It's been a minute since RiFF RAFF dropped his debut album, NEON iCON, but he's been hyping his next release ever since he dropped it. After much delay, it seems that PEACH PANTHER might finally be on the way, as the first single, "Carlos Slim" has arrived. RiFF has decided to recruit Atlanta's hottest production team, 808 Mafia, to soundtrack the new record, which gives his rhymes a more ominous tone than his usually colorful production.
Gucci Mane Feat. Post Malone, Riff Raff & Lil B
Well, Gucci Mane may have slid in to give us the most insane collaboration of the year with only a week to go in 2015. With the arrival of Guwop's jam-packed East Atlanta Santa 2 mixtape earlier today, one crew track stood out in particular, if only for the confusion it inspired. "Embarrassed" features guest appearances from an eclectic crew of collaborators made up of Lil B, RiFF RAFF, and Post Malone -- the last of which blew up long after Gucci went away.
Real Niggaz Only
J Stalin Feat. Iamsu! & Riff Raff
Oakland's J. Stalin just released a new album, Tears of Joy, that features Bay Area OGs such as Mistah F.A.B. and the late, great The Jacka. It also contains a booming collab with Riff Raff and Iamsu!: "Real Niggaz Only." The track is a thizzed-out, adrenaline-pumping banger offering a little bit of everything: infectious party raps from Iamsu!, gangsta bars from Stalin, and pure silliness from Riff Raff. Stalin has been a staple in The Bay for years, and "Real Niggaz Only" shows he isn't slowing down anytime soon.
1st Feat. Rich The Kid & Riff Raff
The duo known as FKi has had some huge production credits recently, such as 2 Chainz' "Watch Out," but each 1st and SauceLordRich have begun working on their own projects, and so far so good. In August, SauceLord came out with "G.U.N.S.," which featured Iggy Azalea. Now it's 1st's turn, and he's brought along Rich the Kid and Riff Raff for "Hurtin."
Riff Raff may have just guested on three of "Trap God" Gucci Mane's new tracks, but his aspirations go far beyond trap music. As he showed on NEON iCON tracks "Introducing The Icon" and "Kokayne," he's more than capable of spitting atop a rock-influenced beat, and so it comes as little surprise that he's linked up with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker for a new track called "Spazz Out."
Diplo Feat. CL, Riff Raff & OG Maco
Over the course of his career, Diplo's worked with everyone from M.I.A. to Pusha T, but even for him, this new track is eclectic. "Dr. Pepper" is helmed by K-Pop star CL, and features verses from RiFF RAFF and OG Maco.
Dorrough Music Feat. Riff Raff
Its been a minute since we last heard from Dorrough Music, but on Wednesday night the Dallas native dropped off his new mixtape called Shut The City Down 2. Laced with 14 tracks, the project features guest appearances from Cash Out, Peewee Longway, Young Dolph, and many more. Highlighting the project, here goes one of the standout cuts called “Drive Reckless” featuring Riff Raff. Produced by Cardo and Johnny Juliano, the track is boisterous street cut that finds the two rappers paying homage to their homestate of Texas.
Judo Chop (Freestyle)
After years of floating around the rap internet, distributing his music primarily through YouTube, RiFF RAFF dropped his proper debut album, NEON iCON, through Mad Decent last year. Since making his career in music official, JODY HiGHROLLER only upped his extracurricular activities, announcing recently that he would join legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan as his new tag team partner in WWE.
Wish That I Was Playin
YOWDA Feat. Riff Raff
After premiering a visual for Yowda back in November with Tracy T "Forget That", the rapper fell back a bit. The rapper inked a deal with MMG towards the end of 2014, but he has yet to release a full project since signing.
Tha Joker Feat. K Camp, Riff Raff & Raven Felix
A few weeks ago, Tha Joker shared a track entitled "FHITO" that featured K Camp and RiFF RAFF, and now he's added Raven Felix to the party on a new remix. With the artwork fittingly adorned with red Solo cups, the song (whose title stands for Fuck How It Turn Out) is full of debauchery and nihilism.
Rich N Famous
BeatKing Feat. Riff Raff & Paul Wall
The last time that Houston natives BeatKing and Riff Raff linked up, we got a bombastic, EDM-tinged banger aptly titled "Rambunctious," with Danny Brown tagging along for the ride. Today, those two bring hometown legend Paul Wall into the mix for "Rich N Famous," another electronically enthralling banger. Over a cacophonous instrumental, the power trio get wavy, rapping about the spoils of their lavish lifestyles.
Tha Joker Feat. Riff Raff & K Camp
Strangely, Tha Joker has decided to go back to his 2012 track, "F.H.I.T.O." (which stands for Fuck How It Turn Out), giving it a does of 2015 energy with some additional features. On board are two rappers that just came off of big years -- RiFF RAFF, who recently released his debut album NEON iCON, and K Camp, who was involved with three of the biggest rap radio records of the year, being "Made Me", Money Baby", and "Cut Her Off".
Peter Jackson Feat. Riff Raff
Rising Toronto rapper Peter Jackson has connected with a lot of rappers, so he's got a strong connect somewhere.
I Then Came Dine
Kirko Bangz Feat. Riff Raff
Kirko Bangz has always repped his hometown of Houston, Texas pretty hard, but his new tape, Progression V celebrates the rich rap history of the region on another level. The project's cover pays tribute to Houston legends like Big Moe, DJ Screw, and Pimp C, and Kirko makes sure to big up his heroes on record as well.
Mike Will Made It Feat. Riff Raff & Jxmmi of Rae Sremmurd
As if new tracks featuring 2Chainz and ILoveMakonnen weren't enough to get the people excited for tomorrow's Ransom tape, Mike Will continues to leak new music from the project. On "Choppin' Blades," Riff Raff is joined by one-half of Rae Sremmurd for a synth-driven ode to oversized rims. Play this one in the whip for the producer's intended experience.
Riff Raff Feat. Rae Sremmurd
Some of hip-hop's self-appointed weird rappers, Riff Raff and young duo Rae Sremmurd come together today for "Choppin." It's unexpected, but at the same time, not at all. Mike WiLL Made It on the boards of course, the producer was on Sway In The Morning earlier today where he debuted this record. It's a hard beat from Mike WiLL, and will likely appear on the Atlanta native's upcoming mixtape Ransom.
Riff Raff Feat. Snoop Dogg & Collie Buddz
A lot of points are inevitably raised when RiFF RAFF's name comes up, from his "Is he for real?" demeanor, to his absurd imagery, but seldom is JODY HiGHROLLER's singing voice the topic of conversation, which is strange since he uses a lot. We've heard his borderline angelic crooning on career highlights like "Mama I'm Sorry" and "Versace Python", and his new record continues in that tradition. Joining Snoop Dogg and Collie Budz, RiFF has contributed a breathy hook, which compliments the reggae-tinged record perfectly without going overboard on fake patois.
O.T. Genasis, previously a virtually-unknown New York rapper, has a hit on his hands. With almost no street-level, grass roots-type movement behind "CoCo," the song that's taking off, Genasis' success is mostly due to a strong marketing push and the support of Busta Rhymes (who recently showed up to a CMJ show to run through the track four straight times).
Take You There (Remix)
Riff Raff Feat. Kiesza
As a signee of Diplo's Mad Decent record label, RiFF RAFF has been known to hop on an EDM track or two, imbuing the already bright hues of turn up tracks with doses of his colorful, cartoonish persona. Today, he's done it again, offering up a remix of Jack Ü (Diplo and Skrillex's duo) and Kiesza's "Take Ü There."
Syrup In My Soda
Mike Will Made It Feat. Riff Raff & iLoveMakonnen
Following the release of his Wiz Khalifa & Future-assisted track “Pussy Overrated”, hit-producer Mike Will Made-It decides to liberate another new track for the masses tonight titled “Syrup In My Soda”, featuring Riff Raff & fellow ATLien ILoveMakonnen.
