During his Billboard cover shoot, Roddy Ricch took some time to play Fishing For Answers, as he shared his favorite Kobe Bryant memory, discussed the inspiration behind his chart-topping single “The Box,” and more.
Pulling questions out of a fish bowl, Ricch is asked to share his best memory of Kobe Bryan, to which he names the time when the basketball star scored 81 points in a game. “Me and my grandpa watched that game together,” he says. “It was a crazy moment.”
Asked what inspired his song “The Box,” which is currently sitting atop the Hot 100 chart for a fifth week, Ricch recalls that it was six in the morning when he made the track.
