Roddy Ricch, the talented rapper, had been involved in making music for several years before he achieved widespread recognition. However, it was in January of a specific year (mention the year if known) that his career truly skyrocketed with the release of his hit track “The Box.” This rap song took the music industry by storm, dominating the coveted number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for an impressive 11 consecutive weeks.
Notably, “The Box” went on to become one of the most significant and celebrated hits of the year 2020 in the United States, solidifying Roddy Ricch’s status as a rising star in the rap genre. The overwhelming success of this song marked a pivotal moment in his career and further cemented his position as a prominent figure in the music industry.
The 23-year-old native of Compton has prudently re-invested a portion of his millions in real estate, spending $5.6 million on a notably secluded Los Angeles property. The nearly one-acre compound is hidden in the mountains above Beverly Hills and at the end of a long, gated driveway shared with three other estates. It features parking for up to 10 vehicles, a large swimming pool, and terraced gardens with a sports court and grassy lawns.
Best of all, there is a detached guesthouse that could be easily converted into a “gym… or music studio,” according to the property listing. The main residence was constructed around 1960, but it has been renovated and expanded in recent years. Today, the nearly 3,500-square-foot building has a modern appearance, with fashionable white and grey hues throughout. According to the listing, there are two master bedrooms in the home, one upstairs and one downstairs, both with spa-like bathrooms and custom closets.
Ideal for entertaining, nearly all of the home’s public spaces feature accordion-style glass doors that lead to the property’s expansive patios. In addition to a brand-new kitchen with stone countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless steel designer appliances, there is a media room with blackout shades and parquet floors throughout the entire building. The entire estate is surrounded by mature trees and tall hedges, and it borders the residence of the late Eddie Van Halen.
Ricch, born Rodrick Wayne Moore Jr., was mentored early in his career by the late Nipsey Hussle. The former gang member attributes his decision to invest in his birthplace to Hussle; he has already begun purchasing commercial real estate in Compton. His debut album, “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial,” topped the Billboard listings for four weeks.
