Roddy Ricch is a rapper out of Compton, California. He spent time living in Atlanta, Georgia, which explains why he raps with a distinct Southern flair.
Ricch's breakout single, "Die Young," was written the night rapper XXXTentacion died. It accumulated over 8 million streams on Spotify and was included on his second mixtape, Feed Tha Streets II, which peaked at #68 on the US album chart.
That song's success attracted the interest of Meek Mill, who recruited Ricch to spit a verse on his Championships track "Splash Warning," which bought him his first Hot 100 ink. The Philly rapper also signed the Compton rapper up to his Dreamchasers label.
