Roddy Rich - The famous American musician Roddy Ricch, despite his young age, managed to prove himself not just as a singer or rapper. He himself writes the lyrics for his songs and produces other musicians. He managed to achieve popularity by 2018 with the release of another album, one of the songs of which took leading positions in the popular charts of America.
Roddy Rich was born in the fall of 1998 in Compton, Los Angeles County, California. His exact nationality is unknown. There, the future singer spent the first years of his biography, then lived for some time in Atlanta, Georgia.
From the age of eight, the boy began to show himself creatively, however, he sang only at home, chose songs from then popular artists, and beat the rhythm on his own, using various household items. Then he did not take creativity seriously, but his outlook on life changed dramatically after being sent to prison, where Roddy Ricch spent 2 weeks.
At school, the musician studied poorly, constantly arguing with teachers and conflicting with the director. At the age of 16, Roddy Rich finally realized that he wanted to connect life with music, and bought basic musical equipment.
Not having a place for a studio, he installed it at home and began to try to record the first tracks. He invented the texts himself, in them he told the story of his life. In his youth, he even had a chance to perform on stage a couple of times, but then the rapper was swallowed up by street life, and for a while he moved away from music. Only in 2017, the young man returned to recording equipment.
Roddy has pages on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, where he shares fresh photos from life and footage from concerts and during the recording of songs with subscribers. The position of an artist obliges him to maintain profiles, although the rapper himself does not like social networks too much, because he is too focused on music and wants to be known as a musician in the first place.
Subscribers do not know anything about Ricch's personal life; the singer tries to keep this information out of the public eye. Although the girls visiting his accounts more than once noted the rapper's visual appeal. It should be noted that he looks athletic and fit (height 170 cm, weight 68 kg).
In the fall of 2017, Roddy released his first successful mixtape, Feed Tha Streets, which included songs Chase Tha Bag, Hoodricch and Fucc It Up. He received many positive reviews and attracted the rapper's attention from artists such as Meek Mill, Nipsey Hussle, DJ Mustard and 03 Greedo. Following this, Ricch's video for the track Fucc It Up was released on the popular video hosting YouTube.
When representatives of Atlantic Records heard this song, they were very surprised that the guy from Compton sounded like Atlanta. The senior vice president of Dallas Martin immediately invited him to the studio and offered Ricch to record 3 songs. It was clear that the rapper knows what he wants: he writes songs every day, listens to people's opinions and is open to advice.
In 2018, the musician released a mini-album Be 4 Tha Fame, which was well received by the public. And in the spring of the same year, American rapper Nipsey Hussle invited Roddy to perform at his concert, which was held in Los Angeles. Real popularity came to his biography a little later.
In the summer of 2018, the singer released the track Die Young, dedicated to his childhood friend. According to the author, the composition was written on the night of XXXTentacion's death and contains a story about the desire to live at full capacity. Later, he shot a video for the song, which in the first months of being on YouTube gained 80 million views and 120 million downloads.
