Roddy Ricch teased what appears to be his next full-length album on his Instagram Story Monday night (Sept. 13). The Compton-born rapper shared a photo of his Apple Music library, which included an 18-song, 51-minute-long project called Live Life Fa$t.

“I’m livin n the studio,” Roddy wrote in another upload. “Doing this shit for all the mf who love the music. Doing this shit for all the mf who hate us too.”

The 22-year-old added, “I got my flame bac.”

Live Life Fa$t, Roddy’s sophomore album, will mark the official follow-up to the rapper’s 2019 debut effort, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial. The record peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won Album of the Year at the 2020 BET Awards. Earlier this year, Roddy revealed to Complex that his sophomore project will be “more vulnerable” than his previous hit-filled album.

“I’m going to bring fans into my world more. I’m learning the balance,” he told the outlet 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.”

The last fans heard about Roddy’s sophomore album came via a tweet from the rapper in August of 2020. At the time, Roddy said he was working on a “masterpiece,” but was in no rush to drop new music.

“Could I drop a new album right now? Yes. Will I? No,” he said. “It’s really not about it being ready or not ready. It’s more about the timing. I really just drop when I feel like it. The next album is going to be a full blown masterpiece. A real idea. A real body of work.”

Back in June, Roddy returned with his latest single, “Late at Night.” He also recently appeared on Kanye West’s Donda track, “Pure Souls.”
