How Did Roddy Ricch Become Rich?
Hailing from Compton, California, Rodrick Wayne Moore Jr. was born on the 22nd of October, 1998. At the age of eight, Moore had shown interest in music by casually rapping; however, at that young age, he was too occupied by his commitment to being a member of the Crip gang in their area. His affiliation with the gang caused his mother to kick him out at the age of 15. Moore started to hit the streets and make ends meet by doing side hustles and rapping as a side gig. Eventually, he got into some serious delinquency that brought him into jail for weeks. After this life-changing event, Moore decided to focus on making music, experimenting, and recording music in his room at 16.
In 2015, Moore started uploading his music on SoundCloud. Two years later, he released his debut album, “Feed Tha Streets” on the platform. With over 17 million streams in 2021, “Fucc It Up” is the most popular song on this album. This album caught the attention of some of the famous rappers Meek Mill and Nipsey Hussle.
Considering the success of his first drop, he released another album entitled “Feed Tha Streets II” in November 2018. His second album contained some of his hit songs like “Every Season” and his considerably breakthrough song, “Die Young”. It sold over half a million copies and earned gold from RIAA. It topped the charts in the UK, US, Canada, and the Netherlands. It was believed that Moore earned about $350,000 from this release. As of 2021, it has a whopping 120 million streams on Spotify and more than 120 million views on YouTube.
In 2019, Moore signed a million-dollar contract with Atlantic Records. He began collaborating with other musicians this year.

This album has another of his biggest hits, “The Box” which was also certified gold and platinum. As of 2021, this song has already over a billion streams on Spotify. On the record, this album has become the longest-running number-one debut rap album in the entire US. It was reported that the rapper earned more than half a million dollars in this release.
In just more than two years, Moore was able to release a studio album and two mixtapes which were all certified gold and platinum.
