In a recent interview with Complex, Roddy Ricch explains the lesson learned from Kanye West after meeting him.
“I pulled up on him in Calabasas, He showed me there’s more to life than just music. He taught me [about] really building empires. You’ve got clothes, or you’ve got a drink, or you’ve got this or that, and it’s all attached to you. He was building things that don’t got nothing to do with music, with different rooms having different ideas. Even building up a community or a civilization that can start and become something else. That’s a crazy thing to do. Just growing your own produce, and all these different things… It opened my mind.”
When asked about his favorite album, Roddy named Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “Mainly because of everything he put into the album. Just having all the different types of elements to it, and making it one body of work, that’s commendable”, said Roddy.
