You AND YOUR LYRICS could be FEATURED on the next limited edition Russian Bear bottle


Two years ago premium vodka brand, Russian Bear and local hip hop artist, Riky Rick joined forces. The collab led to an iconic Limited Edition Russian Bear x Riky Rick bottle featuring the man himself and his freshest lyrics.

Now, it could be you. If you think “I AM NEXT”, write the fieriest lyrics about reaching the next level and not only could you bag yourself a limited edition Russian Bear x Riky Rick bottle, but you could be featured next on the limited edition Russian Bear bottle along with your lyrics.

All you have to do is pen your lyrics on the Russian Bear website, or via Twitter and Instagram using #IamNext and tagging @RussianBearSA before Tuesday, 27 December. The rules are simple: submit one line per entry and enter as many times as you like – keeping your lyrics hip hop fresh but also PG.

Russian Bear will reward 50 fans who penned the best lyrics with the limited edition Russian Bear x Riky Rick bottle, emblazoned with the face and lyrics of Boss Zonke himself. The top three will get to feature in the Russian Bear film series “I AM NEXT” – and one lucky grand prize winner will receive his own bottle design sporting his or her lyrics and likeness.

“When we first collaborated with Riky Rick on this project, we were looking to create a unique design that was an expression of both Riky’s artistry and our premium vodka – Now it’s time to take it to the next level. We are joining forces with the people who matter the most: our fans,” says Russian Bear Brand Manager, Simone Burns. “Get ready to experience a collaboration of swag, style and artistry that’s truly next level. It’s time to tell yourself: I am next!”
