Roddy Ricch has officially earned six additional Grammy nominations after yesterdays’s announcement for the 2021 Grammy Awards.
“The Box,” a standout hit and a 2020 anthem from his critically-acclaimed debut album, “Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial,” earns three nominations in Best Rap Song, Best Melodic Rap Performance and Song of the Year. His feature on DaBaby’s “Rockstar” also garnered three nominations in Best Rap Song, Best Melodic Rap Performance and Record of the Year.
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held on January 31, 2021.
Wise beyond his years and eloquently effective, Grammy -winning Roddy Ricch clearly and concisely conveys truth by way of cinematic rhymes and catchy hooks. The Compton-based MC has quickly become a major musical force, a fact made clear by a 2019 Grammy Award win in Best Rap Performance for Nipsey Hussle’s “Racks In The Middle (ft. Roddy Rich & Hit-Boy).”
Ricch’s debut album, “Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial,” showcases how he separates himself from his contemporary counterparts… taking slow, measured and calculated steps to achieve his goals. Being the quietest in the room isn’t a sign of weakness, rather Ricch has turned it into his greatest weapon of success.
The album made an explosive chart debut upon its December 2019 release, arriving at #1 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 while also topping the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums rankings.
