It was a long waited and much anticipated for American rapper Roddy Ricch at First Ave in Minneapolis on Tuesday February 11. The grammy award winning artist for best rapper performance in 2020 was showcasing his latest album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
Upcoming hip hop artist Cuuhraig opened the night and took the stage as one of the only other artist to tour with Ricch. Cuuhraig was ready to perform his debut album “Motivation For The Islands.
The valiant YouTube star hip hop artist and music producer who is also known as Roddick
Wayne Moore Jr. is headlining his own tour starting in Seattle and ending in Denver, Colorado and making appearances this summer in the United Kingdom with A$AP Rocky and Skepta.
The throng of 18+ people filled up the venue on this cold night couldn’t get enough of what he has to offer. The hip hop star entered the stage showing off a Minnesota Vikings Kirk Cousins jersey while showing his skills on the keyboards just before stopping to pay tribute to former NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
The Compton native knows what his fans wanted and delivered it ten fold. The sold out show was full of energy with fans shaking the ground when he would perform his top hit “The Box” multiple times throughout the night, and let me tell you, it was one awesome display of a light show.
