Lil Rick is the first Yello International Bashment Soca Monarch.

Around 5 a.m. on Saturday at Kensington Oval, when host DJ Ras made the announcement, it was met with massive cheers from those who had the stamina to survive the six hour Phenomenonal Friday event.

Moments after the Hypa Dawg was crowned, he told the media he was looking forward to retaining his Party Monarch and Tune of the Crop titles. (TG)
