“You got to understand that at this point, I’m only two mixtapes out,”, “Y'all just now beginning to see me and we gon' grow together.” The speed with which Roddy Ricch has made his name as one of the most important voices in LA rap is nearly unprecedented, but the specific leaps aren’t difficult to trace. His breakout tape Feed Tha Streets II-only the second one he made-features London On Da Track-produced “Die Young,” the song that gave him his first influx of attention. He’d follow that up by supplying fallen LA hero and friend Nipsey Hussle with an earworm of a chorus for “Racks in the Middle.” And then came “Ballin',” the runaway smash from Mustard’s Perfect Ten album that sent Ricch well on his way to becoming a household name.

Whatever's next for the Compton MC will likely come from his debut album, Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, a project that features continued ruminations on success (“Perfect Time”), dalliances with spirituality (“Prayers to the Trap God”), and a fiery recounting of how far he's come as an artist and a human being (“Intro”). According to Ricch, it's the result of years of reflection both in and out of the studio. “I feel like progress really just comes from within,” he says. “Coming out of the streets, being a millionaire, and just knowing the different struggles that are in different people-you'll feel the progress because I'm progressing. This ain't me trying to rap, it's just me just talking to you.” Below, Ricch details some of the factors that helped him toward the project's completion.
