Roddy Ricch Reveals How The Stunnaman Collaboration With Lil Wayne & Birdman Came About

Roddy Ricch recently chopped it up with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s “New Music Daily” series, which you can listen to in full below.

The Compton rapper revealed how his “Stunnaman” collaboration with Birdman and Lil Wayne came about, as well as how good it was to see Baby and Wayne together again.

“I was in Miami, I pulled up on Stunna, and I was just… upstairs. We just made it. I made it. He like: ‘little bruh, this is special. We’re going to have to do something with this.’ I’m like: ‘all right… cool. It ain’t nothing.’ So you feel me? He ends up making his call, doing what he had to do. Next thing I know, they tell me like: ‘man, Wayne.’ I’m like: ‘huh? Damn, Wayne and Birdman.’ I know a lot of people wonder why, but just growing up, you see them two together, that was just… it’s a no-brainer, to just be able to be in the room or even do music with them. So the fact that I could even be on a song with them, that was one of my little check offs.”

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Eminem explained his reasons why he doesn’t think there will ever be a best rapper of all time.

“I rap to be the best rapper, but I’m not the only rapper who raps to be the best rapper. [Lil] Wayne, [J.] Cole, Kendrick [Lamar], Joyner Lucas. They rap to be the best rapper, and I feel like when you push yourself like that, that’s what I feel like inspires greatness.”
