Riff Raff, 'Neon Icon' (April 29th)

Riff Raff, rap's favorite human meme, will finally release his long-awaited full-length debut, Neon Icon, after some last-minute legal issues pushed back a planned January. The Diplo-produced album has been two years in the making and features guest spots from Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller and the Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman – but most importantly for Riff Raff, it attempts to make the case that he's more than in Internet fad. "I'm not a comedy rapper," he says. "I do music based on vibe. I want people to feel something they've never felt with another artist."
