Have you ever been to a concert and left with a free Spring Break vacation? Riff Raff will headline the inaugural Road To Spring Break Tour, hitting 11 college markets throughout the Midwest and on each stop he will pick at least one lucky person from the audience to win a free Spring Break Vacation Voucher courtesy of Student City.
As the unofficial inspiration for the movie Spring Breakers, Riff Raff and his fans emulate Spring Break culture to the greatest degree, making him the fitting artist to kick off the inaugural Road To Spring Break Tour. He will bring his neon icon persona to each college market and electrify the house with a fun filled show - motivating all the students in the market to get ready for and join him on Spring Break at his special surprise performances.
Weird and wild enough to be associated with Soulja Boy, Andy Milonakis, O.G. Ron C., and Diplo's Mad Decent crew, Houston rapper Riff Raff first came on the scene in 2009 as a contestant on MTV's From G's to Gents, a competitive reality series where hardcore ballers tried to become sophisticates. According to OutKast associate and the show's host Fonzworth Bentley, Riff Raff was "beyond" his help, but "crazy like a fox" was another way to think of it as the rapper had the MTV logo tattooed on his neck, thus allowing him to use the network's name legally on his MTV Riff Raff mixtapes, his posts to video-sharing sites, and all his free tracks uploaded to social media. Thanks to Riff Raff mentioning his phone number in his songs, he was contacted by like-minded rapper Dirt Nasty, along with Andy Milonakis, for some collaborative tracks that landed beginning in 2010, and by 2011 he was signed to Soulja Boy's label and production house, S.O.D. Money Gang Inc. The relationship didn't last long, as Riff Raff signed with Diplo's Mad Decent label in 2012 and issued his mixtape Birth of an Icon. The tape featured early hits like "Jose Canseco" and "Jody Highroller," along with the Action Bronson team-up "Bird on a Wire." He also teamed up with Milonakis and Nasty in 2012 for the project and album Three Loco, while 2013 saw him partner with DollaBillGates for the album Jumpin Out the Gym. In 2014 he went back to his solo career with the Mad Decent release Neon Icon. The album featured the singles "How to Be the Man" and "Tip Toe Wing in My Jawwdinz," and in 2015, it was remixed by DJ O.G. Ron C. for the release Purple Icon: Chopped Not Slopped.
