Roddy Ricch Speaks On Social Media Pressures

Roddy Ricch Speaks On Social Media Pressures

During the latest episode of RapCaviar Presents on Hulu, Roddy Ricch spoke candidly about his often documented perspective on social media. Of course, given that his breakout album was titled Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, many might not be surprised at this revelation. However, the Compton artist is certainly a rapper who had to deal with these pressures quite quickly. Moreover, "The Box" is one of the biggest rap hits of the past couple of years, and catapulted him to an insanely high-profile status. While he's grateful for the success he's seen, he also had to deal with the pitfalls of fame much more quickly than most.

"A lot of people don't have to deal with more than 10 people," the hitmaker said during the episode, aptly titled "The Gift and The Curse." Given the mostly mixed reception to his follow-up after such a huge hit, he has a unique and hardened perspective on living up to expectations set by others. "So just imagine seven million that see your posts every day... Jesus only had 12 disciples, and I ain't nowhere near Jesus... Let me be great, man."

Roddy Ricch Reflects On "The Gift & The Curse" Of Social Media

Despite his feelings on social media and reception to his output, the 24-year-old continues to shine and stamp his name into the game. Recently, he released "I Remember" with Kodak Black and Internet Money, and also collaborated with Blxst on "Passionate." Unfortunately, though, his gifts as of late also came with some curses. For example, he received a copyright lawsuit over his smash hit "The Box" at the end of 2022, although it's unknown how much it will really impact the song or his success.

Also, there's the point of multiple fan and paparazzi interactions that had people unjustly criticizing him for reacting strongly. It seems that Roddy is more aware and critical of the fact that celebrities like him get their privacy intruded on by people running up on them for pictures or statements. While it's never easy to see someone lash out, it's also completely understandable. As such, hopefully Roddy's communication of these feelings can make fans think twice about judging how famous people might react to these scenarios, and how much we truly connect with them on social media. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Roddy Ricch.
