Riff Raff gave Syracuse “4 million” reasons why they should have been at the Lost Horizon This past Thursday, March 2, performing his signature brand of crunk braggadocio to a packed house of CNY’s trillest. Draped in a gold chain to match his shiny rings and belt buckle, the Houston-based rapper dazzled the audience with thumping beats and catchy refrains about his lavish lifestyle. The crescendo of his set was the aforementioned banger “4 million,” which had the crowd singing in unison about Riff Raff’s purported income from the 2016 fiscal year.
All in all, it was a high-energy performance and unforgettable party for everyone in attendance. The opening acts were Sig Roy, Dom x Vince Cioci, followed by Cuse Williams featuring DJ Lionheart. Yola Cerew replaced Atrilla for one last crowd exciter before Riff Raff hit the stage. The first song in Cuse Williams’ set “Left for Dead” was definitely a highlight of the evening. The track began with clips from a news report about a shooting in Syracuse, and was followed by heartfelt lyrics against gun violence.
