RODDY RICCH SAYS HE CONFRONTED GRAMMYS OVER LIL UZI VERT & LIL BABY SNUBS

RODDY RICCH SAYS HE CONFRONTED GRAMMYS OVER LIL UZI VERT & LIL BABY SNUBS

Roddy Ricch is one of the new generation’s emerging stars, and he’s already positioned himself as the genre’s future leader. His contemporaries who have paved the road for him are already legends in their own right, and he’s fighting for them when the Recording Academy doesn’t care.

Roddy Ricch spoke about this new generation of artists having a special bond while carving their own lanes to success during a visit to Kevin Durant’s The ETCs Podcast. Roddy wondered how the Grammys could overlook Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Baby, two of the most well-known rappers in the game today.

When asked how the vibe was between all the younger rappers, Roddy Ricch told KD, “I feel like it’s more for sure more of a cooperation since we run into each other more.” “However, I feel like everyone has their own lane, their own thing they do, you know what I mean?” ‘Y’all ain’t nominating Uzi for [Best Rap Album],’ I was tripping on the Grammys when I said to them, ‘Y’all ain’t nominating Uzi for [Best Rap Album].’

“Y’all ain’t nominating Lil Baby, even if he’s your favorite?” I feel like I’m tripping because everyone has their own lane, and it should be discussed, discussed more because I feel like the n-ggas now that are doing shit like, no disrespect, we’re truly breaking barriers.”

Roddy Ricch is most likely referring to Lil Baby’s My Turn and Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake, both of which were snubbed for Best Rap Album at the 2019 and 2020 Grammy Awards, respectively.

Roddy’s comments came only days after the release of his second studio album, Live Life Fast, on December 17. The album has gotten a lackluster response, which is reflected in the sales figures.

Roddy Ricch’s Live Life Fast is predicted to sell 64,000 album-equivalent copies in its first week, according to a tweet from Akademiks. That’s a far cry from the 101,000 people that showed up for Roddy’s debut album Excuse Me for Being Antisocial in 2019.

Cole, the Chicks, Illenium, Tool, Flume, 21 Savage, Stevie Nicks, Machine Gun Kelly, and Roddy Ricch. The event date is from June 16 through June 19 this year 2022.

The just announced lineup is almost-complete careful selection from the set of performances slated for Bonnaroo’s rescheduled Labor Day weekend dates in 2021 before the event was canceled entirely due to flooded festival grounds.

That event featured the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, and Lizzo, while Bonnaroo 2022 boasts Disclosure, Bleachers, Japanese Breakfast, Lord Huron, and Isaiah Rashad. The weekend also includes Porter Robinson, Chvrches, Judah & the Lion, 100 gecs, Sowthai, Ludacris, Ashe, Benee, and Joy Oladokun, among others.

This all ends on Sunday with performances by Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Wallows, Coin, Tinashe, Tierra Whack, Fletcher, Herbie Hancock, and more.

Bonnaroo Lineup

Last August, Nicks — who was scheduled to perform at the Jazz Aspen Festival, BottleRock Napa Valley, Austin City Limits, and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival — pulled all remaining festival appearances for the year citing a rise in Covid-19 cases throughout the United States.

 

“While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the five performances I had planned for 2021,” she wrote in a statement shared to social media. “Because singing and performing have been my whole life, my primary goal is to keep healthy so I can continue singing for the next decade or longer. I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.”
