Riff Raff is playing in Melbourne next month


Rapper and human embodiment of a meme, Riff Raff, has locked in a Melbourne show — going down next month at the Corner Hotel. 

Whatever your thoughts on Riff Raff, you’ve got to agree that the man is industrious. His lifetime of hustle has seen him tattoo MTV’s logo on his neck so he can use the network’s name legally on his mixtapes, as well as mentioning his actual phone number in songs so that artists could hit him up to collaborate. 

He also acted as James Franco’s unofficial inspiration for the film Spring Breakers

It all culminated with Riff Raff signing with Diplo’s Mad Decent label in 2012 and teaming up with Action Bronson for ‘Bird on a Wire’, going on to have a surprisingly prosperous career. 

In any case, Riff Raff is an inspiration to us all. If he can make it, anyone can.
