Anonymous said: is riff raff really in sodmg? i dont really hear any promotion or collabs from anyone else in sod. so i wasnt sure if it was some crazy rumor he started himself just to cause controversy.
I’ve thought about this before. Soulja Boy has tweeted that Riff Raff is in SODMG many times before, but it’s pretty obvious that Riff Raff is only on the label, not a part of the clique itself. Riff Raff is doing his own thing, which is good and bad depending on how you look at it. Good, because he can keep doing songs with TKO Capone and avoid doing songs with Soulja Boy’s back-up dancers. Bad, because Riff Raff still needs guidance and more restraint.
Elaborating on that, as much as I love Riff Raff’s music and see the potential for him to at least garner some acclaim outside of his current fanbase, he totally needs someone to mold his career and handle his business affairs, especially when it comes to the quality and distribution of his mixtapes. The fact that he is a hardly-known artist releasing un-mastered projects with instrumentals running two minutes past the songs’ end for TEN DOLLARS is ridiculous. Even if he was giving away his music on Datpiff, it’d still be frustrating, but we pay (or some of us did) hard-earned money for something that Riff Raff just barely throws together. Let’s keep in mind here that Sour & Gunpowdered was delayed for four months only to be released unfinished. That is unfathomable.
I really wish he’d use his SODMG connections to really help define his career, but aside from a chain and a name change his SODMG contract hasn’t amounted to anything. The fact that we have to wait until next Spring to even get another solo project from Riff Raff is just crazy after the debauchery that is Sour & Gunpowder (though, again, it’s good and had the potential to be great if it was finished. FINISHED. FINISHED GODDAMNIT. FINISH IT)
