US rapper also working with Calvin Harris, Diplo and Blink-182's Travis Barker
Riff Raff has released new song ‘Back From The Dead’, a collaboration with grime MC Skepta.
Riff Raff, who rose to fame on MTV reality show From G’s to Gents and was later cited as an influence on James Franco’s Spring Breakers character, will release new album ‘Balloween’ on October 25. It will feature guests spots from Calvin Harris, Diplo, Blink-182‘s Travis Barker, Lil B and Yung Lean.
Speaking to The Fader, Riff Raff said of the Skepta track: “When we decided to make the best Halloween album ever we had to get the #1 ranked U.K. artist on this song. Skepta 100%.”
Mercury Prize winner Skepta’s album ‘Konnichiwa’, which was released back in May, beat David Bowie and Radiohead to win the Mercury Prize last month. He became the second grime artist to win the Mercury Prize after Dizzee Rascal won with his debut ‘Boy In Da Corner’ in 2003.
