Riff is a R&B vocal group from New Jerseymarker, formed while its members were in high school. The ensemble began under the name Playboys in the late 1980s, with a style strongly influenced by doo wop.

After singing in the movie Lean on Me, the group changed its name to Riff and signed to SBK Records, releasing a self-titled album in 1991. The group scored several respectable hits, including three in the Billboard Hot 100.

Following the success of the album, the group appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show, The Tonight Show and Soul Train, and opened on tour for LL Cool J and Vanilla Ice.

The group's second album, To Whom It May Concern, came out in 1993 to mixed reviews. It had two charting singles on the R&B charts.

Anthony "Chill" Fuller, Dwayne "Stylz" Jones and Michael "Nitty Green" Best went on to join the group Men of Vizion.

In 2009, Riff reunited and started work on returning to the R&B industry with a new album.
