Last week, rapper and all around entertainment entity Riff Raff made his acting debut when he stepped into the shoes of a character named Jamie Franko on an episode of the soap opera One Life to Live. (The name is a barb at his nemesis James Franco.)

With Drake having also clocked up TV minutes with his pre-rap role in Degrassi: The Next Generation," Hive asked Riff Raff if the two had discussed the idea of teaming up together to galavant on the silver screen. Riff Raff's response? "You say that as if someone already told you the news…"
