A Brief History of White People Rapping in Movies

James Franco as Alien in Spring Breakers (2013)

Song: "Hanging with Da Dopeboys" by Dangeruss
Level Of Embarrassment: Spring Breakers laughs at the idea of embarassment

Making his entrance in Harmony Korine's film as dancing piece of candy Spring Breakers, Alien (played by James Franco with extra relish) is first scene performing "Hangin With Da Dopeboys" by Dangeruss, the rapper who Franco shadowed as prep for the role. It's awesome. He then talks about how St. Pete during spring break is a special ethereal moment. A place, in fact, that we've all been transported to.

He's not lying. Spring Breakers is an experience and a journey. Hold on to your butts. —RS
