Riff Raff Is Suing ‘Spring Breakers’ Creators For $10 Million


Riff Raff is claiming the creators of the film, Spring Breakers, sampled his life without giving him production credit. Now he plans to sue for up to a cool $10 million. TMZ recently caught up with the rapper and former reality show participant, and Raff sounded pretty clear on his intentions to bring suit against the people involved with creating the film.

“We are seeking $8 to $10 million right now,” he said outside of the AV Club in Hollywood, last night. Spring Breakers lead character, “Alien,” played by James Franco, bares an eerie resemblance to the Houston rapper and is also portrayed as an aspiring MC in the film. Riff spoke up about the movie back in January accusing the film makers of using his likeness. Now it sounds like he has officially decided to take his issue up with the courts. “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,” he said.

Do you think he has a case?
