Houston, Texas rapper RiFF RaFF is one of the growing Hip Hop stars of the last two years. The onetime Soulja Boy protege and MTV reality television star was arrested Sunday morning (August 11) outside of Greensboro, North Carolina. The rapper’s Chevrolet SUV was stopped around 2:30 am, when the Mad Decent Records artist was talking to pedestrians from his vehicle while in traffic.

According to TMZ.com, upon approaching the SUV, police discovered an open container of alcohol. Prompting a vehicle search, police discovered marijuana and other narcotics and paraphernalia.

Currently, RiFF RaFF is said to be working on his studio debut, Neon Icon. He has another album, Jody Highroller, with Diplo, in the works. Last year, Diplo released Three Loco with two other MTV stars, Dirt Nasty (f/k/a Simon Rex) and Andy Milonakis.
