WHY WE LOVE RODDY RICCH
He is a funny guy
Ricch’s song ‘The Box’ had been beating ‘Yummy’ by Justin Bieber at the number one spot, so Bieber asked international fans to download a V.P.N., set their location to the U.S., and stream ‘Yummy’ while sleeping to boost it to the top. In response, Roddy Ricch just tweeted for people to stream Bieber’s music.
