Discovery of the Day: Roach Gigz.

As I was reading over some tweets on my Tweetdeck search for "Rich Hil", I saw a tweet saying that Roach Gigz is the rapper Rich is biting off of. You know I had to investigate who Roach Gigz was! So I found his video for his song, My Girl Look Better. I could totally see why the person may have thought Rich was biting from him but at the same time I can't. There's like a  5% similarity in their flow and subject matter. And that's only for the song I just put. Other songs of his sound nothing like anything of Rich's. So that's about it. Oh, and they're both white. As if that even matters. Besides all that, I actually like this guy!

Roach Gigz is of the Bay area (CA) and is apparently really big on MySpace. The 21 year old emcee was a part of 106KMEL's Bay Area Freshmen 10. His latest mixtape is titled Roachy Balboa and yes, I will be checking it out. Def on the lookout for new music on this guy, he is indeed talented! Follow him on Twitter at @RoachGigz and check out his official site here.

Check out his video for his song, Respect It.




...I feel like Rich Hil and Roach Gigz are both talented and original artists-stop comparing one rapper to the next and let them all be them and GREAT!
