Waka Flocka Flame
Waka Flocka Flame
After five years in the rap game Waka Flocka Flame has learned a lot, he's matured musically and he's accomplished more than most people can fathom when they start their ascent to the top. His first mixtape, Salute Me or Shoot Me, Vol. 1 featured Waka Flocka's breakout hit "O Let's Do It" and since that single hit the No. 7 spot on the charts he hasn't looked back. Fast forward to 2013 and the man known as Waka Flocka Flame has gone through a rebirth of sorts and is continuing his journey with a new label (Atlantic Records) and a new management team (The Executive Club). When it comes to the reason why Waka has made this change in his career, the reasoning is simple—growth.

With a track record like Waka's it's clear that his future is bright and that it's starting right now. His new single "50K" featuring T.I. is taking it straight to the club; a reminder that he's the king of Southern party music. Outside of T.I., Waka has recently worked with Frenchie, Lil Wayne, Britney Spears and The Cataracts. This is all part of the master plan leading up to the release of his highly anticipated third album titled Flockaveli II. The upcoming EP will feature collaborations with Ne-Yo, French Montana, Chaz Gotti, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes, MGK, Jeezy and more of music's heavy hitters.

The man born Juaquin Malphurs in Jamaica, Queens and raised in Riverdale, GA is ready to show you exactly what evolution is all about. "I'm not bullsh*ttin' with this album. I'm going hard." Get ready for the second coming of Waka Flocka Flame because he's back, he isn't going anywhere and he's more ready than ever to show you how it's really done.
Riff Raff
Riff Raff
He has photo shoots with Terry Richardson. He is close friends with Justin Bieber (who gifted Riff with a chain) and Drake. SPIN magazine has labeled his debut album NEON iCON as the most anticipated album of the year.

RiFF RAFF shines bright, indeed.

His videos have garnered more than 50 million views on YouTube. He boasts more than 900,000 Twitter followers and tours the country without ever releasing a studio album. He has sold out shows from London to France, Finland & Germany all the way to the 4,000 person Sydney Opera House. His distinctive style and persona have even inspired a character in a blockbuster motion picture. There's only one man whose resume is so robust: RiFF RAFF.

The rapper's seemingly incessant musical and visual output and wild material have made him one of music's most in-demand collaborators. It has also landed him a recording contract with Diplo's Mad Decent label, which is slated to release RiFF RAFF's NEON iCON album.

The self-proclaimed white Eddie Murphy delivers the latest in his string of sonic gems with the DJ Mustard-produced NEON iCON hit "How To Be The Man." The rest of NEON iCON boasts equally magnificent material from"VERSACE Python" with Wiz Khalifa to "AQUABERRY Dolphin" featuring Mac Miller. Other premium guests on the album include Action Bronson, Childish Gambino, Diplo, Mike Posner, Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Alchemist & Harry Fraud.

RiFF RAFF combined his wide range of tastes and his expansive talents into what would become one of rap's most notable careers. He started rapping in the mid-2000s and, before many other artists of his generation, understood the significance and power of the internet. RiFF RAFF dropped dozens of viral videos and became an independent sensation thanks to eye-popping clips for "Jose Canseco" and "Marc Jacobs."

RiFF RAFF's videos, in particular, have helped build his brand, as he went on a creative tear and released 107 videos in a year and a half. One of those breakthrough videos was "Bird on a Wire," a collaboration with Action Bronson and producer Harry Fraud. The clip, which was released in 2012, has garnered more than 2.5 million views on YouTube. His "Larry Bird" video, a song and clip that highlights his otherworldly wordplay, his tattoos, his grill and his signature braids, has more than 1.7 million YouTube views.
