“Even though that’s where I’m from and that’s where I’m at. I was also traveling a lot when I grew up. My first trip somewhere out the state was Chicago and it just went on from there.” – Roddy Ricch
“Sometimes it was family. My great-grandma is still alive; she’s from Louisiana so I spent time there. I got family in Atlanta, Mississippi, New York, all over the place. Sometimes I’d be out there trying to make something happen.” – Roddy Ricch
“Nobody from my projects, though. You got Kendrick Lamar but he’s more on the Westside, as in by Centennial [High School]. You might not understand if you’re not from here. YG is from another side. I met Kendrick when I was younger but he’s not really the flashy type. You’d never know if he had a dollar or a million dollars.” – Roddy Ricch
