Kicking off some of these projects, I have put together a series entitled, "The Process" to give my supporters a chance to peer into the creative process with some artists that I am working very closely with. Enjoy the latest episode below!
RiFF RAFF Guests On Matt Shadetek's Track "Bout It Girl"

Brooklyn producer and Dutty Artz co-founder Matt Shadetek enlists "Rap Game James Franco" and recent Diplo signee Riff Raff for a signature free-associative verse. "I feel like he's the Andy Kauffman of rap," Shadetek says, "Some people don't get it, and they HATE him. Most white rappers are very approval seeking, they want to be accepted by the rap mainstream and so they try to keep it real and be normal. Riff Raff is just out there not giving a fuck doing his own crazy thing. I recorded the vocals for "Bout It Girl" with a DJ Screw slowed-down feel, and thought he'd be perfect for the track."
It is an anthem for the inevitable collapse of the Establishment, amongst other pertinent things... and the video was shot in the middle of Their Lair in London, where we encountered cops with machine guns guarding rich folks and got repeatedly kicked out of Traffalgar Square for dancing.
Quelle Chris - We Eat It (REMIX) f/ P.u.d.g.e. & Chris Keys

Quelle Chris' ode to GMOs, hydrogenated oil, and the poisonous wasteland that is American nutrition has gotten a tummy tuck, stomach staples, and plastic surgery. After releasing the video for the original track "We Eat It" (off the new album "Niggas Is Men") last week, Quelle Chris has put together a remix featuring P.U.D.G.E & Chris Keys. The new version wraps the lyrical message around a beautiful piano loop and is as distorted as the American view on diet.
