It’s been two years since the release of his chart-topping debut, and now Roddy Ricch is back with his sophomore album ‘LIVE LIFE FAST.’ And Roddy stopped by the Power Mornings to talk the new project, his inspirations, and more.

‘LIVE LIFE FAST’ is the follow-up to Roddy’s debut album ‘Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial’ and was created throughout the pandemic. The project includes 18 tracks with features from Future, Gunna, Takeoff, and more; and He shared with both Letty and Teddy co-host’s Teddy and Javen, the album covers the period between the first album and the second. 

His focus this time wasn’t to re-live, or go back in time to recreate what he’s done, but to give something new and do it again. The album is being considered to have a “No Skip Policy” and although Roddy allows his fans to pick the single, he’s dubbed his song “All Good” with Future was his personal favorite. 

Roddy Ricch also discussed working with Ye, and how he taught him how to be a visual learner, his relationship with the late Nipsey Hussle, not being passed the torch in Los Angeles, but taking it, and even dropped his monumental west coast albums in the last 10 years. 

Co-Host Teddy also gave Roddy his flowers and questioned his relationship with Justin Bieber now after he charted #1 on Billboard for 3 months straight taking the spot from him for his song “Yummy.” Roddy says he’s since got a chance to chat with Bieber, and its cool. The GRAMMY-award winning artist even speaks on hopes of creating new music with Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, and BTS.
