Houston rapper Riff Raff is reportedly going to keep fans waiting for his delayed Neon Icon album to arrive in stores after announcing its latest setback.
Riff broke the unexpected news to his Twitter followers this week and dished out some frustrations.
“SO… i DiDNT WiN A GRAMMY AND i JUST FOUND OUT MY ALBUM GOT PUSHED BACK .. KOOL DAY !! ……… WHAT THE EVERLASTiNG F*CK !!,” Riff tweeted January 26.
“i HAVE NO iDEA WHEN THE NEON iCON ALBUM WiLL DROP, ASK @DiPLO”

Last fall, Riff said he expected the album to hit store shelves today (January 28).
“NEON iCON THE DEBUT ALBUM DROPPiNG JANUARY 28 ON THESE STREETS THEN ALL COPY CATS WiLL BECOME OBSOLETE,” Riff tweeted October 31. (Riff Raff’s Twitter)
Back in August, Riff spoke on his album facing off against Young Money stud Drake’s Nothing Was The Same album.
“It’s not a competition. It’s my way of doing community service cause I’m trying to save on the environment and the gas money,” he tells XXL during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. “Instead of going back and buying my album a couple weeks later, you might as well go drive and make one trip. Pick up everything. Buy both albums. I’m just being nice to the environment.” Just like every diehard fan, Drake’s last new friend will certainly be picking up Nothing Was The Same in a few weeks. “Of course. I can’t wait for it to come out,” he said. (XXL Mag)
A few days prior, Raff acknowledged Drake’s album being pushed back a week.
“RiFF RAFF & DRAKE ALBUM DROPPiNG THE SAME DAY http://instagram.com/p/dTYDOns1lC/ ,” Riff tweeted August 22. (Riff Raff’s Twitter)
