Carrying Compton on his back, Roddy has surpassed the “regional sound’ that although many past acts from Cali may have found much success in, the “Twin” rapper’s recent tour with Post Malone has catapulted Ricch’s stature in hip-hop and pop culture. Both Roddy and Post have become a great duo, as Posty has somewhat been able to take Ricch under his wing, allowing Roddy to take in principles of humility and never switching up.
Discussing ‘Feed Tha Streets 3,’ Roddy touches on the trilogy of mixtapes, which he considers albums, and details the connection of releasing the project consistently in November during the start of the holiday season, where he can actually give back to his community with music and charity efforts. Roddy also speaks on the featured track “Letter To My Son,” in which he says he wanted the song to stand as a part of his legacy and be a testament to his song about expressing human emotion.
Roddy Ricch goes on to speak about important aspects of his career that he’s learned from the late Nipsey Hussle, names his favorite Wu-Tang Clan member, where he goes to center himself and find peace, and much more.
