Riff Raff Video 'Art Ballin' At Art Basel Makes Us Love The Art-Savvy Rapper More Than Ever (VIDEO)

When he is not mix-and-matching neon ensembles or shaving his immaculately executed zig-zag facial hair, rapper RiFF RaFF is building a rep as an art critic. The fruits of his labors are clear in "Art Ballin'," a RiFF-RaFF-tastic tour around Art Basel Miami beach conducted by a questionably sober hip-hop artist and produced by Pharrell's YouTube channel iamOTHER.

The hilarious video, which we spotted on Paper Mag, features RiFF RaFF waxing poetic on Basel's standout pieces in ways Sister Wendy never could. He really puts it all out there, or in his words, "sweated out his perm," for the video. He also sports a fantastic jacket, which we actually once spied a version of in a Manhattan thrift store.
