Looks like Roddy Ricch got affected by the trolls as he seemingly stepped away from social media for good soon after he shared a brand new snippet of a new single on his official Instagram account on Saturday, February 5. ‘The Box’ hitmaker’s social media accounts were seen deactivated as hashtags like ‘#RoddyRicchfelloff’ and ‘#RoddyRicchsnippet’ secured one of the top spots on the trending list.
 
The 23-year-old rapper was brutally trolled for the new snippet as many claimed that the beat was trash and Roddy was using the same flow just like in his previous songs. However, his loyal fans soon came to the rescue defending the rapper by reminding his achievements to the haters. The multi-platinum hip-hop artist had dropped his second album called ‘Live Life Fast’ in December 2021 but it failed to repeat the success of his debut studio effort ‘Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial’ released in 2019.

Why did Roddy Ricch quit social media?

Roddy Ricch did not share the reason before deactivating his socials but dropped a hint on his Instagram stories by sharing an emoticon of a peace sign. In the new snippet of the song ‘Out My Mind’ that went viral for all the wrong reasons, he raps, “I been low, I been high/I been out my body, out my mind/When you take my soul, take yo' time.” He further spits, “How many times did I lose in in heavy/Wet the whole block they flop, they throwin' tantrum/ How many times did I blow a bag on dancers?/Don't panic 'cause I'm havin' these racks and rocks/Meet me at the mountain top/He gon' come 'round the bend with a mop.” As mentioned earlier, Roddy Ricch might have been affected by the brutality of the trolls that led to him quitting social media.

Akademiks first appeared shocked as he tweeted, “Man what yall do to Roddy Ricch??” He then shared, “Yall aint gonna do my boy Roddy Ricch like yall did Chance the Rapper.. yall know he aint mid.. he just took too long to drop... if he dropped more frequently the good shit would rise to the top.. but anticipation followed by a 'cool' effort made us feel like WTF did we wait 4.”
 
Akademiks again tweeted, “Roddy Ricch just need to get back on grind mode.. and its hard for artists to do after they've had hella success... Nobody loves you that much to wait 3 years for project. Feed the skreets.. OFTEN..or watch them turn on u word to NBA YOUNGBOY. unless u kendrick, frank ocean, etc.” He concluded, “Roddy's reaction to his sales and everything since make it seems like he triggered.. I highly doubt that. But deleting ya twitter etc.. lol.. fans and trolls look at that as 'we won..' I hope Roddy don't get in the way of his own success... Drop music and be consistent.”
