Picture Perfect with Retch

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

When it was time to choose someone to set off our new feature series Picture Perfect, where we get the stories behind our favorite artists’ Instagram flicks, it was a no-brainer to holler at Retch. Not only is Retch one of the dopest young rappers out right now (peep his latest project Polo Sporting Goods produced entirely by Thelonious Martin for proof), but his IG feed is off the chain. Whether he’s posting pics of him and his homies smoking excessive amounts of weed and/or hanging with the waviest of females, posing with your favorite hip-hop personalities (and the occasional movie star), or piecing together hilarious videos of nighttime moves through NYC, Retchy P’s been consistently killing it on the ‘Gram. So we connected with him earlier this week to get some insight into a dozen of his most compelling pics, and we also asked him to choose his favorite video clip from his recent IG footage. Here’s our first ever Picture Perfect with Retch, and yes, it’s lit!


1. ALL MY MONEY GO TO DOPE BITCH THATS EVERYDAY

Retch: “Before I jump into that one, I gotta say R.I.P. to my man Kidd. That was my nigga right there. He passed away, that shit was wack. That’s who ran that spot. After I had lived in Cali for a little while, I found this one little weed shop I used to fuck with every day, Kush Collective, over on Pico and La Brea. That was the spot right there. I’d wake up every morning and hit that shit. Me and this nigga [Heir] Dash would go there every day and just burn dope early in the morning.

“That was pretty much one of those mornings. I was in there, doing what I do regularly. Spending all my money on dope, back when I was smoking weed. I don’t even smoke weed no more. I’ve been off the dope for a little while now. Keeping my head clear. That shit ain’t going nowhere. We’re gonna die, and there’s gonna be little niggas smoking dope.”

2. NIGGAS JUS SPENT 200 ON CHICKEN DAWG POPEYES STUPID LIT FTW BOYZ PRO ERA KREAM KLICC

“That was actually the other night. We was at Statik Selektah’s crib, we had jumped out from over there to go grab some food. Some regular homie shit. We went to go get sandwiches originally, then we seen the Popeyes sign down the block glowing. So niggas start gravitating towards Popeyes. We was all in there mobbin’, and we got to the front and it was like, ‘We can all order, make several orders.’ Then it was like, ‘Fuck it nigga, let’s just buy all the chicken that these niggas got.’

“We monopolized the chicken game that night. Niggas was coming in Popeyes, they was sick. Niggas standing there with their arms crossed wanting chicken, but niggas ordered all the chicken. Niggas sitting there, greasy ass fingers, mad crumbs on their face, just grubbing. Shout to all my Pro Era niggas and shit. Shout to my nigga who said the grace over the chicken, the good heavenly Father prayer over the chicken. It was lit. It was a good time. Niggas really be friends outside of this [music] shit.”

3. JUS MET MY SON STIFLER LOL YO 2DAY TOO LIT I CANT EVEN TAKE IT

“That day was fucking awesome dog, I couldn’t even take it. I’m in SoHo, just running around doing regular shit. I was at Alife, I went to see my nigga Illario, shout to my Dominican barber on Rivington. I had just left the barber shop, and I’m standing outside my nigga’s office, and then my man pointed, like, ‘Yo, that’s Stifler.’ He was like halfway down the block. My man, he’s a laid-back cool nigga. Me, I’m a little more uppity with it. So I’m like, ‘Yo Stifler!!’ I just screamed it out. And the nigga turned around. I was like, ‘Oh shit! Yo, come back and take a pic with me my nigga.’ And he came back, he was cool as fuck. He was out there dolo, no security, no friends, just out in SoHo on his bullshit. So I took the pic with him, threw it on the ‘Gram. It was lit. Stifler, he’s a good dude. I def fucks with him.”

4. #LIT

“That was back when I was smoking mad dope and all that. I was over at my bitch crib, shout out Jordan. My mans had the camera out, we was just sitting in the living room, smoking wild dope. He sent me that shit, so I had to just throw it up on the ‘Gram. Clearly I was lit. It was lit. The whole situation was lit. So, you know, #LIT. Real simple shit. That was out in Cali.”

5. TRYNA ROLL MY BITCHES A BLEEZY LASTNIGHT 2 MANY DISTRACTIONS

“My homegirl Ju, she threw a little rooftop event. Shit was lit. We was all up there and shit. Mad bitches with fat asses. My nigga Ab-Soul was up there with his shorty. Dash, we all up there, coolin’, smoking dope, playing music, having a good time. Real friendly shit.

“My bitches is there, and they smoke weed, but they can’t roll. So I’m just doing a friendly service for the homegirls, just rolling up. But you obviously seen mad fat asses and all sorts of distractions around. Somebody ended up capturing that, and they sent it to me the next morning. So I threw it on the ‘Gram. It was lit.”

6. U EVER REALIZE UR MANS IS REALLY A LEGEND IN REAL LIFE, SHOUTS MY NIGGA AL THE CHEMIST, HANGIN OVER HERE REALLY INSPIRED A LOT OF PSG THANKS AL

“Shoutout to my nigga Alan the Chemist. That was pretty much just some regular shit. Niggas wasn’t over there recording. I went over there to check this nigga Action [Bronson], he was sick over at Alchemist’s crib in Santa Monica. That’s his new studio that he got built behind the crib that he already got two studios in. My nigga Al is just lit. I’m just sitting there, and he’s just burning some joints and shit, and I’m thinking about it like, ‘Yo, he made all that Mobb Deep shit and all that. This nigga right here is really a legend.’ But he’s just such a humble dude, and always relaxing and chilling, smoking a joint. He’s never too flashy, he’s on his quiet money shit. And I just realized, ‘Yo, this nigga actually is just the dude.’ So I just flicked it up for the moment.

“I spent a lot of time at Alchemist’s crib when I was writing Polo Sporting Goods. That’s why you kind of get that more hip-hoppy vibe than Delinquents & Degenerates and La Cienega. I was in that phase of life, hanging with the older homies, getting put on to life. Word is bond.”

7. SMH

“He got the fiend face on! That’s also at Alchemist’s crib. That was like the day before 4/20, which was last year Coachella. Shout out my nigga Action Bronson. He was lit. He just copped out on wild wax from the spot, and he was just doing what he do. But it was like a ‘shaking my head’ situation, like, ‘Look at your man! Look at his whole grill!’ [Laughs.] That’s just one of those, kicking it with the homies and shit.

“I met Action hanging out at Alchemist’s crib. He would be over there, and just being with motherfuckers in close quarters for so long, you can either learn to love ‘em or hate ‘em. And we just became friends from there. It’s all organic shit.”

8. JUS PERFORMED ON A BITCH LOL BACK BRIDGEPORT WAS LIT

“That shit is real simple. Shorty was in the front of the crowd rapping everything. She knew every word to every song. I was on my last joint, and I’m about to rap ‘Special Jim.’ So I just asked her, like, ‘Yo, let me sit on your shoulders for this one.’ And she turned around, and I just jumped on her shoulders and performed the whole song on her shoulders, ‘Special Jim’ start to finish, threw the mic on the stage, hopped off her back, and kept it movin’.

“One of my mans took that shit with his phone. One of my photographer friends took a more HD version which I got as my icon on Twitter right now. But I had to throw that one up right at the moment, It was so real. I had put ‘JUS PERFORMED ON A BITCH LOL BACK’ ‘cause it was so lit, I was rolling. It was so funny and spontaneous.”

9. Oh yeah?

“That was an ill ass day. Shoutout my nigga Dash and Shorty K, that’s my man out of Chicago. My nigga Mordecai had a shitload of shrooms one day, and he came out of his room and handed me this cup like, ‘Here.’ I was like, ‘Oh!’ Snapped a quick flick. I def had a crazy ass shroom trip that day, of which I got a bruise on my thigh still to remind me of. We was outside wildin’ that day. I found a dead squirrel, took a picture with it. Shit’s probably on my Instagram somewhere. It was a crazy day. I definitely was lit off the mushrooms. I can’t even fuck with that psychadelic shit no more. But at the time, I just moved to Cali, I was nineteen, having a good time.”

10. Tryna get this 3some poppin lol

“It’s funny, that’s from the same time, when I first moved to Cali. I was nineteen, getting my feet wet, running around. I had cracked one of the bitches asses and shit, she was one of the first shorties I scooped out there. I busted her ass in the pool, shit was crazy. And she brought her friend through, and it was kind of like one of those situations like, ‘Aiight, let’s see what we can pull off here.’ I’ma come clean, I ain’t even end up getting a threesome. Shorty ended up getting a wild phone call, and it pretty much just went downhill from there. But, whatever. If you follow my career, you know there’s been a couple of them since then.

“[I blanked their faces out] because I ain’t know if they wanted to be out here like that. That was at a time when I cared about things like that, about being discreet and what not. Now I’ve got to a point in life where ‘care’ is just a word.”

11. MY MAN @BIGBODYBESNYC FRESH HOME OUT HERE IN MIAMI LIT RN

“I had just done a show at Webster Hall the night before. And the night before, I was in a brawl in the hood, it was crazy. If you look at the Instagram, it goes in chronological order. I got off the plane, I was in the hood, went to go check one of my mans, and shit just got crazy in the spot. Then I went and did the Webster Hall show, it was lit. Brought out my nigga Ab-Soul, Addie, Joey Fatts, they did their thing and all that. It was a good time. Then in the morning, I was on the flight to Miami to go finish up the second leg of the Blue Chips 2 tour. We was all lit, I just met the nigga Thirstin Howl, he was a real good dude. Shout to Thirstin Howl and all the Lo Lifes. That was definitely a dude I looked up to. It’s always cool when you meet your heroes and they’re all actually cool as fuck. That was a good night in general. [Big Body] was back in the spot. It was like he never left.”

12. LOL FUNNY THING I GOT LOCKED UP RIGHT AFTER THIS AINT EVEN REMEMBER U TOOK IT TILL I SEEN IT @JESSIEROCKS HAHA #SXSW

“Shoutout to my girl Jessica, real awesome photographer. That shit was funny as hell. That was when niggas first got to South By. I had ran into a little situation, it was some whole other wild shit. I ain’t even gonna get into the details and what not. It was a little quick jam, in and outtie. You know, regular shit. But my homegirl who had took the picture, I don’t even remember taking that flick because it was such a hectic night. Then I had seen it after the whole South By shit was over, probably like two or three weeks after.”

*Retch’s Instagram Video Pick*

“My favorite video was from [the other] night. I was up in Harlem in the projects, and I just left [Crown Fried Chicken], and my niggas at Crowns had forgot my barbecue sauce. My mans came out the crib so on cue with the barbecue sauce, it was so perfect. That was a good one.

“I’m just documenting life, I’m not doing it for no specific reason. Once I stopped smoking weed, my ADHD came back full-fledged, and I was just outside lit with the shit. And I was like, ‘What the fuck do you do on Instagram now?’ So I started making Insta-videos, documenting what the fuck is going on every day. I’m glad motherfuckers appreciate it.”
