Riff Raff FTW: His Best Tweets From a Turbulent Time
Riff Riff, the L.A.-and-outerspace-based rapper and avid BET, MTV, NBA and World Star Hip Hop enthusiast (he's tattooed each brand's logo on his body in a dogged pursuit to become the World's First Living NASCAR Racing Suit) signed to Diplo's Mad Decent label recently. The official signing party was earlier this week in Hollywood, but it's not all peaches and c.r.e.a.m. In the days leading up to it, Riff Raff had a very public falling out with the head honcho of his former label SODMG, Soulja Boy. Thangs got heated; Soulja Boy asserted Riff Raff was never on the label in the first place.
All in all, a busy few weeks for Riff Raff: New boss, new enemy, tons of new videos, new name (he's going by Jody Highroller now), new accent (Jody Highroller is English), new Versace Python. How's he handling it all? Well, the man is practically inscrutable in interview, but here are 15 tweets that we believe speak to his current mind state. Don't worry. He seems fine. Or does he?
