Who Is RiFF RaFF?

Taking Rap Seriously

"The thing I take seriously is my well-being and money and success. I take that seriously. Holding something like a pinnacle or something—this goes back to that territory type shit. ‘Oh, this is the rap game and you can’t do this and you can’t do this. Don’t step on these people’s toes and don’t do this.’ It’s just like saying, ‘Oh, I represent such and such and I do this.’ I don’t represent anybody and I don’t hold anything at such a high arc that I gotta manage by somebody’s rule. I don’t ever do good with rules.

 

I quit school. I don’t do good in following police guidelines or restrictions. For someone to put rules on a genre of music or put me in a category of rap, I can’t even see how you can do that.

 

I didn’t do good in school. I quit school. I don’t do good in following police guidelines or restrictions. For someone to put rules on a genre of music or put me in a category of rap, I can’t even see how you can do that. Just because I rhyme words together doesn’t mean I’m a rapper. People are going to say whatever they have to say and put you in whatever category possible. For me to even try and argue with that or tell somebody I am not a rapper or I am not this or I am not that or I take this seriously or I don’t take this seriously, it doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, they will have their own judgment and their own opinion."
