-Oh. I was on a ATV. Oh. Motorized skateboard. -Yeah.
-Wow. Alright. You know what?
This is good that you’re here because I want to
talk about your thing, but the network has me
under a lot of pressure to actually ask about, like,
other things in your life, like music and whatever.
So I gotta get to that first. Okay. Okay. So you are a rapper. Yeah, that’s what they say. You were living with the Migos
when you first started? Yeah, I was living with them

in the trap house. [sighs] Trap houses
are never good. Why won’t trappers… Move out
the trap house? No, like, make
their trap houses look nice. Sometimes they ain’t got
the means to make it look nice. I mean,
you could go to IKEA and get a couple of
nice pieces of furniture and have your trap house– -IKEA?!
-Yeah. That’s where all the thotties
get they stuff. [laughs] So trappers
don’t go to IKEA? No, trappers
ain’t go to IKEA. How was, uh–

-Like, is there one– is one of them at least neat?
Like one of– like, is Quavo
always yelling? We all– ’cause we
all is not neat so… Nobody? It’s, like, bando style. [laughs] We didn’t want
to come to the crib. Nobody had OCD? None of us. No. You never had
this old cleaning lady that comes in the trap house? Cleaning lady? Yeah, a cleaning lady. Cleaning lady? Yeah, a cleaning lady. Like 1-800-CLEAN? Sure. Is that a real thing? Do you use that? No, not me. Should we start that? 1-800-CLEAN. -Yeah.
-Down. [blips] I clean the trap house fast. [laughs] Look out. It actually would
be a good business. With strippers though. Huh? What? No, I’m not
even bulls—-ing. This is a good idea. -Hold on. -Yeah. -We get strippers
-to clean …during the daytime,
to clean trap houses. Yes. We– yo, nobody steal that. Your trap house
will be cleaned. We starting our LLC. It’s gonna be
Rich the Ciph… And cleaning trap
houses near you. [blips] Oh, that’s a good idea. No doubt. Wait, hold on.
Are you making… Are you making this joke
because I’m Puerto Rican? -What?
-Okay. -What is, uh–
Who’s Ralphie? He’s Puerto Rican. Ralphie’s Puerto Rican?

You got somebody? No, I was just wondering
because we should do- we should do Rich Forever– -A comedy division.
-And I’d sign comedians. Yeah. I’ll be president though.
You’ll be CEO. [blips] Let me
think about that. What do you– why?
I don’t understand. You had no interest in
this two seconds ago. Now I’m already out? -Hold on.
-I’m out already? I’m making the trap clean.
Remember? Right. And now we’re gonna
do the comedian. I’m gonna be making you
too much money. [hip hop music] I– you know what
I don’t like about you? You keep saying “I” a lot while we keep
coming up with ideas and then he keeps going “I”. Oh, yeah.
Damn, my bad. So this Jay Critch kid,
you like him? He’s the hottest
in New York. Hottest. Fire. Who else is
the hottest New York? New York is not

wouldn’t tell you. It’s only hip hop artists? You ever talk
about signing, like, maybe like
a country artist or… -Country?

It’s cool. Yeah. Is there any way you connect your music
to your skateboarding? -To my skateboarding?
-Yeah. Is there any connection
where you feel like how you do in the studio
the same way– is there like a freedom? Maybe you’re on a skateboard
and you’re just cruising. [chuckles]
And I’m just… Yeah, you just, like, [surf rock] ♪♪ Just cruising
down the block. That’s not
how I skateboard, bro. No. It’s more aggressive. [blows]

I knew it. I knew it’d be similar. Flames like
[mouth noise] Oh, that’s
an expensive mic. [laughter] It’s okay.
I’ll buy another one. I don’t like
that you can just buy stuff. You can’t buy me.
You can’t just buy my show. -But I could buy the mic.
-I know, but I feel like you’re– I don’t like that
you’re richer than me. I could buy the mic though. We’re going to figure out how
to get the actual real things out of people
on the show eventually. I used to- I used to
love skateboarding a lot, but you know, it’s still
a passion for me though. Yeah. You don’t
do it much anymore? No. I do music
and business. Right, and you can’t skateboard
when you do. Here, you know what?

dry a skateboard? Yup. [crash] Oh… who is that?
Marshall? Marshall! Marshall,

Come get it for me, please. You use skateboards
to do tricks. Yeah. I use skateboards
to eat treats. But what I noticed is that some of the skateboard trick
and treat names are the same. I’ma tell you a trick,
you show me how to do it, and then I’ll tell you
how to do the treat version. -Okay.
-Alright. So the first one is, uh, you tell me
what a Ollie looks like. An Ollie.
That’s an Ollie? Yup. What is it?
How does it go? That’s it? -That’s simple.
-Very simple. Okay, my version
of a Ollie is what I call olives. Okay? So I like to
place the olives… What the hell you makin’,
a sandwich? No, I eat the olives
off the board. This is how
you serve ’em. [inhales] Aw, hell no! What are you, eating olives
off the skateboard, man? ‘Cause this– if you put them
on a plate, they roll off. Bro! You don’t have no bread,
no sandwich, no nothin’. I like to vaccuum my olives. [inhales] Man, Marshall,
get me out of here. No, no! Marshall. Alright, final one. I need you to
do a heel flip. You tell me
what a heelflip looks like. -Heelflip…

actually flip? -I’m about to show you.
-Oh, it flips that way. Yup. Oh. Ooh. I thought it was
when you hit the back– -when you hit the back like…

the treat version? Yeah. Wait, have you ever
heard of Flipz, the delicious
chocolate pretzels? -Oh, I f–k with that.
-Thank you. What, you trying to crush them?
Put them on the wrong side? You trying to flip them? Don’t- don’t question me. [laughter] I’m trying to
teach you something. I’m trying to

how to do the heelflip. Boom.
Toe, heel. [thud] [thud] You get- you get the gist. It looks like
you’re struggling over there. [mouth full]
What do you mean? I’m a little bit
out of practice, but don’t ever question
my snack-a-doo tactics. Look, look, look. Killin’ the cup. I’m about to Ollie
on top of the cup. Ooooohh. Do you want some of
my snack-a-doos? No, thank you.
[chuckles] No, thank-a-doo. [laughter] [laughs] Do the Damn Thing. Rich the Kid,
