With the release of countless music videos and mixtape records last year, Houston rapper RiFF RaFF is now shifting his attention to the release of a studio album. Both RiFF RaFF and Diplo recently chopped it up with Vlad TV about the upcoming project and according to Diplo, the album could be the “future of music.”
The producer and Mad Decent creator praised the project as he addressed the list of featured artists that will likely be included on RiFF RaFF’s studio album.
“We got some features on this album, but we’re not trying to sell the album like it’s a bunch of rappers you [already] know about,” said Diplo. “RiFF RaFF’s already put out so many mixtapes, so many videos, this album’s kinda like a collection of like ‘Yo, this is the mothafuckin future of music.’ So, that’s what it’s about it. And it’s about him, 100 percent.”
Among the artists both Diplo and RiFF RaFF revealed would be on the album are Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, Mike Posner, and possibly Drake. Although the album cut which will feature Drake has yet to be decided, RiFF RaFF did assure fans that a collaborative record with the Canadian artist as well as a “Started From The Bottom (Remix)” is coming.
“Me and Drake we got shit coming. For the album I’m trying to decide which one and also with the 'Started From The Bottom (Remix)' like 40 has to mix that one down still…I know that when we shoot the video we’ll probably be at Drake’s house like cooking crab legs or something,” the “Mr. Popular” rapper explained. “I don’t know who else is on it. I’m actually not sure and actually it almost doesn’t even matter cause I crashed it so hard.”
