Now of course I know that here at Only The Beat we specialize in covering the hottest artists and tracks in electronic music, but that doesn't mean that we don't love some good hip hip every once in a while. Not only is RiFF RaFF
one of the most talked about hip hop artists in the game right now, but he's also signed to Mad Decent Records, run by the incredibly talented producer Wesley Pentz that we all know and love as Diplo
The Houston-born rapper and pop culture icon (also known as Jody Highroller) is known for his clever beats and more importantly, his stage presence. You'll find him on stage wearing awesome eccentric clothing (generally neon) and flashy jewelry like his ICEE soft drink chain
, keeping the crowd bouncing with the incredible energy that only a truly successful hip hop artist can bring.
If you haven't gotten to see RiFF RaFF live, I definitely recommend it. Comparing one of his shows to a big party is definitely an understatement. Lucky for you Seattleites (and some of you in other cities around the country), this beautiful blue-eyed rapper is heading to a venue near you. On Wednesday, May 14, RiFF RaFF will take the stage at Seattle's Showbox with fellow Mad Decent artist Grandtheft
, who's put out multiple EPs and made some of the most awesome trap and house remixes of artists like Madeon
, Sub Focus
, Calvin Harris
Don't have tickets yet? Lucky you.
We're giving a pair away to The Showbox show and you've got multiple chances to win! Like I said, this is one for the bucket list people, so get your finest neon threads out and come see RiFF RaFF show you why he's the hottest in the game.
