If you haven’t noticed, there is a new breed of rappers infiltrating the LA independent hip hop scene. They might appear to be cast from the cartoons of a breakfast cereal boxes, but these honey smacks have big intentions, most notably Riff Raff aka Jody Highroller, who is winning hearts with his off beat cartoonish ways. Signed to Mad Decent earlier this year by Diplo, Riff Raff has been tearing up the indie scene and will be releasing a new song & video every week until 2013.
For his latest underground cut, he teamed up with his newest protege, Lil Debbie, an LA pixie who is basically a Kreayshawn doppelgänger with a sweeter flow.
“Michelle Obama is all about presidential status” said Riff Raff. “The presidential motorcade windows are tinted at 5%.” You cannot floss harder than that.
They dropped this song on the night of the election to “give Obama that little extra push” Riff Raff shared. “Next thing you know, Obama won!’ While he stopped short of taking credit for the entire win, he did congratulate Mr. Obama and said “Your Welcome”.
