Rif Raf New EP ‘Day 1′ Out Now

Written by Marc Zanotti on March 23, 2013

Cronulla rapper Rif Raf’s new EP, Day 1, is out now. The name is one you might recognise from short-lived ‘reality’ TV series The Shire, with the EP’s lead single Always Home standing up for Raf’s hometown, which earned a bad reputation during the show’s run.

Always Home is the story of Rif Raf’s (real name Joel Rafidi) roots, as the rapper explains, “The message I want to relay in this song is that we are one and I will always pay homage to where I come from.”

As for the EP, Day 1 is a way of giving back to the people and place that have supported Rif Raf since his musical journey began as a small 10-year-old child.

Day 1 is ultimately a tribute to my very good friends who have always showed their utmost support and belief in the fact that I could become everything I am from day one,” explained Rif Raf.

“It finally feels like Day 1 is the first day of the rest of my life and I understand who I am and the path I must take.”
