From spitting rhymes about Larry Bird, M. Bison (of Street Fighter fame) and Pete Sampras, to doing AC/DC cover sets, to getting MTV tattooed on his neck, you never really know how dramatic — or absurdly sharp — of a curveball is coming next from Houston's Internet rap sensation RiFF RaFF. Between his rhythmic Southern flow, mixture of street-wise and nerdy references and wild stage antics, he's been making some noise in the hip-hop game. And it's worth mentioning that James Franco will be playing a character loosely based on RiFF RaFF in the forthcoming film Spring Breakers, which the Huffington Post describes as "Scarface meets Britney Spears." Take a minute to wrap your brain around that.
