Critical Praise for Roach Gigz:

“Here’s to the new age of rap. And Roach Gigz. Who is awesome. The FADER

Roachy Balboa is one of the most energetically fun rap records released this year. Pitchfork

Selected as a member of 106 KMEL’s (the biggest Bay Area hip-hop station) Freshmen Class of 2010.

The Song:

Roach Gigz released his new mixtape, Roachy Balboa 2, earlier this month and already the project, which serves as the follow up to Gigz’ first Roachy Balboa mixtape released last May, is being met with strong feedback and positive reviews. With a number of videos planned to drop over the coming months, including a forthcoming video for the previously released single “Syrup Thighs,” Roach continues to release new singles from the mixtape.

While previous singles from RB2 have shown off Roach’s ability to craft up-tempo anthems (“The Dopest 2“) and seamlessly collaborate with other artists (“Hold Up” featuring J Stalin), this new single finds the San Francisco-bred MC slowing down the pace and turning the mood a few notches darker as he puts his knack for story telling on display. Delving into a tale of shady show promoters, drugs, police stops, women, and bouts with financial trouble, Roach weaves a story of despair in his substance-induced drawl, rapping, “I long for liquor and pills to replace life’s ills.”

The Background:

Selected as one of 106 KMEL’s Top 10 Freshman Rappers of the Bay Area, 21-year-old San Francisco native Roach Gigz has gone from virtually unknown to one of the hottest artists on the West Coast in just four years. Born and raised in the Bay Area Roach was conceived in Nicaragua during the Contra and Sandinista war. His father was a supporter of the Sandinista Liberation Front and has never lived in the United States but Roach’s mom moved to California and raised him as a single mother. Needless to say his upbringing was very complex so being a white rapper in a predominantly Black and Latin dominated business is not an issue for Roach. “I’m just being myself and I think my fans see that. It ain’t about race; it’s about the music.”

Named after a combination of the character Roach from the movie Next Friday and his high school days dancing skills, Roach Gigz first gained local fame with close friend Lil 4Tay as one half of the group Bitch I Go (B.I.G.). Now, with two successful mixtapes under his belt Roach is currently preparing his debut album, tentatively titled Therapy Sessions, which is scheduled to be released this fall. The album is shaping up to be a very personal one. Roach says the music will touch on the ups and downs of his life from the struggles he’s been through growing up in the Bay to the birth of his newborn son.
