“Don’t I” by Roddy Ricch (ft. Gunna)

This song’s title (“Don’t I”) is in question form. And the way Roddy Ricch uses it in the chorus is to reaffirm his status as the man, particularly in a romantic context, i.e. his ability to “lock” a woman down via his sexual prowess.

But the verses themselves aren’t really centered on a romantic/sexual motif. Instead on Roddy’s end, what is actually most unique about this track is that he uses it to namedrop a few major celebrities, i.e. Kanye West, Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey and even the late Kobe Bryant (who played for Ricch’s hometown team, the Los Angeles Lakers). 

And Gunna does a sound job of touching upon a multitude of topics, and they all point to him being, like Roddy, rich and on top of his game.

So in the case of “Live Life Fast”, Roddy did not feature Lil Baby and Gunna, who themselves have a solid collaboration history, on the same track. Instead “Moved to Miami” has Lil Baby, and the song that comes after it, “Don’t I”, features Gunna. So fans of the ATL duo will still get their proper dosage of Southeastern rap, and Gunna does represent himself quite well lyrically on this piece.
