First of all, Riff Raff is a better artist than you think (peep his “Time” video for proof). Our theory is that he’s a method actor, a guy playing a role so ridiculous that he can’t break character. It’s hard to tell how serious anything he ever does is, but through it all you can always see a hint of awareness—he’s always breaking the 4th wall but never explicitly. We don’t love all his songs, but we do love all his interviews, catchphrases, Vines, emails, and text messages. Maybe he’s not a method actor, but his commitment to character just might make him the rap game Andy Kaufman.
