Riff Raff is looking to cash in by going after the makers of the movie Spring Breakers. The rapper believes James Franco's character in the flick was based on him, and he has a good point.
Franco plays a character named Alien. A white rapper/gangster with gold teeth and long cornrows who looks remarkably like Riff Raff.
According to the former MTV star he is suing for $8 million-$10 million after not being compensated by Annapurna Pictures for using his likeness
"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," Riff Raff told TMZ. "Then I deserve to be compensated for some portion of that money."
