Speaking with Justin, the Compton-bred rapper has a new outlook on life as he’s bounced back from setbacks but also in tunnel vision on his musical journey and finding success. Roddy’s current EP couldn’t have come at a better time, as he admittedly shares that he feels people often forget about his level of artistry, which is now on a larger scale and he’s stepped out of his regional Los Angeles upbringing.
The rapper is definitely working to maintain respect in the game and continue to level up and a few artists and his peers have looked out for him in a way that he gives people like 21 Savage, Kodak Black, the late Nipsey Hussle, Mustard, Post Malone and more their due flowers. Roddy has learned a great deal from his peers, more notably the lessons he’s taken away from Hussle and his close friend Posty. Roddy states that he’s learned to be unapologetically himself from Post and he learned about securing energy from the late Nip.
Roddy Ricch goes on to speak on the recording process for ‘Big 3,’ his recent New York City arrest, which he explains was a misunderstanding, hopes to collab with Ariana Grande, and much more.
