One look at RiFF RAFF and you’ll be expecting the punchline. If you put a team of comedy writers together in a room and told them to create an eccentric white Texas rapper, RiFF RAFF is what they’d come up with. A point re-inforced by Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers film which will feature James Franco in a role that appears to be inspired by RiFF RAFF.

RiFF RAFF wears gold grill teeth, rocks braided hair, those coloured contact lenses and has MTV, BET and NBA logos tattooed on his body. Like Nicki Minaj, he’s got a character called Jody Highroller with a terrible English accent. When he gives interviews, he’s lost in his own world, playing with ours. Rap game Lee Scratch Perry.
