on Hype Music in a similar manner. It featured one of Reed's goofiest and most outlandish songs yet in "Fucking Best Song Everr," which was licensed by Epic and re-released in 2012. The song reached the Top Ten of Billboard's club chart. By May 2013, its animated video had close to four-million YouTube views. The album Ricky Reed Is Real followed in 2013 and featured the singles "Good 4 It" and "Drunken Hearts." ~ Andy Kellman
