Riff Raff Background
Horst Simco grew up just outside of Houston. His first passion was basketball, shooting hoops whenever he had the chance with other kids in his neighborhood. When his parents divorced, Simco bounced between staying with his father in Duluth, Minnesota, and his mother in Houston.
In 2001, he went to Hibbing Community College in Hibbing, Minnesota. He dropped out a couple years later and returned to Houston where he worked on establishing a distinctive identity.
In 2005, he took on the persona of Riff Raff and began rapping. He took his homespun CDs to different Houston-area malls for distribution. He cited fellow Texan rappers Paul Wall and Devin the Dude as his early inspirations. Riff Raff also leveraged the Internet and posted his songs and videos on WorldStarHipHop, MySpace and YouTube.
To boost his chances for getting on TV, Riff Raff put himself out there and auditioned regularly. Fate stepped in when he got his break on From G's to Gents - an MTV reality show. Even though he was only on the show for a short time, he used his time wisely and made a huge impression on fans, who were drawn to his flashy wardrobe and sense of humor.
Word of Riff Raff got to Simon Rex, rapper, actor, model and comedian. Rex reached out to Riff Raff after viewing one of his videos which include Riff Raff's phone number. The pair became fast friends and stepped into the studio together as Riff Raff and Dirt Nasty. Eventually they founded Three Loco, joined by Andy Milonakis (comedian). The union helped to bolster Riff Raff's image and reputation.
In 2011, Riff Raff settled down in L.A. and worked on issuing more music videos to raise his profile on the Web. By the middle of that year, Riff Raff inked a contract with S.O.D. Money Gang Inc. - Soulja Boy's record label. Riff Raff left the label when he wasn't paid or promoted.
Riff Raff had started working with Harry Fraud and Action Bronson prior to his separation with S.O.D. and their collaboration culminated into the video for "Bird on a Wire." The song caused quite a stir on the music scene and earned "the 27th best song of 2012" - a list compiled by Complex Music.
In 2012, Riff raff issued music videos for the tunes "Time," "Cuz My Gear" (with Chief Keef) and "Larry Bird." He additionally publicized that he'd be collaborating with Diplo on the album Jody Highroller. In the early summer of that year he dropped the Summer of Surf mixtape. He cinched a contract with Mad Decent, Diplo's label, around the same time. Riff Raff's latest effort is Neon Icon.
