Roddy Ricch Calls Trying To Mimic Jay-Z’s Career “Almost Impossible”

Published: Thursday 3rd Dec 2020 by Ryan

Despite being on top of the music game this year, thanks to his hit single ‘The Box,’ Roddy Ricch isn’t trying to follow the blueprint left by greats such as Jay-Z.

The ‘High Fashion’ rapper recently revealed to Variety that it is “almost impossible” to mimic a career as successful as Jay-Z’s.

His words below:

“Someone can inspire you musically because music is a sound, but trying to mimic somebody’s career, that’s almost impossible. I could never say that I want my career to be like, let’s just say, Jay-Z. Because Jay-Z at 22…did we even know Jay-Z at 22? I think Jay-Z put his first album out at, what, 27? “

“I don’t even know. I’m 22 coming off two No. 1s. It’s just a different time. It’s like thinking about Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant—you can’t compare them, because they came up at three different points in time, they had to play against different people, people’s mentality was different. So I just do my own thing, honestly. I can’t say, ‘I want this man’s life,’ or ‘I want this man’s career,’ because that’s envy, and envy is a sin.”

Later on during the interview, he went on to reveal that he currently has no plans to follow up ‘Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial’ anytime soon.

While Ricch may insist that he has no intentions to copy another artist, he is certainly doing fine blazing a trail all his own.

    He’s right streaming is making things wayyyy easier for this new generation so it’s not fair to compare them to legends who worked they asses off

    I cant take a streaming artist seriously. We used to go after school or work on Tuesdays to buy albums for $10-$20 and they still sold like crazy. Nowadays artists get attention because their fan base is buying the same thing multiple times.
