With Riff Raff’s Halloween themed album Balloween dropping later this month, which will feature a slew of high profile artists, the Neon Icon has teamed up with recent Mercury Prize recipient Skepta on “Back From The Dead" as its first release.
Produced by Will-A-Fool, the UK MC and eccentric Texan do what they do best over the bouncy ghoulish beat, trading bars in their own particular cadences. Riff talks about cars with “butterfinger” colored interiors and Skepta grimly imagines his own funeral.
“When we decided to make the best Halloween album ever we had to get the #1 ranked UK artist on this song. Skepta 100%.” Riff Raff said. No stranger to conceptual work, he is about to start work on a country album called Truck Stuff and Butterscotch Butts later this month.
With no further ado listen to “Back From The Dead” here. Balloween releases October 25th and will feature production from Diplo, Calvin Harris and Sonny Digital, as well as guest appearances by Quavo, Lil B and Yung Lean.
