“Lusus Naturae” is the new album by Bronx native and hip-hop artist Richard Pigkaso. The album’s title, which means “Freak of Nature”, tells the story of Pigkaso’s adventure into his alternate universe. The album from beginning to end gives you the spectrum of his life with songs like “Hometown Hero” whose title captures the essence of Richard Pigkaso being an Independent Hip Hop Artist from New York City.
