When I first saw Riff Raff on MTV’s “From G’s To Gents” reality TV show I really didn’t know what to think. Like many I didn’t take him as a serious musician or at the very least a commendable rap artist.
Fast forward three years and I get a chance to meet Riff Raff at SXSW 2012 in Austin, Texas and the NMM team interviews Riff Raff:
Okay, so that interview didn’t change my perception of Riff Raff what-so-ever.
A few weeks pass and I happen to catch Riff Raff on track with Action Bronson. Okay, respect, that joint is dope, but honestly that wasn’t enough to change my perception of Riff Raff.
April 11th 2012, the TiME music video drops and I’m taken aback. After several views, I have to admit that I love the video and song. It’s super genuine and real.
Now, I don’t know if I would call myself a Riff Raff fan but next time I see an email come up with RIFF RAFF in the subject line I know I won’t be nearly skeptical. Enjoy:
