Riff Raff's Word Of The Day: Onomatopoeia (on-uh-mat-uh-pee-uh)


With a Skrillex collabo and studio debut said to feature hip-hop heavyweights such as Drake, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller both in the works, as well as scene-stealing guests stints on "Ridiculousness" and "One Life to Live" now under his belt, Mad Decent music artist and former "From G's to Gents" contestant Riff Raff is a neon-bright star on the rise, already achieving some iconic status for his outrageous fashion sense and lyrical wizardry. (Fittingly, he's named his upcoming album "Neon Icon.")

There's a lot to be learned from Riff Raff, which is why he's serving as Remote Control's honorary academic for the entire month of June, doling out definitions of a big word each day.
