It’s officially here, Roddy Ricch’s LIVE LIFE FAST!
Coming on Friday, Ricch shared a movie-style poster unveiling the guest features and producers for his new project.
Live Life Fast will feature Future, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Gunna, Kodak Black, Fivio Foreign and Migos’ Takeoff, as well as Jamie Foxx, Ty Dolla $ign, Alex Isley and Bibi Bourelly. Roddy also recruited heavyweight producers including Mustard, Southside, Boi-1da, Cardo, Wheezy, TM88, Ronny J, Kenny Beats, Tarentino, and Rex Kudo.
“They say you make your first album and you got your whole life to make your first album,” Ricch said. “Your whole life and you talk about everything. But like with your second album, you got from your first album to your second album to make that shit and talk about mainly what went on between them two. If you a real artist, you ain’t just throwing shit out. It’s like you got that time. It’s like that’s really what I wanted to touch on when I’m talking about this shit. How was it from understanding where it was going to like now and really giving my fans a piece of knowledge on that and just trying to just drop certain science on them, just talk certain talk.”
Roddy has released one single from Live Life Fast with “Late At Night,” and recently shared a short film for the album’s opening track, “Live Life Fast (Intro),” which features Ty Dolla $ign.
Live Life Fast is the follow-up to Roddy’s 2019 debut album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won multiple awards on its way to becoming certified double platinum.
“With my next project, I’m going to be more vulnerable,” he said. “I’m going to bring fans into my world more. I’m learning the balance. Like, OK, I’m not on Instagram, so I feel like I’ve got to bring them into my life more so they can feel me a little more. Coming off one of the biggest albums I could’ve done, I feel like taking them back to the basics with me. There’s all the old fans I had when I first started rapping, and these new fans that I got since the big album and Grammys and everything. So I want to bridge the gap between my old fans and my new fans.”
Before Roddy Ricch reveals his new album LiveLifeFast, Roddy blessed fans with a first look!
He dropped a short film to introduce the album, as Ricch delivers a moving monologue before speeding down a rural road in his signature Rolls Royce truck.
"My OG P told me, the goal in life was to have fast money, fast b*tches and fast cars. But the consequences behind that life is glory. But all fast things must slow down," he laments. "And at some point, life will force you to stop. His result was 26 years in a federal penitentiary. I've realized I've lived fast. I want to take my time. Time is the most expensive luxury in the world. It's something you spend, and never get back. But you never know how much you have left."
