After being cleared on gun charges, Compton rapper Roddy Ricch gets back to the music with his new EP titled “The Big 3” and dropped 3 new songs titled “Real Talk,” “Tootsies” and “No Mop” via Bird Vision/Atlantic Records.
“The Big 3” marks Ricch’s first new solo music since last year’s chart-topping sophomore album “Live Life Fast,” which didn’t get much positive feedback, and is highlighted by the lead single, “Real Talk.” An official music video is currently in production and will premiere soon.
“Live Life Fast” did numbers, and featured a star-studded line-up including Future, Fivio Foreign, Gunna, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, Lil Baby, and Jamie Foxx, but many fans were unhappy with the album, some calling it “mid.”
Produced by longtime collaborator Mustard, “Real Talk” was heralded earlier this month during the Grammy Award-winning artist’s show-stopping performance at the annual HOT 97 Summer Jam at East Rutherford, NJ’s MetLife Stadium. This summer has also seen Ricch light up stages at such events as Washington, DC’s Something In The Water and Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
