1. He’s a young star within the hip-hop world.
Rodrick Wayne Moore Jr. grew up in Compton, California. He started rapping at a very young age and began his career as a teen.
“I bought some equipment, and then I started recording real heavy, in my room, when I was like 16,” he told an Interviewer in 2018. “I was just playin’ with it.”
His favorite hobby then soon turned to him putting out his first mixtape, Feed Tha Streets, in 2017. The sequel, Feed Tha Streets II, was his big break, from his single from “Die Young,” released in July 2018, which blew up online then eventually became a double Platinum album. Other songs such as “Every Season,” “Project Dreams,” “Start with Me,” “The Box,” and “High Fashion” (featuring his fellow Savage X Fenty performer, Mustard) were other very successful hits of his.
2. Roddy Ricch is a low-key type of guy.
In a 2018 interview of Roddy Ricch, he said, “I don’t really partake in the celebrity aspect of it all, I don’t go to parties, I don’t hang out, I don’t really talk to nobody. I don’t really consider myself a celebrity,” he continues. “When the world catches me outside, then it’s like, ‘Oh shit, it’s Roddy!’ I’m cool about it, as long as my personal space isn’t threatened. It’s funny, I’m not a celebrity, I guess I’m just known.”
3. Roddy says he could have been in the NBA.
In another 2018 interview of Roddy Ricch, he said, “I used to be like Michael Jordan in high school, no cap, I was a point guard. I was more like an Allen Iverson type of n***a, I ain’t gon lie. Jordan was a dunking type of n—a. I was more like that cross ***** up, breaking-his-ankles type situation.”
