Riff Raff Returns To Cable TV As An Artist, Talks Drake & Neon Icon + More on SKEE Live


Controversial and oddball rapper Riff Raff made his debut on television as an artist in episode five of AXS TV and DJ Skee’s new show SKEE Live.  Known for his eccentric behavior, the Houston, Texas artist unapologetically made himself comfortable as he laid out across DJ Skee’s cocaine white colored couch, propped his elbows up and opened himself up to a series of questions.

 Never one to disappoint, Riff’s over-the-top personality, down South accent and vibrant attire helped the rapper shine for the cameras when it was time to go live.  The special appearance also served as the rapper’s first time performing on the small-screen.  Decked out in a signature style cut off T-shirt, Tom Ford sunglasses, a chinchilla scarf, Jordan sneakers, board shorts and plenty of gaudy jewelry, Riff Raff stayed true to himself and never attempted to turn down his familiar theatrics in front of a television audience.

At one point in the interview, Riff decided to boast about his Versace inspired hair braids and decided to pass DJ Skee his fluffy chinchilla scarf to wear during live taping.  Always a good sport, the host also found himself eventually rocking Riff’s limited edition sunglasses while the rapper enthusiastically bragged about the missing tint on the bottom half of the lenses.  It was obvious Riff Raff was in a good mood and having fun as his attention at times drifted away from the topic at hand and his sidebar commentary occasionally detoured the conversation.

The rapper’s quirky yet charismatic manners continued as he admitted to having expensive spending habits and shared with audiences that he doesn’t believe in saving money.  In fact, Riff openly expressed his need for convenience and solitude after he joked about buying a private plane and a planet of his own if he could.  Interestingly enough, the former reality TV star also revealed that fans could potentially see his music crossover to an alternative genre in the future, as he continues to branch out and work with different artists.  Riff Raff also reassured viewers at home that he indeed has music he’s recorded with Drake but was vague on when any of it would actually surface.

After walking off set a bit prematurely, Riff made his way to L.A. Live’s Conga Room to close out the show with a live performance of “Raiders vs. Hawks” and his new hit “How To Be The Man” which boasts production from DJ Mustard.  Equipped with back flipping hype man and a confident demeanor, the colorful rapper brought his energy to the stage, exchanged daps and pounds with DJ Skee and thanked the crowd as he faded to black after a short return to television.
