Hip Hop and Country music. It's a pairing that's been around for years. Think about Kid Rock and Nelly, who fused the genres together in a "successful" manner, and there's even a genre called Country Rap, which we wouldn't recommend checking out, but you might want to anyway.
Now, even RiFF RAFF is looking to tap into the Country market. The rapper just announced that his next project will focus on Country music, and as Fader points out, he's asking his fans for a little help.
Announced via his Instagram account, RiFF RAFF's next album will be called Truck Stuff & Butterscotch Butts, and he plans to begin recording the new material in October. With the recording sessions on the horizon, he's made a call to his fans to be a part of his 8 person band.
"We are making a 8 person band can't wait to see which hard working talented country song writers / instrument players we will be traveling the world with"
If you would like to get involved, for whatever reason, please feel free to send "original country song demos only, no covers" to RiFF RAFF's designated email account, TruckStuffJody@gmail.com.
Remember when RiFF RAFF released music on Diplo's Mad Decent? How could we ever forget?
