“Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial” is Roddy Ricch’s debut studio album and I’ve spent my weekend listening to it, analysing and making conclusions on what I think about it.
The album is a beautiful body of work, the songs are very well produced and they all tell a story in their own ways. My personal favourite songs are ‘War Baby’, ‘High Fashion’ and ‘Prayers to the Trap God’. Each fan will have their own opinion and their own favourites but seeing and learning about Roddy’s come up story and knowing the struggles of a lot of young black men. ‘War Baby’ was a beautiful inclusion to the album and it also happens to be the outro, leaving listeners with what in my opinion is the best produced track on the album with the choir, the music and the lyrics all making a beautiful song.
Roddy Ricch began to move up in the rap scene just over 1 year ago when his hit single ‘Die Young’ blew up all over the world. It was the track of the summer 2018 no doubt and it still goes off when played today. Roddy signed to Atlantic Records shortly after the summer in November and released the mixtape ‘Feed The Streets II’.
However, Roddy took to his instagram last week to ask fans to guess who was his last feature on the track ‘Anti-Social’ which was meant to be in the album but on final release was not included. Definitely a song that I will be looking out for soon and I wonder why it was not included.
With features including Meek Mill, Mustard and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie), this album is due to do very well and I’m overall impressed with the album.
