The immense amount of preparation from Roach for the mixtape (he put out four videos from RBIII before it's release) built up a huge anticipation for it throughout the hip-hop community.

The long list of guest features doesn't hurt, either.  "I just kept it to people I actually fuck with personally, like I usually do" Roach says of the guests on Roachy Balboa III, including "of course the Goomba Gang, my bro Iamsu!, Clyde Carson, Kool John, my friend Kreayshawn, and my singing bro 1.O.A.K."  Remedy, Pac B, and Marlow also make appearances on the tape.

Out of the mixtape's seventeen songs, Roach lists some standout tracks being "Don't Forget The Gigz", "How I Feel", and the single "It's Lit" featuring Iamsu!, but insists that he cannot pick a favorite.  Roach believes that he's grown since his last release of the Roachy Balboa series, and promises that on his new mixtape he doesn't worry himself with making sure to touch on every subject, but just rapping about what comes naturally.  The variety of different producers that assist on the mixtape, including Nima Fadavi, DJ Two Stacks, Nick Catchdubs, P-Lo, C-Loz, and Trev Case make each track on the release more diverse than his previous two Roachy Balboas.  "I think musically, this is one of my best releases" Roach says of the new tape.  "I think the whole project separates me from the pack, honestly.  I might rap about some of the same shit everybody enjoys...I just do it cooler."

I have to be honest and a lil bias, I've said it before and I'll say it again "Roach Gigz" is MY FAVORITE RAPPER IN & OUT "THE BAY", right now. I've been stuck on stupid on him since the first video I seen which was "Goomba Pimpin/Kirplunk". I was captivated by the creativity in his flow. "Roach Gigz" will definitely entertain you, make you dance but at the same time you can't help but to respect his lyrical flows as it goes. A lot of people rap, some rap better than others but after a while the topics and flows all begin to sound the same and that's why I'm glad "Roach Gigz" has entered the game. "Roach Gigz" comes with a unique sound that you can't say is "Bay" but he definitely reps "The Yay" as you can see from his videos like "Can I Rap" & "Aye Boi Boi", "Orange & Black", "Magic Gas" and damn near every video he's made is shot in "The Bay". The "San Francisco" native"Roach Gigz", who got his name from a character in the the movie "Next Friday" and his dance gigz in high school, was voted on "106 KMEL's" as one of the "Top 10 Freshman Rappers of the Bay Area" and in 4 short years has become one of the hottest rappers in the "West Coast".

"Roach Balboa 2" is the follow up to "Roach's" highly acclaimed "Raochy Balboa" mixtape that dropped earlier this year. Now, with two successful mixtapes under his belt "Roach" is currently preparing his debut album, tentatively titled "Therapy Sessions", which is scheduled to be released this fall.

What I like about "Roach Gigz" is he puts his own spin on how he gets it in. He's not trying to rap like or sound like no one else in or out 

"The Bay", he's doing it his way. Metaphorically and lyrically he's better than most, "Roach Gigz" butters my toast. With beats that slaps naps and blows caps back, the answer to his question is yes: "Can I Rap".
