Riff Raff Explains The "Versace Baby Rattle"

Posted by on Sat, Dec 15, 2012 at 3:52 PM

Do you remember that rapper Riff Raff, who's coming back to Nectar tonight for all ages (5pm) and 21+ (9pm) shows, made a song about Seattle?

The chorus: "VERSACE BABY RATTLE GOT ME SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE."


When we encountered him at the NADA party in Miami last week, I brought up this 206-centric masterwork, and he very graciously broke down the science.

"Y'all know what 'molly' is? Well when you get really pure molly, from Germany or Australia, it's in little rocks. So when you have a little bottle of those, and you shake it"—here he imitates the motion—"it's a Versace baby rattle. So 'Versace baby rattle'"...he trailed off. "Got me Sleepless In Seattle," we finished, in unison. "Yeah", Riff Raff said. Around his neck was the mixed-fruit colored diamond Cheshire Cat chain Diplo gave him for signing to Mad Decent. His hair was in crisp curls, like translucent blonde bacon, his Miami-hued Brian Bosworth BluBlockers smudgeless, his Picasso jacket very rare. Hit up Nectar tonight, you might see "Griffey Junior, Griffey Senior in the limousine-a."
