Critical Praise for Roach Gigz:
"Roach's new Bitch, I'm A Player EP is a lot of fun, a high-energy onslaught of sex-brags and self-deprecating jokes... It's a nice little portrait of a rapper dizzily in love with the art of rapping, and with the places that his gift can take him." - Pitchfork
"Here's to the new age of rap. And Roach Gigz. Who is awesome." - The FADER
Still riding high off the success of his recent, Bitch, I'm A Player, Roach Gigz is excited to release not only the latest video from the EP, for the song "Gina", but also announce a limited-edition 4-disc release for the EP. The package includes not only Bitch, I'm A Player but also Roach's fan-favorite Roachy Balboa: Round 1, Roachy Balboa: Round 2, and his debut solo mixtape Buckets & Booty Calls. Along with the limited edition package, Roach is also including a T-Shirt (both men's and women's sizes available), and Roach will be personally signing each CD for fans.
The limited edition items can be purchased directly from Roach's website, with a handful of bundles available to fans, depending on what they're looking for. For $25 fans can get the 4-disc set, personally signed by Roach. T-Shirts, by themselves, are available for $20 a piece, and for Roach's most loyal fans, there's an option to buy both the signed 4-disc set and a T-Shirt for $35. "I've always released my music free," says Roach, "so fans could hear my music without breaking their pockets. But I finally wanted to give fans the option to buy the CD; throw it in their car, hold the packaging in their hands. It's all about finding ways to make my music a more enjoyable experience for my fans - they're the ones that have helped me get here."
To celebrate the limited edition physical release, Roach Gigz is also releasing the video for "Gina," the latest single from Bitch, I'm A Player, and the latest in what expects to be a long line of visuals still to come from the Bay Area rapper's debut EP. While the Kreayshawn-directed clip for "F A Chorus" caught Roach live in action, rapping all over New York City's Times Square, the video for "Gina" follows the song's suggestively endearing plot line, as Roach weaves his salacious tales. "The lyrics to the song are really what inspired the video," explains Roach, who pulled in long time friend and collaborator Young Remedy to direct. "I wanted to bring the story to life and keep it creative."

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. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Roach was conceived in Nicaragua during the Contra and Sandinista war. 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, after two successful Roachy Balboa mixtapes, a mtvU Freshmen 5 victory and a MTV2 Sucker Free feature under his belt, Roach has just released his latest mixtape, Bitch, I'm A Player. The BIAP mixtape will be followed in August with a limited edition physical release that will also include his previous Roachy Balboa mixtapes, as well as his debut mixtape, Buckets & Booty Calls.
