Bad Rap Mondays – Riff Raff

Hailed by some as the messiah of rap, by others an oddity. Personally I just don’t get it. Some think it’s all an act – a genius acting like an idiot. I think that’s giving him far too much credit. Whilst he’s unpredictable and apparently ‘livening up the rap game’ his rhymes make no sense, his body looks like a billboard and need I mention the hair? Let’s take a look at the original Bad Rap Mondays poster boy, Riff Raff.

This guy clearly thinks he’s Bob Dylan with his forewarnings of losing it all. He then proceeds to ‘rap’ over the Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah” already you know this is gonna suck.

Although Raff’s hair sees many different stylings throughout this shitshow the Medusa-esque locks at the start are my favourite.

At first, the massaging hands look pretty soothing. Quickly replacing them for feet facials and a jenga-like pringle placement all over Raff’s body and things just get plain weird. In fact the whole melange stops being funny and just turns creepy. You then begin to question why you’re still watching the video, wondering what kind of medication he’s on and if he maybe, perhaps is the messiah of rap.

Is Riff Raff a misunderstood mastermind or just a bumbling idiot? Let us know in the comments section below.
