Roddy Ricch is gearing up to release his sophomore album, Live Life Fast. On Wednesday (Dec. 1), the 23-year-old Compton native announced that his next full-length effort is dropping later this month on Dec. 17.
Roddy has been teasing his sophomore effort for months now, most recently posting a picture of his Apple Music library, which included the 18-track, 51-minute Live Life Fast.
“I got my flame bac,” he added.
Live Life Fast will mark the official follow-up to Roddy’s major 2019 debut, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won Album of the Year at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards. Earlier this year, Roddy spoke to Complex about his upcoming sophomore album and said the effort would be “more vulnerable” than his hit-filled debut.
“I’m going to bring fans into my world more. I’m learning the balance,” he said in March. “Like, ok, I’m not on Instagram, so I feel like I’ve got to bring them into my life more so they can feel me a little more.”
“Coming off one of the biggest albums I could’ve done, I feel like taking them back to the basics with me,” he continued. “There’s all the old fans I had when I first started rapping and these new fans that I got since the big album and Grammys and everything. So, I want to bridge the gap between my old fans and my new fans. That’s what I’m on a mission to do with this next situation that I’m working on.”
