Published Dec 22, 2014Riff Raff proclaimed over the weekend that he's about to take his career "to the next level" next year, having announced plans to issue two albums by June that will flex both rap and rock sounds. The records are set to be titled The Peach Panther and The Purple Panther.
Riff Raff revealed his plans through Instagram over the weekend, noting that two separate albums are set to land on June 1.
The Peach Panther is described as a rap album that has the Houston hip-hop figure handling all the hooks and will feature no guest appearances except for Jody Husky (a.k.a. his dog).

The Purple Panther, meanwhile, finds Riff pulling a Lil Wayne and channelling his inner rock star. The "neon rock album" will feature live instrumentation, and he's apparently enlisted a drummer and guitarist already, describing the latter as possessing a "candy aquaberry guitar and she looks like a hot topic commercial with black and neon nails."
The rest of the message details how Riff Raff has hooked up with pro musicians that are about "being legends and not strung out on drugs becuz i can't have my band being sick on me becuz we have worldwide shows for the next 40 years."
"This will be the beginning of the neon rock era and the Jody Highrollers neon rock career era," he added.

Since Riff Raff confirmed that he is "no where[sic] near started yet" on either project, you can check out his newly delivered video for "Kokayne," from this year's NEON iCON, beneath Riff's message.
