Roach Gigz portrayed himself as a carefree Oaktown player on his popular Roachy Balboa mixtapes, but he gets serious on B*tch, I'm A Player. "Wild Child," "Lost" and "Drugs" show his content runs deeper than macking, though he does plenty of that, too (check "Gina" for proof). Roach has a slangy flow typical of Bay Area rappers, and producer C-Loz adds bass drops and vocal edits (especially on "F A Chorus") that make Roach sound surreal. You get the sense that this is more than a game for him, although he admits on "Headache," "All I really need is some p*ssy and a fat plate."
