"Kokayne" - RiFF RAFF [SoundCloud Audio Stream]

With just under a month until his debut studio album, Neon Icon, drops, Houston-based rapper RiFF RAFF has released his third single off the album, "Kokayne."

"We were up all night on cocaine," RAFF raps three times over the hook of the song. The Diplo-produced track initiates with a fuzz-fueled guitar melody that serves as the backbone of the track. Bizarre references to coked out nocturnal adventures are scattered throughout every verse, ranging from charging $10,000 for a handshake, to hitting Taco Bell at 3 AM.

The second half of the track fades the guitar riff to the back and introduces a female voice that condenses the various emotions and longings of the typical cocaine user into the simple lyrics, "I need it, I want it, I would do anything for it." I can't say whether or not "Kokayne" will become a staple of this summer's repertoire, but I can already see it blaring through the speakers of a black Cadillac speeding across the George Washington.

Neon Icon will be out June 24th. You can preorder it on iTunes, Amazon, and Google play. This July also marks RAFF's two year anniversary on Diplo's Mad Decent label.
