Earlier this year, Riff Raff signed to Diplo's Mad Decent label, and since then, he's been riding the momentum to a somewhat masterful degree. In 2012, Riff Raff toured, put out two albums, The Golden Alien and Birth Of An Icon, collaborated with Wiz Khalifa, Action Bronson, and Chief Keef, and undoubtedly made his mark, with everything from his popular "rap game" meme to his comedy-driven unorthodox rap style.

When it comes to Riff Raff, everything is unpredictable. We asked him for a list of his 25 favorite albums, and after pondering for a few days, he sent in his selections, with a message: “25 is too damn long, feels like homework or some shit.” Despite being shorter than expected, the list is entertaining enough to make up for it. From Madonna to Chamillionaire, here's a look at Riff Raff's taste in music.
