Roddy Ricch owes a lot to Nipsey Hussle. Early in the rising star's career, the Los Angeles rapper was the only person to throw him a co-sign, inviting him onto "Racks In The Middle" and contributing to the star's massive growth. Fast forward one year and Roddy Ricch is a Grammy winner and has the longest-running #1 single of the year with "The Box." 

Nipsey Hussle saw something in Roddy Ricch that nobody else did. He recognized his star potential and supported the Compton rapper until the very end. When he passed, Ricch got a face tattoo in his honor before being announced as a Grammy winner by his side. This week, he finally received his prize in the mail and it was a bittersweet moment for him.

"Thank u @nipseyhussle," wrote Roddy Ricch on social media, showing off his brand new Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance on "Racks In The Middle."

Everybody has been getting their awards in the mail this month, including Cardi B's prize for Invasion Of Privacy

Roddy Ricch is one of the few who took the opportunity to show off the hardware, proving that hard work pays off eventually. 

Congratulations to Roddy on his win. The Marathon Continues.
