For the latest installment of Audiomack's Trap Symphony series, Roddy Ricch has provided lavish renditions of some of his best material. The live performance series has seen the likes of Migos, Chief Keef, and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie work alongside an eight-piece orchestra with some captivating results. Roddy Ricch's episode is no different, bringing a sense of grandiosity to Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial highlights and some of his older tracks, too.
He starts off with a fresh take on "Intro," before transitioning to a performance of the Gunna-featuring "Start Wit Me." He follows that up with the Scott Storch-produced "Down Below" from Feed tha Streets II, which lends itself very well to the orchestral treatment in particular. He then addresses the audience directly, explaining just how much his song "Die Young" means to him after he lost one of his closest friends.
He closes it out with a minimal arrangement of his Mustard collaboration, "Ballin." Accompanied by nothing but a piano and the audience singing back the song, it's a fitting end to a performance that highlights Ricch's songwriting chops. The episode of Trap Symphony arrives after Ricch had a breakthrough year as he topped the Billboard 200 album chart with Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, and also earned three nominations at the 2020 Grammys, including Best Rap Song for Nipsey Hussle's "Racks in the Middle."
