Riff Raff's Word Of The Day: Surcease (sur-SEESE)

 riff_raff_library

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. Today's linguistic lesson -- our final one of the series -- focuses on the word "surcease." Take a look at the video, follow the social media titan's musings on Twitter and make sure to commend him for a job well done throughout this mighty educational endeavor.
