With a personality as big as the state he is from, Houston native Riff Raff is no longer a hidden gem in the rap game. He's gone from the bug-eyed, wiry, electrocuted, freestyle machine to the more brolic, observant father to his huskies. Regardless of his experience and exposure, Riff remains to be one of the most enigmatic, polarizing entertainers of our time. So, although a tad overdue, here are my 15 favorite lines from Riff Raff, a very tough number to narrow it down to.
