These underground mixtapes would feature original songs with some of the music industries biggest selling artists like 50 Cent, Brandy, Lloyd Banks, and many more.
It wouldn't be until the end of 2007 when Riff-Raff would decide that it was time to end his break from Positive hip-hop and return to introspective, socially conscience roots. His decision came with a vision he had about an organization that would reach out to the community with Educational programs, Job opportunities, and most importantly, an inspirational message.

With songs like The Calling Riff-Raff explains to his audience how he once walked away from the calling, but now he's back never to walk away again. Also, in the song The City Riff-Raff depicts a portrait of a major city and how we miss things that go on because were not paying attention. Other key songs are My Block, Lock It Down, and Hold Me Back.
Anywhere I get invited to. I've done some really big events and some really small ones. I'll normally do whatever anyone invites me to.
Hip-Hop is my life so I like a lot of hip-hop artist. I've always strived to be the supreme hip-hop artist so I wanted to have lyrics like Nas, Delivery like Eminem, charisma like Jay-z, passion like Pac, and story telling like Biggie.
