Roddy Ricch Says “F*ck NYPD” While Performing At Hot 97 Summer Jam
Roddy Ricch may not have been able to perform some of his biggest singles at this year’s Governors Ball Festival owing to an unexpected arrest by the New York Police Department, but the 23-year-old still had time to make it to his Hot 97 Summer Jam event after being freed.
The City Girls, Shenseea, Cardi B, Yung Bleu, Saucy Santana, and NLE Choppa were among those tapped to perform at the New Jersey event, yet Ricch’s performance was one of the most anticipated, since fans weren’t sure whether he’d show up at all, and secondly, if he’d address his arrest.
He did, much to the delight of the audience. “New Jersey, are you ready?” he questioned the crowd, who erupted in applause. “Can I hear everyone in here said ‘F*ck NYPD,'” he said, encouraging guests to join in the chant before launching into song.
During his act, the Compton native conveyed another obvious statement by stressing the lyrics of his collaboration with DaBaby, “ROCKSTAR.” “Brand new Lamborghini, f*ck a cop car / With the pistol on my hip like I’m a cop (Yeah, yeah, yeah) / Have you ever met a real n*gga rockstar? (Yeah) / This ain’t no guitar, bitch, this a Glock (Woo).”
Roddy was photographed looking as joyful (and stylish) as ever after his release from prison, undoubtedly glad to be a free man and get back to his craft.
