This is the most excited I’ve ever been for a Riff Raff song. Actually, let me rephrase that, this is the first time I’ve ever been excited for a Riff Raff song.
Back around Memorial Day weekend, I caught Jody Highroller’s set during Detroit’s renown, EDM-centric Movement festival. Among all the songs amidst his comical set, there was one with Action Bronson I’d never heard and actually sounded super legit, based on the hook and beat. Yet, after numerous attempts to find said track on Google and even asking the man himself in a random Gawker Q&A – I struck out numerous times and could not find the song. Until yesterday.
The apple of my ear actually happens to be “Rookies Of The Future,” a new slow-burner from Alchemist that allows the character personalities of both Bronsolino and Ken Riffy Jr. to shine bright as the sun, five feet from your face. Their lyrics are equally vivid and outlandish, per usual, offering a heightened sense of style to the super-smooth, guitar-based beat.
Considering I only heard the song once, and live for that matter, I’m happy to say this is as quality as anticipated. Who else is copping on iTunes?
