Goofy absurdist Riff Raff might not be our spookiest rapper, but he’s the only rapper who’s given us an entire Halloween-themed album this year, at least thus far. Riff Raff put together the new Balloween in collaboration with DJ Afterthought, who is an actual person (I just checked) and not some esoteric joke. The album features him and his voluminous and wide-ranging array of guests going in over minor-key haunted-house beats. We’ve already posted first single “Back From The Dead,” which features Skepta, and the album also includes contributions from people like Quavo, Lil B, Yung Lean, Gunplay, Jimmy Wopo, Lil Debbie, DJ Paul, Lil Flip, and others. You can stream the whole thing below.
Balloween is out now, a few days early, on Neon Nation/Empire.
