Rodrick Wayne Moore, Jr.[2] (born October 22, 1998), known professionally as Roddy Ricch, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is signed to Atlantic Records.[3] In November 2018, he released the mixtape, Feed Tha Streets II, which has peaked at number 67 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Early life[edit]

Rodrick Wayne Moore Jr., was born on October 22, 1998 in Compton, California, where he was also raised.[4] Some of his family is from Nigeria , and he also spent time living in Atlanta, Georgia in his youth.[5] Ricch started rapping as young as 8, but he began making beats in earnest at age 16.[4][6]

Career[edit]

In November 2017, he released his first mixtape, Feed Tha Streets, which featured songs like "Chase Tha Bag," "Hoodricch," and "Fucc It Up." The tape earned him praise from established rappers like Meek Mill, Nipsey Hussle, DJ Mustard and 03 Greedo. In March 2018, he released an EP entitled Be 4 Tha Fame. In May of that year, Nipsey Hussle brought Ricch out as his guest at a PowerHouse concert in Los Angeles.[4][5]

In July 2018, he released the London on da Track-produced single, "Die Young," which he had written the night Florida rapper XXXTentacion died.[4][7] The song—which was dedicated, in part, to the late rapper—and its music video would go on to accumulate 11 million views on YouTube and 8 million streams on Spotify.[8] In August 2018, he released the single "Ricch Forever," produced by DJ Bugsy.[9] That month, Meek Mill released a preview of a collaborative track with Ricch “Project Dreams” before that he made a track with Nipsey Hussle, which was “Racks In The Middle.”[10]

In October 2018, Meek Mill brought Ricch out as his guest at a PowerHouse concert in Philadelphia. Mill also gifted him a "Dreamchasers" chain, prompting speculation that Ricch would be signed to Mill's Dreamchasers record label imprint.[4][11] On November 2, 2018, Ricch released his second mixtape, Feed Tha Streets II. The album, which features the singles "Die Young" and "Every Season,"[11][12] has thus far peaked at number 67 on the Billboard 200 chart[13] and at number 36 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[14] Later in the month, American electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello previewed a new track featuring Ricch.[15]

In June 2019, Ricch appeared on the cover of XXL magazine as XXL Freshman Class of 2019 along with 10 other artists. His freestyle was considered by many people to be the greatest of the 2019 class. [16]
