Neon New Year Featuring Riff Raff

[NEON HIP-HOP] “Our reality has become experimental. Without destiny, modern man is left with an endless experimentation of himself.” While they’re the words of another transgressive theorist, Mr. Jean Baudrillard, hip-hop’s “neon icon” Riff Raff would agree. The Houston party rapper is such a shamelessly weird self-promoter that any criticism of his music is almost moot. Via an intermittently accented social media alter ego named Jody Highroller, Riff effortlessly makes his life into such a meme that his music—which is very hit or miss and experimental, in a sense—is supplemental. Case in point: Riff has released 18 official music videos so far in 2013, all strange, many bad. In the rap game, if at first you succeed, try, try and try again.
