Roddy Ricch says fans didn’t listen to Nipsey Hussle’s “Victory Lap” album, until it was a “trend” to listen to Nipsey’s music

Roddy Ricch says people listened to Nipsey Hussle’s album as a trend

It’s been almost three years now, since Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in his hometown of Los Angeles. Nipsey is regarded by many as one of the best west coast rappers of this generation, as well as someone who impacted the LA community in so many positive ways.

Roddy Ricch, who is from nearby Compton, recently appeared on DJ Akademiks’ “Off The Record” podcast, and spoke about Nipsey. He emphasized how people weren’t listening to Nipsey’s 2019 Grammy-nominated “Victory Lap” album, until it became a trend to do so. Roddy added that he and others listened to this project, as soon as it came out.

“N***as don’t want to say it but I’ma say it, when the album came out, I didn’t really hear a lot of n***as really playing this sh*t until it was a trend to play his music. We was playing this sh*t, forwards and backwards, as soon as it came out, just like any other Nipsey Hussle album because we from the West and we support that sh*t and we know what he talking about, we understand what he talking about. N***as ain’t bump Victory Lap until it was a trend and I’ma stand firm on that. N***as wasn’t Nipsey Hussle riders until that shit was a trend to be.”  

Victory Lap was nominated for Best Rap Album. It featured hits such as “Rap N*ggas” and “Last Time I Checced,” ft. YG. It debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, and is platinum in the US. In 2019, Roddy collaborated on Nipsey’s final single, “Racks In The Middle.”

In December, Roddy also released his highly anticipated sophomore album, “Live Life Fast.” That saw a number six debut, as it was led by the “Late At Night” single.
