Riff Raff

I'm Suing for $10 Mil

Still Furious About 'Spring Breakers'

Riff Raff -- the rapper and former MTV reality star -- says he's suing the people responsible for the movie "Spring Breakers" for $8 to $10 MILLION ... because he believes he was the basis for one of the characters.

Basically, Riff believes James Franco based his character Alien (a white rapper/gangster with cornrows and gold teeth) after himself ... and therefore he should get a bag full of cash for his troubles.

On his way out of AV Club in Hollywood last night, Riff offered up the logic behind his case ... and it's glorious:

"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."

I was wondering when this was going to happen. When I first saw the movie, he is exactly who I thought James Franco was.

I'm sure he'll need all $10 million for that brain transplant he so desperately needs.

just another example of how rappers/ hip hop entertainers are poorly educated, horribly spoken dimwits without even the slightest bit of sophistication and/or class. what's even worse is that they seem proud to be so dumb. pitiful.

"hey, I'm an idiot!! i'll never, ever succeed scholastically! I can't speak properly and my elocution would lead you to believe that I have a speech impediment...might as well become a rapper!".
