Record Review: Riff Raff — Neon Icon

Just go away, and take your braids with you



Riff Raff
Neon Icon
Mad Decent 

Oh, this is insufferable. And yet, to do this review objectively, suffer it we must. At this point, it doesn’t matter if reality-rap-bro Riff Raff is in on the joke or not — it’s a shitty joke. His voice sounds like somebody is scratching your eardrums with a wire hanger before squirting lemon juice up on in there. His lyrics are so dumb, they make the Insane Clown Posse’s tunes sound like the musings of Socrates. Kid Rock shakes his head at this man-child. Don’t get us started on that vile album art. Just go away, and take your braids with you.
