In case you don't know, Riff Raff first got our attention in 2009 when he was a contestant on MTV's From G's To Gents. He even had the network's logo tattooed on his neck, which basically meant he could use "MTV" to promote his mixtapes, use it on video-sharing sites and upload his tracks for free to social media listeners.
Not to mention, Riff Raff even spit out his phone number in some of his songs. That got the attention of fellow rapper Dirt Nasty, as well as Andy Milonakis, to collaborate on some tracks. By 2011, Riff Raff was signed to Soulja Boy's label – S.O.D. Money Gang Inc.
Since then, he's signed with Diplo's Mad Decent label and released both mixtapes and albums. In 2016, Riff Raff even began his own label, Neon Nation Corporation. That same year, he collaborated with DJ Afterthough to release Balloween, which brings guests spots from Skepta, Quavo and DJ Paul to name a few.
