Roddy Ricch Urges Pap to Film His ‘Personal Work’
Roddy Ricch didn’t feel covered by the media during a recent personal outing, and he let the paparazzi know it!
The three-minute video, shared by Hollywood fix on December 29, showing the Compton artist shopping in West Hollywood. Footage shows Roddy, dressed in black with a headscarf, a security guard and a third man loading a black vehicle. One of the items appears to be a brand new car seat.
Zoom in and out, documenting a close-up of Roddy’s purchase and his assistance in loading it. Then, about 40 seconds into the video, the cameraman decided to approach Ricch.
The security guard stopped pap when he tried to greet Ricch or approach the back of the car. But, pap ignored the guardian’s consent. Instead, he kept trying to get the rapper’s attention – howling about seeing Roddy recently at a concert.
“Yes, man, he is doing something for his family, man, this is a private matter,” said the guard.
The cameraman persisted in recording Roddy until the artist asked to be left alone
The father gave him a ‘great’ as if he understood that he should stay away. He then began recounting the story of the XXL concert, praising Roddy’s performance. Again, the guard tried to tell the cameraman to step back, saying, “Meet him another time because he’s doing something private.”
The man crossed the street but continued to record and photograph Roddy until they made eye contact. Then Roddy crossed the street, motioning for the father to put the camera down.
As Ricch approached, the father dropped the video camera on the floor and began the story of the concert again. Ricch skips the narration, instead asking the father to turn off the camera so they can talk like men. The cameraman didn’t comply, instead telling Ricch that “he was tripping over” and needed to relax. He also told Roddy that he wasn’t the only media spot documenting him, but Roddy hit back.
“You were the first to step above me. You step on me bro. Don’t step on me n *** a. This is real life, don’t step on me. You get in my car, man. I’m handling my personal affairs, you’re stepping above me, man. This is not that. I’m really living. Leave me alone, really. Leave me alone!
Back in September, Kodak Black also checked on another man to record him – citing the robbery and murder of PNB Rock a few days earlier.
“Okay, look, buddy. Don’t record me, man. What are you doing,” Kodak asked. “You’re Live, but you just put the phone in my car, buddy. Don’t do that… You tripped, boy. Let’s go, buddy. You are tripping. You don’t see that happened with PnB [Rock]? Don’t you see that just happened to PnB Rock? So why are you recording me? … God forbid some crazy s**ts [happen]. So what? Come on, buddy. You’re tripping.”
