RiFF RaFF’s new album, NEON iCON, has yet to be released, but the Texas-based rapper says he has a collaborative album with Action Bronson to announce.
According to RiFF RaFF, the album by the duo is slated to be titled Galaxy Gladiators.
“Me and Action Bronson have a collaboration coming out called Galaxy Gladiators,” RiFF said in a recent interview with MTV. “Action Bronson is actually one of my best friends. Honestly, I feel he’s more accepted than me. I feel he’s on another level than me [in the] Hip Hop world. But, I’m in another level [in the] entertainment world, because I have shows coming out, movies coming out.
“But the way that he’s accepted and the way that he’s coming up is definitely a step above me on a whole ‘nother level,” RiFF added. “But we’re friends. I feel like it’s a whole new world. Every track that me and Action Bronson do is a hit song. So, I can’t argue with that.”
RiFF RaFF’s NEON iCON, to be released on Mad Decent in January 2014, as per MTV, is slated to include features from several rappers, including Drake, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky.
RiFF also spoke about his collaboration with Khalifa during his MTV interview.
“One of the tracks everybody likes is ‘Castle Around My Heart,'” RiFF said. “[Wiz Khalifa] was one of the first people to step out to me and was like, ‘I really want to get on that song.’…I wouldn’t want anybody else on that song.”
