The ‘Hologram Book of Neon Poems’ From Riff Raff You Never Knew You Needed


James Franco‘s favorite rapper has been a bit quiet lately, but now we know why: he’s been finishing up his new album, Peach Panther, and prepping the release of a new book of poetry, titled Neon Vibes. Riff Raff’s new book will have a “hologram” cover, and likely elevate the ancient form to new heights, as evidenced by the teaser he provided on Instagram: “DiAMONDS ON NECK / i GOT RUBiES ON WRiST / i PASSED YOU THE BALL / AND YOU BROKE MY ASSiST.”

The former Season 2 contestant on MTV’s From G’s to Gents also has a “mini-album” called Trench Coat Towers on the way, a holdover while Peach Panther—which Riff has promised will feature a guest appearance from Justin Bieber—is being finished. Both Neon Vibes and Trench Coat Towers are set for a November 13 release. In the meantime, enjoy this clip of Riff Raff at his finest, freestyling on an Amsterdam radio show for 10 minutes straight before breaking his chain. He is truly the Ginsberg of our era.
