Whose Wayward Brother is This on Vine? Oh Yeah: Riff Raff

Sometimes, loitering on Twitter outside of my mentions gets me in trouble. Today was one of those times because I came across the Vine video below and I almost fell out my chair.

I am frightened. What is this and why is this? Who what when? I have questions and I wanna just dip my laptop in holy water because this human snake here…

First of all, this dude legit went and got his teeth filed into bangs. Maybe looking like a serpent about the mouth is what’s hot in these streets. And then he capped them with gold. He really wanted people to take his name (Riff Raff) literally.

And then, he takes off the hat to reveal a head of cornrows dyed pink at the top with beads at the bottom. Because it’s 2000 and he’s a pop singer named Pink. Plus, he’s overgrown as hell and doesn’t have mentors.

To top off his “you’re such a damb bird” status, homeboy is rocking an MTV tattoo on his neck. Anyone who tattoos a corporation’s logo on them doesn’t wanna have nice things. Can’t they be sued for copyright infringement? Or at least for having piss poor judgment.

Prince Do Not Want gif

Chile… AND this fool got his face looking like Charlie Brown’s tshirt with the zig zag beard. I don’t have time for his foolishment. We gon pray for him. He’s talmbout he wants to blow up and act like he don’t know nobody. Who is willingly claiming him as part of their crew? Chile… ok.

I see how y’all do on Vine! The devil be busier than my computer’s RAM when I have Photoshop, Illustrator, 20 tabs in Chrome and all of the Microsoft Office suite open at the same damb time.

Whose wayward brother is this and why is he a mess?

Update: I heard he’s a rapper who was on an MTV reality show. I guess that explains the tattoo. Actually, no it doesn’t. That is still dumb. I cannot and will not even deal with this. NO MA’AM!

    I honestly thought he shaved his facial hair to look like those damn fangs in his mouth…you know, to be consistent with his foolery.

      Life was given to me through that gif after I lost it watching that vine.

    Luvvie: this guy was dating Katy Perry a couple of weeks ago. Now she’s dating Diplo and supposedly this RiffRaff character is all brokenhearted. All this is according to some “other blogs”.

      Exactly! That was all I could think about: “are we not gonna talk about how they are blue at the ends???”

      I rebuke him…and his “main goal”!

    Why do you do this to us? You just want somebody to be up with you at night (on Twitter) ’cause after this none of us will be able to sleep.

    I need to burn some sage. After I pray. And meditate.

  9. April 23, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    He’s actually a pretty big emerging rapper (or is starting to be–he’s done collabs with Drake, A$ap Rocky and a lot more).

    But I just….can’t. His mouth looks like what if a snake Ms. Pacman had a baby and that baby was this dude’s mouth.

  10. Jay
    April 23, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    Yep he has a song out called how to be the man. I only know this because one of the kids on my husband’s Pop Warner team brought this devilment to my attention. He was one of the Offensive lineman. He jogged with giggly glee over to where I sat next to the water cooler after practice said Mrs. Jay look this is who I was telling the team about Riff Raff. I told him if he ever brought such unholy ratchet nonsense to my attention he’d be an 8 play player for the rest of the season.

    A: The first time I saw this, it scared me,,,,genuinely scared me….and since I have a douchebag brain,,,,this vine will appear in my mind, on repeat, rendering me catatonic.

    B: His name is Horst Christian Simco, so his parents dislike him with the same intensity as I.

    First off, this Prince gif is everything!! As his royalness glides through like a unicorn on ice with all the saltiness etched beautifully on his face! Yaaaaaasss!!!

    As for the video, I didn’t watch it because I’m pregnant and my doctor said to stay away from foolishness and terror. You will not have my baby having nightmares. That pic alone made me ill. Where’s my preggy pops…

      Yes! A unicorn on ice! You are wise to protect your baby from this foolishness.

      I watched without sound. GAH!!! Then I watched Prince and his magic side-eye to repair my eyes. Now I’m gonna go look at the President and the First Lady in all their perfect Easter splendidness to restore my faith in humanity

    This man obviously is never going down on a woman, ever again. Considering the ignorance needed to do some dumb shyt like this, that’s probably a good thing.

    April 23, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Go look at ridiculousness with Riff Raff on it (google it). He was on there as a guest one show, and I almost hit the floor. if HE can make it, anybody can. He is even more ignorant talking in his fool natural self.

      April 24, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      I saw this episode too. As far as entertainment goes, he is funny! Funny because he is just so stupid and ridiculous!

    April 23, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    Lawd…I remember this knucklehead from that MTV show “From G’s to Gents” with Fonzworth Bentley. This foolery ain’t nothing new for Riff Raff.

    Exhibit A-Z:

    • Lennette
      April 23, 2014 at 11:40 pm

      Yes! He was a straight fool on that show! Making Beyoncé’s hometown of Houston look bad!

      Sadly I knew about him from watching that show too and he still hasn’t gone away ugggh. Thank God he’s white is all I can say.

    That was creepy as hell. And, I bet he raps about how good he is at “making the secks”. With all that yuck mouth and foolishment? No, sir! And, I need that Prince .gif as my screensaver. It is everything!

    Who is this poor, unfortunate child’s parent? Might we find him or her and simply ask “But for why tho?!?!?!?!?”

    This poor young man is Grand Court Jester in the Kingdom of Bad Decisions!!!!!!! He makes me want to hold him to my bosom and let him cry it out because I know he’s lived a hard and fast life that he wasn’t ready for…

    *le sigh* #idontwannaliveonthisplanetanymore

    #iCant even muster the energy or umph to discuss that Vine abomination. I will say, however that I will be incorporating the Prince side-eye .gif into my daily life because YAAAAAASSSSSSS!!!!!!

  28. April 23, 2014 at 9:04 pm

    How is anyone taking Jabber Jaws seriously? All I know is the Prince .gif has brought me new life after being down for the count with the flu. Thank you, Luvvie!

    I had to head over to google for a little leg work. I thought there was a vein in the tongue, but wasn’t sure. I’m scared he will bite through it and off himself…

  30. Jasminesound
    April 24, 2014 at 3:02 am

    So no one is going to mention his BET tattoo?

    He is the king of bad decisions and questionable body art, but he’s not a terrible rapper.

    What’s real messed up is that those are Porsche Panamera seats. He has a freaking Porshe and I rode the CTA to work this morning. Now if you’ll pardon me, I need to find out how to get to the roof of my building.

      I just can’t even.

  36. Shonda
    April 24, 2014 at 11:48 am

    LOL!He has nice white teeth only two are fangs and they aren’t even that sharp . That’s just the way he had his grill made.

  37. Shonda
    April 24, 2014 at 11:50 am

    Go check out his vine,he doesn’t wear the grill all the time it shows his real teeth.

  38. Lyzette
    April 24, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    Scary, scary stuff. But how come no one has mentioned his Vine avatar? A baby and a puppy? Did anyone check if they were ok after posing with Mr. RiffRaff? Did they get their shots before he touched them?

    The power of Christ is clearly the only thing that will keep this level of ratchet out of your life. It is toxic; that much I am sure of… run now before it is too late.

    April 24, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    that is so sad. he wouldn’t be a bad looking person if he wasn’t trying to look like he is beyond the thunderdome. maybe he’s secretly preparing for the apocalypse or maybe he’s a human dog fighter. iono.

    April 25, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    It’s not like I don’t know better. I swear I do. WHY do I continue open Luvvie’s posts when I’m not in a cackle-free zone?!? This dude looks like the Green Goblin without the colourful skin-hue. ::SHUDDER::

  42. April 25, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    I love humanity. Most times I imagine me and the whole world on a cliff looking out at the sea, standing hand in hand singing the coke song.

    #Screech. Then some dumbass like this comes along and reminds me that some of us are off key and don’t deserve nice things.

    Why would you do that to your mouth? For fame and fortune? Why?

    Ganesha spread some wisdom.

    Snatching that Prince gif because right now that’s me.

    He’s a pretty dope rapper. I listen to his music instead of watching the videos. For reasons.

  44. lchayim
    April 29, 2014 at 10:04 am

    That’s a grill he’s wearing. He has nice, even, white teeth and he can rap, if you’re into rap. He’s collaborated with some pretty big name rap stars.

  45. Solo Dolo
    May 2, 2014 at 9:54 am

    I know about him..he WAS signed to SODMAG (Soulja Boy). Don’t judge me for knowing. He’s in the same category as Lil B n nem. Him being signed to SODMAG is enough reason as to why he looks like Ali G

    May 12, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    I wonders if he ever bit his tongue by accident. I’m sure it was painful.

    You guys really no nothing about him so you have no clue what he does and why. Those are fake teeth like the fangs we used to get as kids except his are gold… They come right out. He is a rapper with a talent through the roof, and I can personally garauntee you he has more money that anyone of you combined

    I don’t know who he’s emulating or what he’s trying to be, but when a guy like this makes “juggalos” look like reasonable people, then there needs to be a point where he re-evaluates his life & says, “Um… oops”
