Yeah but Ebro's agenda was to "expose" Riff Raff as being some fake image. Not one thing Riff said was going to make a difference to change that. I would love to see him do this to all rappers if he wants to take that torch and run with it. Grill Rick Ross on his background or Lil Wayne for his clothing and new skater image. Is that just a fad?

Better yet, being part of one of the most influential radio stations in the country, push music that makes you think or is positive. Push Talib or Dead Prez. Push positive rap. Push more socially conscious music. Instead you are hit with a rotation of coke, gang and strip club rap day in and day out, week after week claiming that's what the people want. That's your political machine starving our children of positivity giving you money to push their social agenda and keep the hood down while you throw your hand up feigning innocence.

I don't even like riff raff, but it seem like every interview I see Ebro in is always some controversial sh*t. Some of the sh*t is valid the first time I saw riff raff I questioned what he was about, but this conflict was no more realistic than reality tv. I think Ebro just likes to stir up sh*t.

That freestyle was nice.

Riff kept it real man. He's true to his character.

I kept waiting for Riff to tell him shut the fu*k up. I liked when he raised his voice to Ebro or whoever he is.

fu*k that fatty.

I woulda turned my chair to the other guy been like your turn

riff raff isnt a bad artist by any means. he can flow, and makes very good hooks. i dunno why he even receives hate. he is way better than lil b, soulja boy, paul wall, etc.

why doesn't ebro spend his time interviewing jay/kanye and other black rappers... "why you wear suits to formal occasions" why you trying to "act white" there's no difference, he just see riff raff as an easy target and got caught out. riff raff did his thing, honest dude.

Ebro is a douche, he's essentially saying that you can't have jewelry, tattoos, and be flashy etc. unless you come from an African-American background where you sell drugs and you're only trying to humor yourself to justify what you're doing. He's feeding in to the stereotypes that he hates. I'm not a fan of Riff Raff by any means, but Ebro comes off as borderline racist

I kinda fu*k with riff raff on some k!ll some time, guilty pleasure sh*t, but some of yall are bending backwards to miss ebros point

His point is that he thinks riff raff might actively be trying to satirize and mock black ghetto culture (and that's something alot of his hipster fans think too if you read some blogs...they think that it's all some ironic social commentary on rap music)

There's literally no backstory or history on this dude (seriously, try finding out where he went to highschool or any pics of him before this mtv g's to gents sh*t) and in Ebro's eyes there's a non-zero percent chance that he could end up being some hipster kid with rich parents from the burbs who does all of this as an intentional IRONIC joke, as opposed to genuinely like people who actually come up in a hood environment, where chains and "bling culture" are a means to establish worth and status when you don't otherwise have sh*t to your name...hence ebro questioning riff raffs background and why that's relevant to whether he's mocking black culture or genuinely adopting it (honestly, riff raff dodging those questions is sorta suspect)

if ebro's take was the case, then riff raff pretty much amounts to modern day blackface, with tats taking the place of facepaint....that's definately something worth thinking about, instead of just dismissing it as "playing the race card" or hating...especially when you look at the sea of white hipsters that make up the audience at riff raff concerts

personally, having wasted too much time of my life going thru riff raff vids...I'm leaning towards his persona not being an act. He might end up coming from an all white neighbourhood with a middle class upbringing, but in that case I think he probably just started out as a average white wigger with a lack of self awareness instead of a hipster "ironically" doing things he actually finds ridiculous

or he could just be an eccentric white dude raised in the hood
