Matt Van Rooy Presents:
Aka the Neon Icon, bringing to Australia his full tint of laser beam lunacy of a world tour!
Known for his gleaming grills, razor-sliced eyebrows, zigzag beard, manicured cornrows and Evil Knievel jumpsuits, the Peach Panther touches down to punctuate his Southern-sizzurp style to tear-loose at Melbourne’s Max Watt’s for one night only!
That greasy white-boy-rapper out of Houston, Texas first flashed his persona through YouTube and as far back as when MySpace had play in the game. Then in 2008, he plugged into the virtual levels ofWorldStarHipHop video drops and mixtape pushes where he his larger-than-life look flamed into the fully-plumed caricature of hip-hop he currently portrays.
Signed to DJ legend Diplo’s Mad Decent label, he released his first major, Neon Icon (2014). It reached fourth place on Billboard's US Top Rap Albums chart and featured Childish Gambino, Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Mac Miller. First single ‘How To Be the Man’ was produced by DJ Mustard. He soon followed this up with Peach Panther, his second through his own imprint Neon Nation Corporation two years later. Grabbing third spot on Billboard's US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, the album shared a guestlist with emcees Danny Brown, Gucci Mane and G-Eazy.
In just over a few years in the game, he has risen to become the most iced-out paleface in the rap game since Vanilla Ice dropped Ice Ice Baby. So much so that his concert fees have increased tenfold just to illustrate the weight he’s put on in the industry. His shows soak through to the bone with a downpour of hardcore, rich rap-extravaganza. Where most rappers sweat vapors, RiFF RAFF shows drips diamonds of excess.
Hot-steppin’ into our reach with DJ Afterthought, Riff, aka Rap Game James Franco, (after his inspired portrayal in Spring Breakers), promises his performance to shine bright under the neons!
