Rapper Riff Raff Wants To Perform At Trump’s Inauguration

Riff Raff


I remember seeing this rap guy named Riff Raff, three years ago, he had a spot in a music festival downtown LA, and I wasn’t impressed. I remember a large crowd and Riff Raff looking like a sort of pimp on stage, surrounding himself with beach balls and hot blondes in bikinis, who obviously were only there to shake their butts. This was a very classy set, and I didn’t get what was exciting people this much, I moved on rapidly and went to see the Drums on the main stage…

Riff Raff is a white (trash) rapper from Texas, signed on Mad Decent and he is in the news because he declared (via TMZ) he would be ready to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration if the price is good:

‘Give me about $50k and I’m good,’ he said. ‘I’m in America. And I was born in America. And I love money, I’ve had enough money taken away from me by the Government, why shouldn’t I perform?’ He even added that he doesn’t care if ‘a pack of Starburst’ is the president as long as he gets a cut on taxes and he can afford a Lamborghini.

Honestly I would not even pay $5 to see him, but I would pay to never see him perform again. Why would he think that Trump is interested to invite him? I know that they both have this pimp mentality but I don’t envision Trump listen or remotely appreciate rap. I am even ready to bet that he doesn’t even listen to any music as a matter of fact. I know he was blasting the Stones during his rallies, at Mick Jagger’s despair I am sure, but that was for the sake of the show, Trump is a lonely man who doesn’t listen to music despite what he will tell you – I know he has name-checked Aerosmith, Elton John, Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson, because they are all ‘terrific’, the only adjective he uses to approve anything from his daughter’s physique to the next product he will promote, but this is not a man who appreciates music. He doesn’t have the soul for it.

Which brings to the question, looking at the list of artists and musicians who have expressed their anger or disdain when Trump was using their music, from Neil Young, The Stones, Aerosmith, Adele, R.E.M., George Harrison’s estate, Queen,… and looking at the artists who have supported Hillary Clinton, from Beyonce, Jay Z, Katy Perry, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen. Pharrell, Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez… who is gonna play during this damn inauguration? I guess this is why Riff Raff was making a proposition, although Trump will still have Gene Simmons, Pat Boone and Ted Nugent. Add Azealia Banks to the lot and it might turn bloody.
