Riff Raff's discontent with Harmony Korine's recent film Spring Breakers and the countless physical similarities between him and James Franco's character, Alien, are no secret. Back in February of this year, after it was revealed that Alien was actually modeled after Florida rapper Dangeruss, Riff Raff even emailed us a detailed list of all those similarities—in short, he was pissed. There's a saying that time heals all wounds, but we're pretty sure whoever said that didn't have a character in a major motion picture more or less modeled after them, then received no credit. According to Riff Raff himself, in this case, time won't do it—but compensation will.
In a new street interview with TMZ, Riff Raff explained his plans to sue the producers of Spring Breakers for somewhere between $8 million to $10 million, because, in his words: "It's like if I have a front yard. And you're planting soil and you're planting trees and building peaches and houses and selling parking lots on my property ... then I deserve to be compensated for some portion of that money." Yeah, that's exactly what we were thinking too.
He adds, quickly, that he has no hard feelings towards Franco, who portrayed his look-alike—just towards those behind the film.
