Roddy Ricch Buys Groceries for Shoppers in his Hometown
Roddy Ricch gave back to his city of Los Angeles this week by paying for some residents’ groceries.
It seems the LA rapper has taken the title of his ‘Feed Tha Streets,’ mixtape series quite literally by paying for customers’ shopping at a local supermarket in his hometown.
The Compton rapper got on the loudspeaker of a local grocery store and let customers by know he’d be paying for all of their shopping for the day.
Ricch has turned Good Samaritan as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches in the USA while inflation rises in the country.
The following no is what the rapper announced on the supermarket’s P.A system.
“It’s Roddy Ricch, if I got any shoppers in here we just came through to pay for anybody’s groceries for the next 30 minutes,” he told the shoppers.
“If you got your groceries and you want us to pay for them and help y’all out,” he announced on the sound system.
“We here for y’all, make your way to the register — we got y’all and we appreciate y’all. We love (Los Angeles), happy holidays,” he said.
The rapper’s generosity went on to help out many shoppers, who were left touched by his gesture.
“Thank you so much, I just wanna cry right now,” one female shopper said.
“This is a blessing today,” another said.

This incident comes after Roddy Ricch recently stopped off at a school in New York to share some of what he has learned with students there.
“We just wanted to come by and show y’all some love and be active in the community and just let y’all know that there’s somebody out there that care for y’all,” he told the children he spoke to at the school.
“Everything we do is for the kids. We here for y’all. I was once y’all,” he told the students assembled there.
Ricch released his newest project, ‘Feed Tha Streets 3,’ on Friday, 18th November.
The latest mixtape in his famed series features 15 tracks and has two other rappers assist; Lil Durk and Ty Dolla $ign.
