However, he wasn’t prepared for the wave of negative feedback. Social media was quick to criticize Roddy’s new music, according to Complex. Some fans expressed their disappointment, while others claimed the Grammy-winning MC was “falling off.”
“We don’t need this on God,” wrote one person, while another added, “It’s safe to say Roddy Ricch blew up before we could see his true potential.”
“We are witnessing the Chance The Rapper-ification of Roddy Ricch,” commented a third person.

The backlash wasn’t lost on Roddy, who acknowledged the criticism before deactivating his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“Guess I’m a flop now,” he wrote alongside the peace sign emoji. “Shit crazy.”

Roddy released his sophomore album, LIVE LIFE FAST, in December. He has been working on his new mixtape, Feed Tha Streets 3, which he said would drop sometime this year.
Earlier this month, Meek Mill revealed that he wanted to sign Roddy to his label, but Atlantic Records prevented him from doing so.
