On “Tip Toe” and working with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie:
Roddy Ricch: When we first met each other it was just more so just conversation to understand where each other was from, understanding his perspective on how he was raised and what
he was brought up doing and he just got to hear a little bit of what I got into and we just had a bond over that. And then it kind of just grew from that. For me, it’s never been a thing. I used to look at it like, if I’m doing music with somebody, obviously they did it for a purpose, which obviously all the time that wasn’t true, but that’s just how I had looked at it.
On success and money:
Roddy Ricch: Once I felt like me and my guys had a special story to tell, then it was only right for me to be the voice of that. You know what I’m saying? When I first started making music, it was just because certain things that I did or certain things I’d been through, I hadn’t heard. I mean, you hear about different dudes struggling, but you don’t hear people talking about, admitting I used to sleep on the floor, now I wake up on a jet. You don’t hear people admitting that. You know what I’m saying? I actually, I didn’t really give a fuck, so I tell people whatever I felt and that’s what just made people really feel me, because it was like he don’t give a fuck. He done been in the same situations I feel like I still am connected to who I used to be, but at the same time I just leveled up and I grew. I don’t know. I still go through, really, to this day-It be more problems when you got money then when you don’t. Your problems be a little more simple when you ain’t got no money, because it’s like, you ain’t got no money, you got to sit your ass down. You know what I’m saying? You can’t do shit. You feel me? The only thing you could really do is get in trouble. I feel like I’m just put in this position to just show my people how to do this and really just try to put as many people into a position as I can, without actually enabling anybody. I really just show my people that it’s more to the money. We spend it. Yeah, we be having it. I mean, far past that just showing them how to start their own businesses. It’s kind of a thin line of helping and enabling.
On his album coming Dec 6 and revealing Meek Mill will be on it:
Roddy Ricch: I ain’t even really stepped into my prime at all. I’m really just growing every day. I’m glad that my fans feel like I ain’t really gave them that or anybody feel like I didn’t give them that,
because they just show that I’m just on a constant progress, you know what I’m saying? I just really just want people to just be connected with me as I go along this journey of my life. The album’s coming on December 6th, man. Please excuse me for being antisocial. It’s going to have a couple of features on it. I mean, most definitely. Me and Meek ain’t really had our time to really just shine on a record together. So for sure, me and
Meek, we the only two on the song. I mean, coming from where he came from and just really stepping into the businessman role, for real, having that ownership and equity in everything he doing.
