With Roddy Ricch gearing up to unleash his long-awaited debut album, Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, on Dec. 6, the Compton rapper released a final single to kick off the holiday week with the fiery "Tip Toe," featuring an assist from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.
The tune premiered on Beats 1 as Zane Lowe's World Record for Monday (Nov. 25), which saw Roddy FaceTime in to discuss how the track came to be. "When we first met each other, it was just more so just [a] conversation to understand where each other was from, understanding his perspective on how he was raised and what he was brought up doing," the 21-year-old said. "He just got to hear a little bit of what I got into, and we just had a bond over that. And then it kind of just grew from that."
A coinciding visual also arrived with the release of "Tip Toe," which was expertly shot by Christian Breslauer and filled with slimy special effects. Roddy walks through fire to run the trap house and is pulled over by cops with his car filled to the brim with purple drank.
Roddy also notched the first Grammy nominations of his career thanks to his contributions to "Racks in the Middle" alongside the late Nipsey Hussle and Hit-Boy The track will compete in the best rap song category.
Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial drops Dec. 6 and will feature Meek Mill and Ty Dolla $ign. "I ain't even really stepped into my prime at all. I'm really just growing every day," he described of this stage in his career. "I just really just want people to just be connected with me as I go along this journey of my life."
