Riff Raff is making moves ya’ll. He already seems like a character, but the Houston native will get the chance to show off his true acting skills on a forthcoming episode of One Life to Live.

The one-time G’s To Gents cast member will play a shady Miami art dealer, on the beloved soap opera. Riff Raff shot his scenes on the show’s Stamford, Conn. set Wednesday, where the storyline found the rapper visiting Shelter (a popular hotspot Shelter in the show’s fictitious city of Llanview), looking for character, Cutter, played by Josh Kelly. Riff Raff reportedly had several scenes with Kelly, and Bollywood actress Shenaz Treasury, who plays Rama.

Since being a contestant on the MTV reality show aimed at polishing “gangsters” into respectable  young men, Riff Raff has continued to make a name for himself on the music scene. Producer Diplo signed the tatted up rap star to his Mad Decent imprint last year, gifting him with a $45,000 chain.

He’s also released three albums thus far and recently revealed collaborations with Drake, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, and more.

Watch Riff Raff’s One Life To Life episode May 7 via Hulu.com.
